Runner of the Month – October 2020

It’s Dark in the Morning, its Dark in the Evening…..Winter is coming and the restrictions remain but the Mallusk Harriers crazy crew are not letting that stop them from dusting off the hi-viz, putting the trainers on and getting the miles in the legs…..even though very few of us have anything to train for! Who…

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!!…

Runner of the Month – September 2019

As the cold dark training nights begin to set it, September seems like a distance memory already.   September saw many Harriers taking on some of the biggest local (and not so local) races in the running calendar, Laganside 10k, Belfast Half Marathon, The Great North Run and Berlin Marathon… to name a few!  …

Runner of the month – July 2019

After some heroic performances in June many harriers covered a lot of miles in July as well. Admittedly for most, this came in the form of air miles with the destination being a sunny clime with a beach and a cocktail at the end of it. However, there were a few hardy harriers who kept…

Runner of the Month – June 2019

June was a jam packed month in the racing calendar and as always the Harriers were out in force. From EAMS 6hr Challenges, Comber 10k, Energia 24, ultras in the Mournes, marathons along the coast and the best challenge in the calendar, Mallusk Harriers 24 in 24. Firstly, a massive congratulations to all the 24…

Runner of the Month – May 2019

May was Belfast Marathon month and no surprise that the nominations for ROTM are dominated by those who were taking part.   We now know that those marathoners were actually ultra-marathoners by 500m or so, however our first nomination for May goes to a duo who took on an Ultra of all other proportions.  …

Runner of the Month – April 2019

After a long winter it is always great to get into April with the better weather and extended nights. So it was rather disappointing to get pelted with hail stones in our first training session back at the playing fields in a scene that took me back to our XC race in 2018 (nicknamed ‘In…

Runner of the Month – March 2019

With marathon and half marathon training plans in full swing we have had so many improvements from all members of the club throughout the month of March. Thank you to everyone who voted. 😁 There were a number of individuals nominated this month👏 Kevin Donnelly “Kevin has trained so quietly towards Manchester Marathon achieving a fantastic…

Runner of the Month for February 2019

With XC over for another season and the road races starting, a new committee was voted in and Alan Ladd and Laura Rose were the lucky Harriers who became vice male and female captains. I would like to thank Danny and Tiffany Donaldson for all their help last year in writing the runner of the…

Suzanne Brennan was nominated for rounding up and leading the ladies XC team in to battle in the Athletics NI XC league. Club newcomer Ramunas Stanevicius received several nominations for some excellent PBs, race performances and team XC participation. Definitely a…
