Club Report 8th October 2017

“You and me we are in this together now. None of them can stop us now. We will make it through somehow…” The Avengers have nothing on us. They don’t have a gazebo for a start. A very busy weekend for our club with International Parkrun Day, NI and Ulster Relay Championships, and various races. Everyone suited up (we even got Terry in a vest) and did Mallusk Harriers proud.

Parkruns – Saturday 7th October. The Best ideas are often the most simple ones. 13 years ago someone had this great idea: everyone meets in a park at 9.30 am on a Saturday morning and goes for a run. That’s it!!! And look where we are now!
