OCO present : Christmas in Armagh, Sun 16th December

Sadly, next Sunday sees the last Orchard County event of 2018. However, that can only mean one thing – it’s Christmas! So why not come and join us for a jaunt around the City of Armagh, followed by some festive fayre: Mince pies, mulled wine, satsumas, apple crumble ( just jesting… or am I??), and a Pac-man challenge. As usual, there will be something for everyone, beginners and experienced alike as we provide our last taster for the upcoming OCO Urban league. There will be 3 courses on offer as per Portadown. The courses will follow a middle distance urban format. Read More …

The Final WENT of 2018

The final WENT of 2018 will be held at Lady Dixon Park next Wednesday, 12th December.

Portadown & the People’s Park

I hope you all enjoyed your runs on Sunday. I just wanted to say thank you to everyone who turned up, especially all my Southern visitors. You very nearly outnumbered those from the north. It’s just a shame the weather wasn’t nicer, but hopefully it didn’t detract too much from the enjoyment of your run. I’ve already noted that A3 may be the order of the day next time around. Not because we need to extend the map but just to keep some of you on it. I know everyone likes to analyse their runs these days so in keeping Read More …

WENT 6 Belvoir Forest 5 Dec 18

A big thank you to Eibhlin and Connor for setting out WENT 5 in poor weather last week and congratulations to those runners brave enough to turn out!

You’ll need a headtorch, watch, compass and suitable footwear. As usual the cost is £2 for members and Read More …
