Club Report – Sunday 24th November 2019

I’ve obviously spent most the week reviewing political manifestos but it was another week another muddy field for the MH mudsuckers so I’d better keep off the politics and report on that instead. Taking on the parkruns this week were: Valley parkrun: Paul Skillen 23:57, Yasmin Lynn 29:04, Joanne Milne 30:24, Owen Fulton 51:47 Waterworks…

Club of the Year 2019

Club Report – Sunday 17th November 2019

There’s me thinking I would have a quiet week this week, all done early and curled up in front of the Blackpool ballroom. But no. You lot were flippin’ running everywhere. From the Valley to Vegas. Literally. Taking on the parkruns this week were: Valley parkrun: Ben Davidson 23:41, Noel Bloomfield 25:03, Sharon Dunn 25:53,…

Club Report – Sunday 10th November 2019

Thanks to the new media officer for covering for me last week. Apologies for my absence, I was away selling a kidney so I could afford to enter a couple of races that I may do in a year or so. Happy times. Taking on the parkruns this week were: Valley parkrun: Neil Campbell (and…

Club Report – Sunday 27th October 2019

  A quieter week this week as the hill headers and mudsuckers both took a week off. Unless you’re a junior. They don’t feel the cold like the rest of us. I know its cold when my teeth start chattering. And they’re still in the glass beside the bed. Taking on the parkruns this week…

Runner of the Month – September 2019

As the cold dark training nights begin to set it, September seems like a distance memory already.   September saw many Harriers taking on some of the biggest local (and not so local) races in the running calendar, Laganside 10k, Belfast Half Marathon, The Great North Run and Berlin Marathon… to name a few!  …

Club Report – Sunday 20th October 2019

It’s all hills and muck so it must be the Autumn in Mallusk. The divas of road racing put their shiny shoes away for another winter as the headers and mudsuckers crawl out of the dark to climb hill trails and slog through bogs. Lovely. Late result off the vidiprinter again this week as last…

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…
