Hear ye

Normal Saturday running usually paves the way for the weekly parkrun events, although for 15 Mallusk Harriers the lure of the scenic village of Carlingford to take on the half marathon and 10k road race on the Cooley Peninsula was too great to turn down. It may have been extremely hard to beat the stunning…

Stumped

Stumped… Rewinding to the week gone by, not that one the other one… A quick overview for the weekend of 20/02/2016, the club attended 5 parkruns at the Valley, Waterworks, Victoria, Carrickfergus and Antrim… Waterworks: Danny Donaldson 19:32, David & Catherine Mullan 29:09, Tiffany McAllister 36:09, Joanne Haddock 36:31. Antrim: Tom Wylie 23:09, Deborah Ewing…

Quickly at a glance

Quickly at a glance. Just the four parkrun events taken on by 22 of the Harriers this weekend at Craigavon, Valley, Antrim and the Waterworks. Even though there were some cracking runs from our very own Mallusk Harriers, run of the day can only go to that of Jim Clinton from North Belfast Harriers, 250…

As Time Goes By….

As time goes by… As the weeks roll on Mr Davidson may have felt relieved that I had missed out on the report, unfortunately Alex I have just been slow in helping bodies out of the ditch in the valley parkrun. Saturday 30th January saw Mallusk Harriers take first and second spot at the Valley…

Short and sweet….

Short and sweet… Just the four parkrun events ventured to by the Harriers, from home turf at the Valley to Waterworks, Antrim and across the sea to Stretford parkrun event in Manchester. David Mullan decided to take on the other 443 runners at the Stretford run before heading off to what is known as one…

Caution with a bit of warning…

Previously… Saturday 9th January and all roads lead to the Valley parkrun as Alex Davidson brushed off the cobwebs and joined the Mallusk Harriers’ milestone 100 club. A hefty squad of club members took to the course to run alongside him and to say thank you to Alex, for so many thankless tasks he has…

Clocking up the miles….

Festive fun and frolics… As the holidays have now subsided, time to draw breath and get back down to business to exercise those demons of the dreaded mince pies and mulled wine. Our reports begin with the old Belfast saying ‘Double Dunter’ with opportunity to complete two parkruns in two days with the annual Christmas…

Snow joke

Snow joke being snowed under without a flake in sight…Well it has been a few weeks, totally slaughtered with work and on all other fronts and indeed getting ready for good old St Nick… Starting back a few weeks, a race that we can revisit, is the Born2Run 10k forest trail event at Loughgall, although…

We’re all superheroes…

We’re all super heroes… There is something magical about running in the rain and blustery conditions of the good old Irish weather. It always seems to take me back 10 or 15 years playing football around Mallusk playing fields (what…? alright, maybe 25+ years previously), 22 under 11 kids chasing a ball in the wind…

Champagne Supernova

You got to roll with it… This week’s running activities for the Mallusk Harriers took place at Stormont with the annual Run in the Dark 5k and 10k runs. The club had 6 folk up the hill to lay down the law, even Mick’s headband was traded in for a happy Harriers hat to help…
