Congratulations to our very own Trevor Wilson on completing one of the big majors . Trevor travelled to New York for the marathon last weekend and finished with a 3.42 .
Anyone that knows Trevor will be aware of his love for Parkrun so it will come as no surprise to many that he managed to join a bus load of other marathoners and head off for a park run the day before the race . Well done Trevor . Arf ! Arf !
Well done to Philip Ward and Declan McGrellis who both completed yesterday’s We Run Wild NI trail marathon starting out from the stunning Carrickfergus Castle on a mix of road and trails with some mud thrown in for fun.

Runners were given a handbook at the start to follow the race route around and get themselves to the finish line . Both men managed to get round the tough course with strong finishes . Well done Arf ! Arf !
Declan at the start line ready to roll !
Last weekend Declan McGrellis travelled across the pond to take the Jedburgh Three Peaks Ultra. Definitely a race with a difference, 38 miles and 2800 feet elevation over forest trails , wobbly bridges , battlefields, riverbanks and an adventure playground named Playpark of Doom at the 27 mile mark .
Declan said the highlights involved the YMCA warm up dance led by unicorns at the start line and the playpark at 27 mile .
Sounds like good craic was had by all , well done Declan . Arf! Arf!
