Club Report – Sunday 30th December 2018

Too many selection boxes and too many germs in Chateau Cavillator and too many races to report. So it’s less talk and more action this week. As promised last week, here’s the Harrier results from the Leg It Hazelbank 5 Mile Xmas Run on 23rd. Seems a long time ago now! Alan Ladd 30:08PB, Joe…

Club Report – Sunday 23rd December 2018

Yes folks, it that time of year again. The time when just three little words can strike fear into the bravest – “some assembly required”. The time when nothing says Xmas like queueing for an overpriced German sausage outside City Hall. My club mates have come round to our house every year for the last…

Harrier of the month November 2018

November has been and gone in the blink of an eye and many Harriers are getting into the festive spirit, some more than others as we seen from hungover XC. Some Harriers stood out again in November, including Louise Ladd who was nominated for stepping up and being part of a fantastic ladies XC team,…

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!

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…
