Keen to put her hard winter training and experience at the Transgrancanaria to good use, Jill Connolly lined up alongside many seasoned ultra runners at the Florida Manor Festival of Running on Saturday 2nd April. The event comprised 24 hour, 12 hour, 6 hour and 3 hour challenges on a tarmac and gravel loop measuring @5km in the private grounds of Florida Manor near Killinchy. Jill elected to take on the 12 hour challenge and finished as 1st female and 2nd overall. She completed 19 loops for a total of 93.1km or 57.8 hours in 11:55:33, smashing her previous 12 hour PB in the process!
