There were plenty of thrills and spills during the Run For The Hills 10K trail run Pomeroy Forest Park on Saturday.

The event is supported and part funded by Cookstown District Council and is organised by Blood Sweat & Tears (BST) Extreme running in conjunction with the local Firemen in Pomeroy.

The Firemen were keen to raise awareness and funds for local charity SOFT when fireman Paul Murphy and his wife Martina sadly lost a child to the illness last year.

The SOFT foundation was set up by parents of trisomy children in Ireland. The charity is designed to help those affected by trisomy 13/18, Patau’s and Edwards’ syndrome and related disorders through a prenatal diagnosis, termination, birth of a baby, caring for a child, and bereavement.

All proceeds go to SOFT to help them with providing support and help to other families in a similar situation.
