Pure Running HM Series update (by ChampionChip Ireland):
Six of the ten races in the Pure Running Half Marathon Series have taken place and a record number of athletes are vying for the valuable prizes across all the male and female categories.
A total of seventeen hardy runners, of which three are ladies, have completed all six to date and are on target for the special garment if they get round all ten this year.
The ladies who have completed all six races to date include our own Gillian Strudwick, pictured above at Larne Half in March this year.
Total entries to the Series races to date are just shy of 7,000 and the DUNE Half Marathon, Larne Half Marathon, Lisburn Half Marathon and Ards Half Marathon were all up on last year so the aim of over 8,000 entrants again should be achievable in 2015.
The next races are as follows:
Saturday 18th July 2015 – Kennedy Jane McArthur Dervock Half Marathon
Sunday 2nd August 2015 – Cookstown Half Marathon
Saturday 15th August 2015 – Groomsport Half Marathon
Saturday 22nd August 2015 – Born 2 Run Dambusters Half Marathon
