Event Description

Back to East Belfast this week, but trying a new Coffee Shop.  Clements again but this time their Ballyhackamore branch.

Carparking – There is a free carpark just down the Sandown Road from the traffic lights, another behind the library, or a little hidden one behind Jason Shankeys Barbers (entrance off Earlswood Ave).

Meet from 7pm to jog out to the start location, for 7:30 start. 

If you have been Sporteering before you will know the drill, but remember your hi-viz and headtorch. If you haven’t been before please do come and read on for the details.
