Alan Ritchie made use of the bank holiday weekend to head to Kerry to take part in the Waterville Trail Running Festival, a multi stage race of 129.6 km and total elevation of 3720 metres taking in some of the Kerry Way with each stage consisting of 43.2 km and over 1000 metres per day over the 3 days .
Day 1 saw the runners head anti-clockwise and saw Alan finish in 5.22.11, day 2 was clockwise and he ran even quicker in 5.15.16 but there was better to come . Day 3 and anti-clockwise again he ran his quickest day in 5.14.22 finishing overall winner of the multi stage event and over an hour in front of second place . A perfectly paced weekend of running from Alan as he prepares to take on the West Highland Way shortly . Well done ! Arf ! Arf !
