Gillian and Ruth secure podium place in Wicklow

Thursday, 19 October 2017

A sizeable contingent from Ballymena Runners made the long journey south to compete in the Run The Ridge in the Wicklow mountains.
And, it proved to be a highly successful showing for the local runners. In the 20km discipline Gillian Wasson finished second lady overall, breaking the existing course record in the process.
Not to be outdone, Ruth Murphy Aiken also secured a podium spot in the shorter 8km course finishing third. Well done to both ladies!
The rest of the strong Ballymena representation on what was, by all accounts a successful trip, consisted of Mark Alexander, Aidy Dodds, Emma Donnelly, Allison Douglas and Tim Lowry.
