Lurig training will commence at 18:30 on Wednesday 13th July and run for four weeks ending Wednesday 3rd August 2016.
During the last 12 months we have seen our most successful year to date in the mountains. A number of our international runners started their mountain running journey on Lurig. Lurig is a fabulous short mountain race located in the heart of the glens and forms part of the fantastic Cushendall festival.
"We run the town" no longer applies. We run the country too, over hills, along the trails and even hit the track. This summer's training programme provides a rich variety of running terrains. On Wednesdays we're really mixing it up with training in Portglenone Forest, Lurig, Antrim track, Ballymena Academy and Ecos. Wednesdays are about strength, speed and balance. For details check the Train With Us page and the newly released summer rota. As ever, everyone is welcome.
