Expleo Running Festival

We also had some runners in racing action today at the Expleo Running Festival in Belfast, with 5 of our athletes tackling the 10k distance. Our first runner over the line was Rick Hill who recorded a new personal best time of 36.33 to finish in 21st position. Then came the ever improving James Gourley who again dipped under the 40 minute mark ably supported by Ross Mercer. James finished 36th in a time of 39.41. We were also represented by the regular racing couple of Nicole & Peter Tucker. Nicole finished well up her age category recording a time of 1.01 to gain bragging rights in their home! Well done to all our runners & thanks to ChampionChip for organising a great meet.
