The arrival of spring was the signal for many Harriers to step up training plans and get in their first races of the season. Amid the excitement of donning the club vest again, a mix of junior and senior members all caught your attention during March.
Here are those nominated for Runner of the Month, and what you had to say about them.
“Absolutely fantastic result at Manchester Marathon.”
“Excellent performance at Manchester marathon.”
“Fidelma’s running this month has made me smile with delight for her. She got a PB at Portrush Parkrun and she followed that up at a super run the Spar Craic. Well done, Fidelma!”
“Alan Kerr always put his full attention into a race without anyone knowing and trains really hard. He consistently achieves his race goals, has been a valuable member of the club for many years, and really enjoys his running.”
“Roisin has been working hard over the past few months, and gives her all in intervals training.”
“The big fella’s ankles and knees are made from chocolate, but he never complains. He keeps training and coaching, keeping others’ morale up.”
“Joe is one of our fab juniors who works hard in training and parkruns. This paid off with an outstanding performance in the Craic 10k which he ran a sub 50min. Absolutely incredible. Well done Joe!”
“Emily has been training so hard and she is getting PB after PB. Such a lovely child and deserves everything she gets. Well done Emily!”
But after knocking on the door for months, one young Harrier’s continued commitment, effort and stellar running finally paid off…
“Continuing to improve all the time. PBs at parkrun and junior parkrun most weeks lately. Represents the club at junior XC as well.”
“Sinead has gone from strength to strength with her running. She has no fear of races and is constantly achieving PBs in parkruns. You go girl!”
“Amazing results at parkrun this year Getting better and better.” Congratulations Sinead on the richly-deserved Runner of the Month
