Club Report – Sunday 13th October 2019

What else can be said about the Kipchoge run. History made. A genuine lump in the throat, tear in the eye moment, even for a miserable git like me. Just over 8 parkruns in a row at 14:10 pace. But how many times has he volunteered? Late result off the vidiprinter, Dune Half Marathon from…

Club Report – Sunday 6th October 2019

Bit tired today. I was up late watching Scullion in the marathon last night and was busy being very impressed by Calum Hawkins. And hadn’t really recovered from Mageean’s PB earlier. All great stuff. It would almost inspire you to stick the trainers on and get out there. Almost. Late result off the vidiprinter, the…

Club Report – Sunday 29th September 2019

A busy week for the Harriers this week, on the road, over the hills, internationally. Plenty of running. And Utd haven’t even got beaten this weekend. Yet. Not mentioning rugby any more. Taking on the parkruns this week were: Valley parkrun: Patrick Hughes 24:51, Own Fulton 25:59, Alan Erwin 27:35, Sharon Dunn 29:06, Lee-Anne Hutchinson…

Club Report – Sunday 22nd September 2019

On Sunday, it was raining outside, Utd took another tanking on live tv, people kept talking about something called rugby. Not my favourite day to be honest. But I put my family sized trifle down long enough to read the Half Marathon results achieved by the Harriers and that cheered me up. A bit. More…

Club Report – Sunday 15th September 2019

I didn’t sleep well last night. Bad dreams about flags and measurements. Those of you at the quiz last night will understand my pain. Craic was good and it was probably the first time I’ve had to put myself in the mindset of a migrating swallow to see where I would go in the winter….

Club Report – Sunday 8th September 2019

I thought you would have had no time for running this week, what with all the revision required for the big quiz on Saturday night. I know I’ve spent hours trying to work out how to hide my phone up my sleeve and still be able to access Google. More late results off the vidiprinter…

Club Report – Sunday 1st September 2019

September. Autumn, “The year’s last, loveliest smile” as William Cullen Bryant described it. The time of falling leaves, falling temperatures and pictures of uniformed kids in front of doors. The time when the hopes of Utd fans have already turned to next season… One late result on the vidiprinter from last week as Jonathan Carter…

Club Report – Sunday 25th August 2019

Obviously, my remark last week about the weather had the intended result and the gods have finally remembered it actually August for a while yet. So, like wasps to my pint glass, you all headed to the roads for some racing. Before it rains again. First of all, a couple of late results from last…

Harrier of the month – July 2019

As 24 in 24 came to a close, it left July to prep for the best road race in the land. While some Harriers were in full force with the organisation, others were sitting back and relaxing with a beer or ten in sunny holiday destinations. Paul Skillen was nominated for his efforts and encouragement…

Runner of the month – July 2019

After some heroic performances in June many harriers covered a lot of miles in July as well. Admittedly for most, this came in the form of air miles with the destination being a sunny clime with a beach and a cocktail at the end of it. However, there were a few hardy harriers who kept…
