Couch to 5k Programme


During the summer months, Mallusk Harriers hold an annual Couch to 5k scheme, to encourage and support members of the community to participate in sport.  A 9 week program that has been successful for many years, designed to get just about anyone from the couch to running 5 kilometres in those 9 weeks.


With the help of the coaching team at Mallusk Harriers and the many members, you can be assured that you will get the support and encouragement that you need to have success when you cross that finish line on graduation day.



Graduation day is held at the Valley Parkrun.


In true Mallusk Harrier style, training takes place rain, hail or shine on Tuesday and Thursdays

  • Tuesday, Playing Fields, Park Road Mallusk 7:30pm to 8:15pm

  • Thursday, Playing Fields, Park Road Mallusk 7:30pm to 8:15pm


Graduation Day will be at the Valley Parkrun on the last Saturday of the program.  To take part you must register for Parkrun.  This is a quick and easy process and it is free.  Please remember to bring your barcode with you that you get from your registration with parkrun  – No Barcode No Time!
