Seapark AC members Bobbie Irvine, Vivien Davidson, Carol Downey and Tony Barclay joined members of Jog Carrickfergus in Dungannon to take part in Guide Dogs NI ‘Jog around the Bog’.

This five-mile race was enjoyed by all, with many of the ladies completing their first-ever race.

Picking up their medals were Julie Kelly, Nicola Irvine, Alison Gill, Cecilia Milburn, Nicola Clawson, Louise Shanks, Lisa Gepp, Suzanne McConkey, Helena Perry and Rosemary Hutton.

On Sunday, four athletes from Seapark AC were among the 38,000 runners taking part in the hugely popular London Marathon.

This was Richard Hetherington’s first ever marathon and he completed it in 3:55. Neill Harper crossed the line in 4:45, a new PB.
