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 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,…

Club Report – Sunday 19th May 2019

A quieter week for running this week. Maybe you were all psyching yourselves up for the GoT finale instead. Maybe you were too busy planning your party for the annual unmissable train wreck that is the Eurovision “Song” Contest. (Madonna – please stop. Now. Thanks) Firstly, taking on the parkruns this week were: Valley parkrun:…

Harrier of the Month – April 2019

Connemara, London and Belfast marathons have been and gone and let’s hope with the weather forecast for this week that the rain and hailstones are done and dusted too. Like the Runner of the month report there was a few nominations for May that will be carried over to next month. A number of harriers…

Club Report – Sunday 12th May 2019

Some Harriers spent the week recovering from last Sunday’s marathon. Others hit the racetrack again. Some wound down with a 55 mile ultra. Takes all sorts I suppose.

Runner of the Month – April 2019

After a long winter it is always great to get into April with the better weather and extended nights. So it was rather disappointing to get pelted with hail stones in our first training session back at the playing fields in a scene that took me back to our XC race in 2018 (nicknamed ‘In…

Club Report – Sunday 28th April 2019

“Dull would he be of soul who could pass by a sight so touching in its majesty” “If, when, why, what, how much have you got? Have you got it, do you get it, if so, how often? And which do you choose, a hard or soft option?” William Wordsworth and The Pet Shop Boys…

Club Report – Sunday 21st April 2019

Happy Easter to all you Harriers, hope the bunny brought you plenty of chocolate. The Cavillator has took his well earned break so you’re stuck with work experience boy this week. Glad there is not much to report with very little racing this week, as everyone has their taps aff, Benny McGeown is regularly seen…
