1/7/17 Louise Makes Club History

Louise made Club history, yet again, by becoming the first Club member to represent Ireland as she competed in the IAU World 24 Hour Championships at Victoria Park, Belfast.  The prestigious event attracted over 300 top ultra athletes from over 40 countries.  In only her second 24 hour endurance event, she bettered the distance she covered at the 2016 Energia 24 Hour Race, completing over 124 laps, equating to a staggering 127.76miles / 204.11Km, in the 24 hours, to finish as first Northern Ireland Lady in the World Championships; Silver Medallist in the AAI National Championships; and 38th in the World!  Her great performance aided the Team Ireland ladies to achieve a top ten position in the Team event.  The Club is extremely proud of Louise and her magnificent achievement.
