Club Report – Sunday 30th June 2019

Only really one story in town this week but let’s get back to that. To catch up from last week, we now have the full Energia 24 results. Running as an individual, Craig Mills completed 101.65 miles. Amazing. We also had 2 relay teams competing. The Marathon Queens (Joanne Milne, Sharon Dunn, Leeanne Skillen &…

Club Report – Sunday 23rd June 2019

June is bustin’ out all over. So said Rodgers & Hammerstein (in that musical with the silly song about walking alone) but they obviously hadn’t spent much time in Mallusk. In fact, the sun only came out to annoy the headers in Victoria park this weekend. This reporter thanks those Harriers who managed to cover…

Runner of the Month – May 2019

May was Belfast Marathon month and no surprise that the nominations for ROTM are dominated by those who were taking part.   We now know that those marathoners were actually ultra-marathoners by 500m or so, however our first nomination for May goes to a duo who took on an Ultra of all other proportions.  …

Club Report – Sunday 16th June 2019

It’s Father’s Day! The day where we all renew our annual stocks of pants and socks. Where we pretend it really is the best meal we’ve ever had. When what we really want is what made us fathers in the first place…… Firstly, taking on the parkruns this week were: Valley parkrun: Ramunas Stanevicius 19:52,…

Harrier of the Month – May 2019

May has been a busy month for all the harriers. We have seen many events including Belfast Marathon and the beginning of our C25k programme. A huge thank you to all the club members you came out to support at these events. Without you these wouldn’t be as successful or as memorable 💕 There have been…

Club Report – Sunday 9th June 2019

You’re all catching up after the quiet one last week. We took over a parkrun, or ran many of them, or road raced, or mountain raced, or raced internationally, or even won some stuff. We’re some pups, aren’t we! Firstly, taking on the parkruns this week were: Valley parkrun: Jonny Smith 23:51PB, Jim Hewitt 27:03,…

Club Report – Sunday 2nd June 2019

A quieter week this week as we move into June, possibly named after Juno, Roman goddess of marriage but more importantly the month of 24 in 24. Firstly, taking on the parkruns this week were: Valley parkrun: Neil Campbell 21:46, Stephen Semple 24:11, Noel Bloomfield 24:39, Eamonn Donaghy 25:00, Alan Erwin 28:11, Roisin Brooks 28:59,…

Club Report – Sunday 26th May 2019

A (not very) wise man once told me “make hay while the iron is hot” and many of you seem to have taken that slightly confused advice this week with Harriers racing all over the place. Firstly, taking on the parkruns this week were: Valley parkrun: Ciaran Hawkins 24:35, Jim Hewitt 25:35, Gemma Fowler 28:09,…

Club Report – Sunday 19th May 2019

A quieter week for running this week. Maybe you were all psyching yourselves up for the GoT finale instead. Maybe you were too busy planning your party for the annual unmissable train wreck that is the Eurovision “Song” Contest. (Madonna – please stop. Now. Thanks) Firstly, taking on the parkruns this week were: Valley parkrun:…

Harrier of the Month – April 2019

Connemara, London and Belfast marathons have been and gone and let’s hope with the weather forecast for this week that the rain and hailstones are done and dusted too. Like the Runner of the month report there was a few nominations for May that will be carried over to next month. A number of harriers…
