Clontarf and Gosford

It was a quiet week this week with everyone preparing for the upcoming Seeley 10k taking place in Ormeau Park this Saturday but that didn’t stop two runners who will be competing in that race. Both Louise and Martsje will hopefully be involved in an attempt to retain the women’s team crown for a third year in a row.


On Saturday Martsje Hell a member of the senior silver medal winning relay team at the recent NI Relay Championship travelled south of the border to take part in the so called flattest half marathon in Ireland just outside of Dublin. In a field of over 1700 Martsje was the leading lady home in a time of 1:29:04 setting a new personal best and a 40th place finish overall.


Born To Run Gosford 10k

Also On Saturday the Run Forest Run event series continued with the Gosford trail race taking place. Louise Smith was the sole harrier to take to the line in the Born to Run event and completed the 10k course in 39:53 for second female and first in the F45 category.
