Albertville 5 mile

On Saturday 1 March Sharon Barlow Hamilton flew the Ripon flag in her native Northern Ireland as she continued her great form, this time competing against hundreds of athletes in Belfast at the Albertville 5 mile road race, an event which signifies the beginning of the road racing season in Northern Ireland. The annual race caused quite a stir with the unexpected appearance of esteemed Irish International and double European Cross Country Champion Fionnuala Britton, who claimed the female title in 26 minutes 43 seconds. With such a quality field Sharon, was once again magnificent, finishing 4th female overall in 30 minutes 30 seconds, averaging just over 6 minute miles for a personal best time at that distance.
