Club Report – Sunday 8th March 2020

Eleanor Roosevelt said “Well-behaved women rarely make history”. I can only say that we must be one history making club. A couple of late results off the vidiprinter last week from Malta. The results of the Malta jury were: Half Marathon – Neil HOTM Campbell 1:23:50 and Marathon – Jay Scott 4:59:46 Taking the parkruns…

Club Report – Sunday 1st March 2020

On Feb 29th 2012, construction was completed on the Tokyo Skytree, the tallest tower in the world. On Feb 29th 2020, Ian Simpson and the Harriers took over the Valley parkrun, changed the route and survived. Not sure which was the more impressive organisational feat but I know which one involved the most Guinness. Taking…

Club Report – Sunday 23rd February 2020

“I love the feeling of the fresh air on my face and the wind blowing through my hair” So said modern philosopher, and all round deep thinker, Evil Knievel (look him up kids). But he had a motorbike and didn’t live in Mallusk. And should he not have been wearing a helmet? Anyway… Taking on…

Club Report – Sunday 12th January 2020

Apologies for the delay this week but I didn’t think it was right to issue the report without including the junior results from yesterday. Just as important as the seniors. And better in many cases! Back to just one parkrun a week. Thankfully. But we had bigger and better things to think about this week…

Club Report – Sunday 27th October 2019

  A quieter week this week as the hill headers and mudsuckers both took a week off. Unless you’re a junior. They don’t feel the cold like the rest of us. I know its cold when my teeth start chattering. And they’re still in the glass beside the bed. Taking on the parkruns this week…

Club Report – Sunday 20th October 2019

It’s all hills and muck so it must be the Autumn in Mallusk. The divas of road racing put their shiny shoes away for another winter as the headers and mudsuckers crawl out of the dark to climb hill trails and slog through bogs. Lovely. Late result off the vidiprinter again this week as last…

Club Report – Sunday 13th October 2019

What else can be said about the Kipchoge run. History made. A genuine lump in the throat, tear in the eye moment, even for a miserable git like me. Just over 8 parkruns in a row at 14:10 pace. But how many times has he volunteered? Late result off the vidiprinter, Dune Half Marathon from…

Club Report – Sunday 6th October 2019

Bit tired today. I was up late watching Scullion in the marathon last night and was busy being very impressed by Calum Hawkins. And hadn’t really recovered from Mageean’s PB earlier. All great stuff. It would almost inspire you to stick the trainers on and get out there. Almost. Late result off the vidiprinter, the…

Club Report – Sunday 29th September 2019

A busy week for the Harriers this week, on the road, over the hills, internationally. Plenty of running. And Utd haven’t even got beaten this weekend. Yet. Not mentioning rugby any more. Taking on the parkruns this week were: Valley parkrun: Patrick Hughes 24:51, Own Fulton 25:59, Alan Erwin 27:35, Sharon Dunn 29:06, Lee-Anne Hutchinson…

Club Report – Sunday 22nd September 2019

On Sunday, it was raining outside, Utd took another tanking on live tv, people kept talking about something called rugby. Not my favourite day to be honest. But I put my family sized trifle down long enough to read the Half Marathon results achieved by the Harriers and that cheered me up. A bit. More…
