From Irish Mountain Running 2009

A big congratulations from Sportsworld to Helen White who represented Ireland in the European Mountain Running Championships!

On July 12th in Telfes, Austria, Helen and the Irish team took on some long and steep courses up against 300 athletes from 30 nations. The senior women’s race was 9.5km long with a climb of 950m. Helen qualified for the European Championships back on the 13th June and it should be noted this is only her debut season is mountain running! So well done to Helen on such an outstanding achievement!

A race report by one of the Irish team managers, Gerry Brady, is published on the IMRA website here along with photos.
