From Irish Mountain Running 2009

We are proud to announce that Helen White has been selected for the Irish Team to compete at this gruelling, uphill only event. Helen was selected for the team by virtue of a very strong performance at the trial event held by the IMRA on Clohernagh Mountain, Co. Wicklow last weekend. Remarkably Helen who only started hill running this year.

Over 300 competitors from 30 countries are expected to take part in this years European Hill Running Championships on the 12th of July. The event is being hosted in
the beautiful Austrian town of Telfes.

We all wish Helen the very best and hope that she enjoys the experience and has a great run on the day.

Full details of the Irish Team have been posted on the IMRA website.
