Meet the Members – Micky McAuley

Q1 When and why did you first take up running? I think it was 2012, a friend got me into a sport called ‘hunting the clean boot’. Instead of a fox, riders on horseback and their bloodhounds chase runners across farmland and countryside. However, it wasn’t until 2015 that I started paying for the privilege…

Meet the Members – Anita Piatek

Q.1 When and why did you first take up running? After my second child in 2014, it seemed like a good way to lose some weight! After my first Couch to 5k run with podcast, I realised I probably needed a better pair of trainers than the ones I still had from doing PE at…

Runner of the Month – February 2020

We are very nearly out of the dark nights and I for one cannot wait – although it hasn’t stopped the hardy Harriers and they continue to plod around the ‘not the bermuda triangle’ of Glengormley or crawl up and down the hills of Mallusk …..some even choose to run 50k from castle to castle!!…

On Feb 29th 2012, construction was completed on the Tokyo Skytree, the tallest tower in the world. On Feb 29th 2020, Ian Simpson and the Harriers took over the Valley parkrun, changed the route and survived.

Club Report – Sunday 23rd February 2020

“I love the feeling of the fresh air on my face and the wind blowing through my hair” So said modern philosopher, and all round deep thinker, Evil Knievel (look him up kids). But he had a motorbike and didn’t live in Mallusk. And should he not have been wearing a helmet? Anyway… Taking on…

Club Report – Sunday 12th January 2020

Apologies for the delay this week but I didn’t think it was right to issue the report without including the junior results from yesterday. Just as important as the seniors. And better in many cases! Back to just one parkrun a week. Thankfully. But we had bigger and better things to think about this week…

Club Report – Sunday 22nd December

Twas the night before Christmas, when all through the house Not a Harrier was stirring, not even Lord Ian on another early morning run; The twin skin Hillys were hung by the chimney with care, In hopes that St. Nicholas soon would be there;   The Harriers were nestled all snug in their beds, While…
