This week’s long run saw myself and a few friends tackle a well trodden loop; the Mourne Way, Trassey Track to Hare’s Gap and back along the Brandy Pad.
It was a supremely wet and windy morning in Lisburn as I arrived at the car share location just after 7am; the forecast wasn’t looking much better for the rest of the day. We arrive in Donard Park, Newcastle, and managed to set off at 8.30am. It was still dark, and the wind was howling through the trees. There wasn’t much chance of my feet staying dry for long, especially in a pair of INOV8 Trailroc 150, which were getting their second outing.
