Heart of Allihies 5 Mile Run was a great success with about 120 runners of all ages running walking or crawling around the fairly tough five mile course. Although it was a fairly tough course the scenery is amazing and that more than makes up for the difficulty This will go on to being a yearly event. Thanks to all who came.
Spinning sessions in Hall from Thursday the 20th of November at 630pm. We have 5 bikes and 15 spinning machines. Of course if you have your own bike bring it as there is nothing better than your own bike.
