Club Report – Sunday 10th November 2019

Thanks to the new media officer for covering for me last week. Apologies for my absence, I was away selling a kidney so I could afford to enter a couple of races that I may do in a year or so. Happy times. Taking on the parkruns this week were: Valley parkrun: Neil Campbell (and…

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…

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!  …

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…

Club Report – Sunday 15th September 2019

I didn’t sleep well last night. Bad dreams about flags and measurements. Those of you at the quiz last night will understand my pain. Craic was good and it was probably the first time I’ve had to put myself in the mindset of a migrating swallow to see where I would go in the winter….
