Arklow’s Amy Masner was crowned the winner of the recent Omagh T48 Ultra event in Northern Ireland. This was the T48’s second year with participants completing loops of a running track over a period of 48 hours. There were also 12 and 24 hour options available.
The Arklow runner is no stranger to long distance challenges having previously run 246 miles over 60 hours during the Last One Standing Event in 2021. She has also represented Ireland in various competitions.
Amy beat off the competition at the Omagh T48 this year to finish with a total of 183 miles. If you are wondering, that works out to be a mind-boggling 732 laps of an athletics track. Driving wind, rain and sleet made for tough conditions however this didn’t dampen the spirit of the twenty four competitors.
