Harrier of the Month – June 2019

June was a super busy month for the club with many harriers taking part and helping in lots of crazy running adventures. June had us see Energia 24 and 24in24.

Special mention to our harrier hero Peter McGarry. Whilst out on his run at the pitches he came across a man who had collapsed and needed assistance – peter instantly ran to find the nearest defib. 

Peter McGarry 
‘ For helping a man while he was on a run who had collapsed and needed to be taken to hospital immediately. Another Harrier Hero’

Patricia Curistan 
‘Patricia is always a great support. I would like to nominate P for her support and encouragement during Energia and 24in24. Always puts others first and always great to see her happy smiley face x’

Neil Campbell 
‘Neil does so much for the club behind the scenes, it was his vision as chairman this year that saw 24in24 return and what a huge success it was. He always leads by example and is first in line to support or offer advice’

‘For being the main supportive and encouraging coach at Energia and for imparting his running knowledge and experience on all occasions.’

‘For the time he puts in for the club whether its taking sessions or just giving someone advice about running.’

Marie McFarlane
‘ For keeping us entertained and sane for 24hrs!!’

It goes without saying the harrier … on this instance HARRIERS of the month goes to two ladies who gave up their time to organise 24in24. This is one of many events they have organised within the club. Without all of their hard work going on in the background they wouldn’t be possible. We all appreciate your efforts. The winners are Laura C & Lee-anne!! 👏

Laura Campbell & Lee-anne Skillen 

‘These 2 ladies really deserve this for there tireless efforts supporting the club and managing busy lives. The carry out amazing work all year round for the club and still find time to run and represent the club in belfast marathon and energia 24. They do need commended for the organisation that went into 24 in 24. They should be so proud. What am amazing day for a wee club in Mallusk. Well done ladies. Careers in event management calling you both’

‘Has to be a joint award this month for all the work that went on to the 24 in 24 event. Many many hours of work went into making sure everything was perfect. And it was.’

‘I could probably nominate Leeanne every month. She is always working on something for the club or supporting someone – and always with a smile and the greatest of patience. All this on top of her own training and incredible performance at Energia 24 shows this girls strength of character and determination.’

‘They did an amazing job organising 24 in 24. Lots of hard work went on behind the scenes in preparation for the fab day we had. They were hands on checking everyone was ok … providing massages ( thank you Laura ) our own personal alarm clocks before arriving at each parkrun and generally good moral boosters throughout the whole experience – when times felt hard. ‘

‘Double nomination here for Laura and Leanne as they couldn’t be split – for the amazing effort organising and delivering a pretty special 24 in 24 ParkRun challenge – definitely way more demanding than running it! ‘

’24in24 unreal effort’

‘For everything involved in the 24’

Go celebrate with some well deserved prosecco ladies!! 🍾🥂

Another brilliant month for the club. Thank you so much for everyone who voted and well done to everyone nominated.
