Runner of the Month – September 2018

Nominations this month were dominated with Belfast Half Marathon success stories and it’s great to see so many Harriers exceeding their goals after working so hard over the last few months and keeping to their training plans. Tony McKeating, Karen McKee, Sharon Dunn and Joe Mathers all received nominations for their efforts, well done! There…

Club Report – Sunday 14th October 2018

I had a whole spiel organised giving off about the rain. I wrote it yesterday. I binned it this morning. Instead I will have to give you my favourite metaphysical poet, John Donne: “No spring nor summer beauty hath such grace as I have seen in one autumnal face” This week’s long run was definitely…

Club Report – Sunday 7th October 2018

Winter is coming, as yer man says, and it was definitely felt by any of us out doing long runs this morning. As the coaches told me “If you feel good during a long run, don’t worry, you’ll get over it.” The vest in the west found yet another Tyrone road race yesterday completing the…

Club Report – Sunday 30th September 2018

Wee bit later this week. Maybe I was too wrapped up in the Ryder Cup or maybe I just had to wait until the end of the Strictly results. Some things are just better left unspoken to be honest. Doing the rounds of the parkruns were: Valley parkrun: Owen Fulton 26:49, Alan “too many questions”…

Club Report – Sunday 23rd September 2018

Firstly, apologies for the late posting. I couldn’t get a full list of half marathon results until today. I think you all had a quiet week of racing just so you could all turn up for the Half yesterday. And why not! But more of that later. 2 members who shirked the Half were Lee…

Club Report – Sunday 16th September 2018

“The lesson of running is to train well, and then have full faith in your training and show the proof in the race”. You may think these fine words were spoken by me after my long run this morning (highly unlikely as I was unable to communicate at that point) or more philosophising from Danny,…

Club Report – Sunday 9th September

Apologies for the no show last week. Sometimes real life gets in the way. Many thanks to my totally adequate young apprentice for stepping in at the last minute. Much appreciated. The week of racing started on Thursday night as two Harriers joined over 750 other runners to take part in the 2nd Citi Inspire…

Club Report – Sunday 2nd September 2018

Runner of the Month – July 2018

As always, July was another month with great representation by the club’s athletes in both training sessions and various race distances. Many have started their marathon and half marathon plans whilst others are putting in the work to knock down those 5k times. Despite the efforts of many, July’s runner of the month was as…

Club Report – Sunday 26th August

Seems as if the heavens have opened today but that hasn’t stopped us hardy Harriers. We usually prefer hard liquor with our water but needs must…. I said I’d start this week by catching up on the Connswater results from last week. Unfortunately their results page requires a name search and cannot be searched by…
