Countdown is on for the Purple Ladies 5K!

  • 10th August 2017

Springwell Running Club's Purple Ladies 5K is taking place on Wednesday, 16th August 2017 at 7.30PM from the Joey Dunlop Centre, Ballymoney.

A spokesperson for the club said, "The numbers of ladies running has increased dramatically over the last few years. Entries have been flooding in, and it looks like we will have upwards of 300 ladies competing on Wednesday evening."

The 5K run is open to all ladies over the age of 12 years old, and is a female-only event.
Participants can walk, jog, or run at their own pace around the route, as Springwell Running Club are continuing to promote health and fitness in the area, whilst raising the profile of female sport.
It is hoped that this will be a fun event for all, with Marshalls positioned around the course to encourage everyone, and ensure their safe passage along the route!

Registration and pack collection is available in the Joey Dunlop Leisure Centre from 5.30PM.

Entry fees are £9 (affiliated) or £11 (unaffiliated), and there is a Technical T-shirt for the first 350 entries.

There are prizes for winners in all age categories.

After the run there will be a chance to talk to fellow runners and members of Springwell Running Club whilst enjoying some post-race refreshments.

The event is sponsored by GES Group, a market leader in Electrical and Mechanical Engineering, who specialise in motor rewinds and overhauls, renewable energy, HV/LV installation and maintenance, and the design and build of bespoke panels and switchgear.
Whether you are a beginner or an experienced competitive runner this event caters for all abilities! You complete the 5K at your own pace!

We look forward to seeing everyone at the Joey Dunlop Leisure Centre on Wednesday evening and afterwards for a catch-up!
