NICS Ramblers Club!

Five members of the NICS Ramblers took part in the Annual Causeway Coast 30K Challenge Walk on Sunday 3rd May which is organised by the excellent Bannside Rambling Club.

From left to right in the photo, taken at the Giants Causeway near the start of the walk, are Ivan Baxter, Lorraine Pollock, Carol Warke, Cowan Higgins and Jim Hamilton (Chair of NICS Ramblers).

This is a relatively tough trek which follows an undulating multi-terrain route from Portballintrae to Port Braddon and back with some very stiff climbs on the way. The event started in the pouring rain but as the day progressed the weather moderated and by the finish we were enjoying some warm Spring sunshine.

All members of the Club finished the Challenge within the allotted time of eight hours and received fine certificates and badges as mementos of a walk well done.
