Despite the winter weather kicking in, Termoneeny Runners have had yet another busy week running distances from 5K to 38 miles!
Jingle All the Way Charity Event, Ballymena
Well done to our friends Ballymena Runners who raised a whopping £1351.61 for the NI Children’s Hospice with their Jingle all the Way event at Lifestyle Fitness Ballymena. The event ran from 19th to 23rd November and Jacqueline McGonigle joined in on Friday 23rd November to run on the treadmill from 10am to 11am representing TRC where she was given a very warm welcome by Stephen and Allister from Ballymena Runners.
EAMS 6 Hour Challenge
Huge congratulations go to Fergal Hughes who took part in the popular EAMS 6 hr race on Friday 23rd. The race took place at V36 Park in Newtownabbey and consisted of 1.91 mile loops around the park. Fergal put in a superb performance and came home in FIRST place, running a total distance of 38 miles. This was a fantastic achievement by Fergal – well done!

Northern Velocity Run Fit 5K Fun Run Limavady
The beautifully scenic Roe Valley Country Park was the location for the latest race in the Northern Velocity Trail Series. Five TRC members took to the trails for this 5K flat and fast out and back course which was a bit tricky underfoot in places with a variety of running surfaces. However everyone put in top performances. Thanks to Northern Velocity for such a well organised and fun event, and the very welcome post race hospitality! The next run in the series is the Muff Glen 4 miler on 27th December. Results will be available on our facebook page as soon as they are available.
