Emma has had a remarkable year on both the track and roads, setting new Northern Ireland Senior records on the track at 5000 metres and 10000 metres. She continued this form onto the roads and in November 2017 she set a new Northern Ireland 10K record time of 32.51 minutes at the prestigious Leeds Abbey Dash in England.

She continued her good form later in the month to win the Seeley Cup at Ormeau Park on 25th November.

Emma’s times this season have enabled her to obtain the Commonwealth Games Qualifying standard for both 5000 & 10000 metres.
