The annual Ballyhoura Mountain Marathon was held this year on the 30th of April and there three distances to chose from…a 36 mile Ultra, a 26 mile marathon and a 13 mile half.

We had 8 members in total taking part with 3 in the Ultra and 5 in the Half.

Well done to Deirdre Nagle who was first women home in the half!
