Weekly report

It wasn’t exactly Cheltenham races on Bank Holiday Monday in Belfast, neither colts nor fillies in sight (there was plenty of other fancy dress out there), but the Mallusk Harriers ladies certainly had their hats on and took top honours with some absolutely smashing times at the 35th Belfast City Marathon; the lads also put…

A True Inspiration

This week’s running began with the annual Queens’s 5K Race around the River, allowing for 19 Mallusk Harriers to test their mettle on the course. A total of 12 out of 19 runners returned with personal bests after pushing right to the line, on a fine spring evening. The ball started rolling with Danny Donaldson…

Pure and simple every time

Pure and simple every time… Apologies folks for the lack of reports over the last few weeks, I have tried my upmost best to keep this report as short as possible and to include as many runs as possible, therefore please accept my apologies if this seems a little bland to say the least… here…

More than a running club….

Hear ye

Normal Saturday running usually paves the way for the weekly parkrun events, although for 15 Mallusk Harriers the lure of the scenic village of Carlingford to take on the half marathon and 10k road race on the Cooley Peninsula was too great to turn down. It may have been extremely hard to beat the stunning…

Quickly at a glance

Quickly at a glance. Just the four parkrun events taken on by 22 of the Harriers this weekend at Craigavon, Valley, Antrim and the Waterworks. Even though there were some cracking runs from our very own Mallusk Harriers, run of the day can only go to that of Jim Clinton from North Belfast Harriers, 250…

As Time Goes By….

As time goes by… As the weeks roll on Mr Davidson may have felt relieved that I had missed out on the report, unfortunately Alex I have just been slow in helping bodies out of the ditch in the valley parkrun. Saturday 30th January saw Mallusk Harriers take first and second spot at the Valley…

Short and sweet….

Short and sweet… Just the four parkrun events ventured to by the Harriers, from home turf at the Valley to Waterworks, Antrim and across the sea to Stretford parkrun event in Manchester. David Mullan decided to take on the other 443 runners at the Stretford run before heading off to what is known as one…

Caution with a bit of warning…

Previously… Saturday 9th January and all roads lead to the Valley parkrun as Alex Davidson brushed off the cobwebs and joined the Mallusk Harriers’ milestone 100 club. A hefty squad of club members took to the course to run alongside him and to say thank you to Alex, for so many thankless tasks he has…
