Club Report – Sunday 18th August 2019

Yes, it’s freezing, windy and the nights are getting darker. It must be August in Mallusk. And as thoughts turn to Christmas, you’ve all been getting in some racing before the first snow hits. Taking on the parkruns this week were: Valley parkrun: Ramunas Stanevicius 19:41, Neil Campbell 21:27, Alan Erwin 27:08, Neill McGlinchey 28:38,…

Club Report – Sunday 11th August 2019

The obvious highlight of the week (or any week) was a certain race over a PB course somewhere in darkest Mallusk. But more of that later.

Club Report – Sunday 4th August 2019

Well, the annual two weeks of overindulging, a diet consisting mainly of beer, pizza, wine, ice cream and beer again, has not really helped my elite training regime. Then again, I did do a couple of short slow runs when I was away. (Well, obviously just for the first week). I think that more than…

Club Report – Sunday 28th July 2019

Do you hear that sound? It’s the bottom of the barrel being scraped as both Cav and Work Experience Boy are both off enjoying their holidays, and so it’s left to yours truly to report on last week’s running. So down to business, beginning with a round-up of all your parkrunning. Waterworks parkrun Ken McAuley…

Club Report – Sunday 21st July 2019

Well good morning Harriers. As our weekly Cavillator is on a well deserved holiday you are once again lumbered with me. To start us off this week a few had their yearly pilgrimage to the Ards Riviera resort of Portaferry completing the 10 miles and relay where: 10 Miler Mark Smith 1.02:56 (1st in age…

Club Report – Sunday 14th July 2019

I’m walking on sunshine and don’t it feel good. So said Katrina and her Waves. I disagree. Both on a general scientific basis (it sounds dangerous to me) and also after my run today. I was practically walking and didn’t feel good at all. Taking on the parkruns this week were: Valley parkrun: Neil McCready…

Club Report – Sunday 30th June 2019

Only really one story in town this week but let’s get back to that. To catch up from last week, we now have the full Energia 24 results. Running as an individual, Craig Mills completed 101.65 miles. Amazing. We also had 2 relay teams competing. The Marathon Queens (Joanne Milne, Sharon Dunn, Leeanne Skillen &…

Club Report – Sunday 23rd June 2019

June is bustin’ out all over. So said Rodgers & Hammerstein (in that musical with the silly song about walking alone) but they obviously hadn’t spent much time in Mallusk. In fact, the sun only came out to annoy the headers in Victoria park this weekend. This reporter thanks those Harriers who managed to cover…

Club Report – Sunday 16th June 2019

It’s Father’s Day! The day where we all renew our annual stocks of pants and socks. Where we pretend it really is the best meal we’ve ever had. When what we really want is what made us fathers in the first place…… Firstly, taking on the parkruns this week were: Valley parkrun: Ramunas Stanevicius 19:52,…
