Club Report – Sunday 21st July 2019

Well good morning Harriers. As our weekly Cavillator is on a well deserved holiday you are once again lumbered with me.

Runner of the Month – June 2019

June was a jam packed month in the racing calendar and as always the Harriers were out in force.

Club Report – Sunday 14th July 2019

I’m walking on sunshine and don’t it feel good. So said Katrina and her Waves. I disagree. Both on a general scientific basis (it sounds dangerous to me) and also after my run today. I was practically walking and didn’t feel good at all. Taking on the parkruns this week were: Valley parkrun: Neil McCready…

Harrier of the Month – June 2019

June was a super busy month for the club with many harriers taking part and helping in lots of crazy running adventures. June had us see Energia 24 and 24in24. Special mention to our harrier hero Peter McGarry. Whilst out on his run at the pitches he came across a man who had collapsed and…

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,…
