Runner of the month for November 2018

Karen McKee, Maeve Dunseath, Sarah McCafferty and Stephen Gallagher each received nominations this month for their positive attitudes and progress. Without a doubt it has been a great month for all four with regular training paying off across many distances and terrains, with some even braving the madness of the cross country. As always of…

Junior Harriers of the month for November 2018

Three of our Juniors received the Junior Harrier of the month award for November and the much sought after subway voucher that coach Skillen has been trying to get his hands on for months! Congratulations to Rory and Jasper Brooks, these two brothers are part of the XC team and put in excellent performances, even…

Club Championship 2018

Congratulations to the winners of the Mallusk Harriers club championship, Tiffany Donaldson and Lee O’Boyle. This year’s competition was longer and tougher than ever spanning 10 months. There were 18 races for the ladies and 16 for the men, the majority of which were supporting our local and not so local neighbour clubs’ races. In…

Club Report – Sunday 16th December 2018

Feats of endurance, sore limbs, injuries, heavy breathing, exhaustion to the point of blacking out. But enough of the Xmas dinner, let’s do the running first. A couple of results to tidy up from last week. Alan Ladd completed the Kirkistown Half marathon last Sunday in 1:25:45. What I didn’t realise was that he actually…

Club Report – Sunday 9th December 2018

As Greavsie used to say, it’s a game of two halves this week. Whilst some Harriers hit the roads (and speciality bars) in Lanzarote, others hit the mud in Cookstown. Who had the most fun is open to debate! Doing the rounds of the parkruns were: Valley parkrun: Ciaran Hawkins 23:43, Tina Steele 26:51, Deborah…

Club Report – Sunday 2nd December 2018

Darker nights and colder weather mean a quieter racing calendar at this time of year. Some of us are focusing more on our training for the Xmas parties than the 5ks and 10ks. Doing the rounds of the parkruns were: Valley parkrun: Ramunas Stanevicius 20:30, Neil McCready 22:15PB, Alan Erwin 23:12, Neil Campbell 23:34, Joe…

Club Report – Sunday 25th November 2018

Let’s start with some great results that came in too late last week. Lee O’Boyle and Alan Ladd both competed in the latest Kirkistown Half Marathon. They obviously competed fairly well as they finished first and second respectively, Lee in 1:20:40PB and Alan in 1:23:38PB. The Harriers’ first double podium result? Doing the rounds of…

Harrier of the month – October 2018

Another busy month and some great selfless displays of club spirit which is what HOTM is all about.   Two of our most experienced coaches received multiple nominations this month. Some say it is because they brave the rubbish Mallusk weather week in week out to take our training sessions. Some say it is due…

Club Report – Sunday 18th November 2018

Is it only me but as the nights get longer, does the mojo shrink and the gluttony increase? Red wine and chocolate may not be an official Harrier training plan but it seems to be my focus at the minute. Think I need some XC to shake me back into some kind of training. That,…

Club Report – Sunday 11th November 2018

I should start by reporting the result that came in too late for last week’s report. Elaine Kennedy completed the New York marathon in 5:22:39. A great result as Elaine had to contend with a lot of injury issues during her training. Doing the rounds of the parkruns were: Valley parkrun: Tom Fleming 22:47, Neil…
