Runner of the Month – February 2020

We are very nearly out of the dark nights and I for one cannot wait – although it hasn’t stopped the hardy Harriers and they continue to plod around the ‘not the bermuda triangle’ of Glengormley or crawl up and down the hills of Mallusk …..some even choose to run 50k from castle to castle!!

We had some lovely words about our nominees this month;

Suzanne Brennan was nominated for continuously giving 100% to her training.

Pamela McCafferty was nominated for her dedication to training and cross country, most recently she finished her long rung with Stormont cross country – her can do relaxed attitude makes her a great runner.

Dermot Boyd was nominated for representing the club so well at the Born to Run series, and still manages to find time to support the club as photographer at other events – thank you from us all Dermot!

This month we had one harrier who stood out for not only his commitment to his training, but also as an all-round great guy and fellow club member….our very own Ken McAuley.

Ken is a gentleman, he is encouraging at training, he listens intently to advice and cares about other club members training as much as he does his own.

He hasn’t always had it easy and has suffered his fair share of injuries…but his positive attitude has got him back running and he is in amazing form, which culminated in a PB at the Carlingford Half marathon at the weekend.

It’s always great to see Ken’s smiling face and hear his words of encouragement as we train. Well done Ken, a very worthy recipient of Runner of the Month

It wasn’t cold that night at all.
