Sperrin Harriers Christmas Roundup

As well as protein-loading on the Christmas turkey, the Sperrin Harriers found time over the festive period for some running too! The Loughmacrory 5 miler is always a fitting climax to the year and so it proved this year again with another superbly organised event. It was a beautiful day for running and all the runners are to be commended for getting over the huge hill about halfway through the course. Congratulations to Paul, Vincy and Patricia on their podium places.
