Gerry BradyMay 29 2016, 8:05pmThe following team has been selected for the 2016 World Long-distance Mountain Running Championships in Slovenia on 18th June. It is the first time we have entered a team in this event and it is a well-balanced strong team. The race will be held over 42 km with 2800 metres of climb and descent. Savage.

Ian Bailey (Newcastle A.C.)

Richard NunanJun 19 2016, 10:54amThanks Gerry, looked like a savage race. Well done to Ian, Eoin and hard luck to Dan having to pull out. Hope you at least got to see a bit of Slovenia. Some savage mountains there!!
