Club Members trained in Outdoor First Aid

2 newly qualified first aiders along with their instructor Raymond Shannon.

Bobby Smyth and Charlie Reid joined 12 other NIOA coaches and officials to undertake a demanding 2 day Rescue Emergency Care Level 2 course. This training, which was funded by NIOA, aims to give coaches and officials working in remote areas additional practical first aid skills.

Thanks to all involved in organising this very useful course.

Binevenagh at the Fishing Lakes

Binevenagh National Nature Reserve

There is nowhere quite like Binevenagh – and Northern Ireland Colour Series 4 should give all runners a good portion of cliffs, hillside, mature conifer and deciduous forest and, new for 2017, the Druncrun Fishing Lakes too (many thanks to George Canning).

For full details see the Event Info Page

Also calling all NWOC Club members – if you haven’t already volunteered for a job on the day please email me and we will fit you in.

See you at the Mountain!
