Never one to shy away from a challenge, Alan Hughes followed up his recent marathon debut with something completely different this past weekend. 

Operated by North Belfast Harriers around the trails of Divis and Black Mountain, Run DMC offered a selection of routes starting with 5 miles along the scenic mountain ridge, 7.5 to include the add on of a mountain summit or 9.5 miles incorporating a full mile of bog running along the nearby heath.

In the end Alan decided to go for the longer option, performing admirably to record a time of 1:35.49, 24th out of the fifty brave souls to toe the line.
