What an absolutely amazing day for our club. I’d like to thank everyone who helped put on such a great event: club members and their families and friends, the Lough Neagh Discovery Centre staff, photographers, drone operator, time keepers, our pre-race warm up guru and our generous sponsors not forgetting the competitors of course. The amount of planning and organisation that went into putting 350 competitors on the starting line was incredible and thanks to Paul Moore and his team leaving no stone unturned, I can say, the outcome was nothing short of spectacular. We had loads of positive feedback from those competitors who were able to speak after the challenge of the heat; what a scorcher of a day. Same time next year! see images here-https://www.facebook.com/DoublevisionImages/photos
