World Cup call for Ella and Sorcha

INTERNATIONAL selection beckons for several members of Omagh Harriers AC as Sorcha Mullan and Ella Quinn will be travelling with the Northern Ireland and Ulster mountain running team to the World Under-18 Cup, which will be taking place in Susa, Italy at the end of August.

The two girls will be competing against the top junior international mountain runners from around the globe and will relish the opportunity that they have worked so hard to attain.

In preparation for this prestigious event the girls will have to step up their training over the coming months to allow them to compete at such a high level.

The two girls, along with fellow Harriers Niamh Heaney and Matthew Neill are also included in the Northern Ireland and Ulster mountain running team for the British and Irish Championships, which will be taking place in Wales at the end of September with Sorcha, the current British and Irish silver medalist hoping to go one better to become champion.

The four athletes are also selected onto the Northern Ireland and Ulster team to compete against Wales during the summer.

Overall it is an exceptional achievement for Omagh Harriers to get four of their athletes selected onto the Northern Ireland and Ulster team.
