Sperrin Harriers have good run at the Carmen 10k

ON a cold, damp morning, approximately 30 Harriers made the trip to annual Carmen 10k.

With a field of nearly 200 runners taking their place at the start line, it was clear the weather wasn’t deterring anyone.

The ladies also had a great race with Rosemary Hargan crossing the line in 46.53, Ursula Kelly 50.17 and Hanna Su 50.58. Rest of the Harriers results are as follows.
