Karen Alexander (Sperrin Harriers) will make a welcome return for this event; the International lady suffered a fall whilst representing Ireland at the World Mountain Running Association Distance Challenge in Poland at the start of August (2013) but will hopefully have recovered sufficiently to defend her 10 mile title from last year.

Other top ladies could include Virginia Ervine (Mourne Runners), Patricia McKibbin (Murlough AC) and Keri Fitzpatrick (Unattached)..

But those are instruments with counterparty risk, whereas an ETF is structured like a mutual fund under the Investment Company Act, with assets physically held with a custodian. Not only does trading ETFs a lot pose potential issues for market, it likely will cost investors’ money.
