Due to the success of last year’s Purple Ladies 5K run, this now annual LADIES ONLY event will take place once more on Wednesday 30 April at 7.30pm from the Joey Dunlop Leisure Centre, Ballymoney.

The run is open to all ladies over the age of 14 years old and covers a distance of 5K (approximately 3 miles).

This event gives all ladies the chance to jog or walk 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 is to be a fun event. Marshalls will be positioned around the course to encourage everyone and to help with safety along the route!

Registration is available in the Joey Dunlop Centre from 6pm on Wednesday 30 April. Entry fees are £7 (affiliated) or £9 (unaffiliated) and there is a Technical T-shirt for the first 200 entries.

There will be prizes for winners in all age categories and everyone has a chance to win one of the various spot prizes.

From 6.00pm there will be stalls promoting health and beauty.

These include aromatherapy massage, reflexology and nutrition they will be only too happy to give advice and also provide a little bit of pampering if desired!

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.

Organisers would like to thank the sponsors GES Group and Flash in the Pan (Bushmills) for their continued support.

Check out the club website: for more information on running in the Ballymoney - Coleraine - Limavady areas and to download an entry form.

Entry forms are also available at the Joey Dunlop Leisure Centre and other local Leisure Centres.
