Carrickfergus Midnight Trail Half Marathon

On Saturday night,  at the stroke of midnight, our Chair Jacqueline took on the challenge of the We Run Wild NI Carrickfergus Half Marathon. This was a self-navigating event with directional notes to follow. The weather was perfect for the most part with the course taking in road, path, trail, mud, stones, hills and much more, but it was a superbly organised event with excellent hospitality at the end.

Congratulations to Andy Campbell, Olivia McKenna and Nicola Clements who ran Sunday morning’s 5K Peatland Park Family Run organised by Derrytresk Youth and Community Group. Despite some navigational difficulties everyone finished the course in good spirits with Olivia managing to clock up 5 miles!
