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.

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.

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.  …

Club Report – Sunday 16th June 2019

Club Report – Sunday 9th June 2019

You’re all catching up after the quiet one last week. We took over a parkrun, or ran many of them, or road raced, or mountain raced, or raced internationally, or even won some stuff. We’re some pups, aren’t we! Firstly, taking on the parkruns this week were: Valley parkrun: Jonny Smith 23:51PB, Jim Hewitt 27:03,…

Club Report – Sunday 2nd June 2019

Club Report – Sunday 26th May 2019

A (not very) wise man once told me “make hay while the iron is hot” and many of you seem to have taken that slightly confused advice this week with Harriers racing all over the place. Firstly, taking on the parkruns this week were: Valley parkrun: Ciaran Hawkins 24:35, Jim Hewitt 25:35, Gemma Fowler 28:09,…
