From virtual mountains to marathon runs, Three Counties Running Club has been playing its part to help both themselves and charity.
Member Jacqueline McGonigle had eight weeks to conquer the virtual Mourne Seven Sevens 17,052 feet elevation challenge, and did so with four weeks to spare.
Jacqueline covered Slieve Meelmore, Slieve Lamagan, Slieve Meelbeg, Slieve Bearnagh, Slieve Binnian, Slieve Commedagh and Slieve Donard, and was awarded with the official buckle.
Janette Smith ran 26.2 miles and raised £1,160 for Prostate Cancer UK, smashing her initial aim of £120 after her husband David was diagnosed with the illness earlier this year.
Janette then decided to run 72 miles for the month of January.
