Magherafelt Harriers athlete Darren Church travelled to Moville in County Donegal on Sunday past to take part in Rocks n’Roll Ultra Marathon, covering just under forty miles.

On a tough hilly course, in very warm conditions, Darren ran a Fantastic time of 5 hours and 35 minutes, finishing in second place, describing the race as one of his toughest yet, having completed four marathons in four days in Donegal in 2013. Congratulations to Darren on another magnificent achievement.

Lisburn Half Marathon- three Magherafelt Harriers travelled to Lisburn last Wednesday evening to take part in the Lisburn Half Marathon. With close to one thousand runners for company and on a very warm evening, our three athletes had strong runs.

Times- Thomas Doherty 1.50; Jayne Higgins 2.07; Yvonne Kielt 2.07.

Run For The Hills- Adrian Ferson travelled to Pomeroy on Saturday to take part in an off road obstacle race, which takes you through bogs, over walls and many other interesting obstacles.

Adrian managed to finish unscathed and enjoyed every minute of the race.
