EAMS Halloween Frightener (31/10)

Congratulation to NBH’s Ryan Armstrong who won the most recent 6 hour challenge hosted by East Antrim Marathon Series.  Ryan completed 8 laps in 5 hr 35 mins down at Loughshore to secure the win.  After a very wet Saturday night and set-up that morning, the grey clouds parted just before the start and the sun stayed out for most of the very long day!  Another top spot for NBH!
