Club Report – Sunday 15th July 2018

Strange thing happened today, weird watery stuff started falling from the sky. I’ll have to get one of the young ‘uns to Google it for me. Let’s start by catching up on a result that came in too late for last week’s report. 3 Harriers took on the Inis Bo Finne 5k in Donegal last…

Harrier of the Month – June 2018

Well done everyone, another great display of Harrier team spirit on show this month, especially during the support of the Coast Road Marathon and Run Newtownabbey C25K programme. Many Harriers stepped up and went the extra mile for their fellow club (and non-club) members in June, you all deserve a round of applause for your…

Club Report – Sunday 8th July 2018

On Saturday morning, it was one of the toughest endurance events most of us have ever faced. For the graduates of the C25k program it was not what they had trained for, not what they had expected. Children cried, dogs howled. It was brutal. But then Alex finished his speech (one of them at least)…

Club Report – Sunday 1st July 2018

Sanity has returned this week. Mark Smith is back on a podium, the McCaffertys are back at 10@10 and several Harriers have a hangover today. Everything is right with the world again. Looked as if everyone was saving themselves for a big weekend effort as there were no Harriers involved in any midweek races. (Or…

Club Report – Sunday 24th June 2018

Obviously, the big news of the Harrier week is that the McCaffertys missed a 10@10. The appropriate authorities have been informed. But, as we await news of their fate, onto the running…. Midweek racing this week focused on Lisburn as many Harriers took on either the 10k or Half Marathon distance: 10k: Martin O’Neill 42:41,…

Club Report – Sunday 17th June 2018

A strange week for your favourite results report as Mark Smith did not have any podium finishes. One podium finish that did happen though was Club Captain Suzanne Brennan achieving second place in the Newforge 10k on Wednesday night in 51:50. Rumours that Suzanne is attempting to legally change her name to Lady Mark Brennan…

Club Report – Sunday 10th June 2018

I need to start this week by catching up with a few results that came in too late for last Sunday’s report. Let’s not forget that one of our juniors was at the latest Lagan Valley Firmus Fab 5 meeting back on May 31st: U13 Boys 75m Adam McCann 16:19 (winner) McCann the man! U13…

Club Report – Sunday 3rd June 2018

A quieter mid-week this week but still plenty of running in the sun over the weekend: However, firstly just to mention Nuala Muldoon, 39:19 and Mairead O’Hare, 59:19 who both represented the club at at last week’s Marconi Run in Ballycastle. Friday evening started as Mark Smith continued his successful season with yet another podium…

Club Report – Sunday 27th May 2018

Plenty of running this week, both mid-week and over the weekend. Wednesday evening was the Bann 10k. Our only entrant was Mark Smith who gained yet another podium finish coming home third in 35:41. Well done (again) Mark! However, this effort was eclipsed by newbie Mark McIlroy who won the dad’s race at his son’s…
