Club Report – Sunday 12th August

Well, we all know what the big event on the local running calendar was this week. Yup, the Brennan 5k crown moved back to the female side of the house. And we had the club race too. But earlier in the week, on Wednesday evening, a couple of Harriers took on the Edwin May Coleraine 5…

Abba music, ripped jeans, cassette tapes, Tiger Woods, Dr Legg, The Artic Monkeys. Yes, these have all made a comeback in recent times and now it’s my turn! Many thanks to work experience boy for his efforts in my absence. He cried, he gurned, but he got the job done. We salute him. But in…

Club Report – Sunday 15th July 2018

Strange thing happened today, weird watery stuff started falling from the sky. I’ll have to get one of the young ‘uns to Google it for me. Let’s start by catching up on a result that came in too late for last week’s report. 3 Harriers took on the Inis Bo Finne 5k in Donegal last…

Well done everyone, another great display of Harrier team spirit on show this month, especially during the support of the Coast Road Marathon and Run Newtownabbey C25K programme.

Club Report – Sunday 8th July 2018

On Saturday morning, it was one of the toughest endurance events most of us have ever faced. For the graduates of the C25k program it was not what they had trained for, not what they had expected. Children cried, dogs howled. It was brutal. But then Alex finished his speech (one of them at least)…

Club Report – Sunday 1st July 2018

Sanity has returned this week. Mark Smith is back on a podium, the McCaffertys are back at 10@10 and several Harriers have a hangover today. Everything is right with the world again. Looked as if everyone was saving themselves for a big weekend effort as there were no Harriers involved in any midweek races. (Or…
