CONGRATULATIONS to everyone who competed in the superbly organised Sperrin Harrier Winter League Series.

And, for the men, Jason Wilson - 3rd/M19 winner, Connor Reid - M30 (3rd), Kieran Scullion - M40 winner and Billy Bamber - M60 (2nd) all received recognition. Well done to everyone.

Ballymena Belles 5-Mile Race

The popular Ballymena Belles ladies only 5-mile road race returns on Tuesday April 9th.

This year's chosen charity is ‘The Macmillan Unit’ at Antrim area hospital.

A local unit and charity which gives invaluable care to those most in need during difficult times for them and their families.

There are very few of us who can say that their lives have not been affected by Cancer or another life changing condition.

This unit provides respite care and also cares for those who's conditions are terminal.

From every entry of the Belles race this year a percentage will go towards our charity donation, helping to support a valuable service in our local community.

Entries will be open soon, but this is one date to put in your diary!
