Club Report – Sunday 30th September 2018

Wee bit later this week. Maybe I was too wrapped up in the Ryder Cup or maybe I just had to wait until the end of the Strictly results. Some things are just better left unspoken to be honest. Doing the rounds of the parkruns were: Valley parkrun: Owen Fulton 26:49, Alan “too many questions”…

Club Report – Sunday 23rd September 2018

Firstly, apologies for the late posting. I couldn’t get a full list of half marathon results until today. I think you all had a quiet week of racing just so you could all turn up for the Half yesterday. And why not! But more of that later. 2 members who shirked the Half were Lee…

Club Report – Sunday 16th September 2018

“The lesson of running is to train well, and then have full faith in your training and show the proof in the race”. You may think these fine words were spoken by me after my long run this morning (highly unlikely as I was unable to communicate at that point) or more philosophising from Danny,…

Apologies for the no show last week. Sometimes real life gets in the way. Many thanks to my totally adequate young apprentice for stepping in at the last minute. Much appreciated. The week of racing started on Thursday night as two Harriers joined over 750 other runners to take part in the 2nd Citi Inspire…

As always, July was another month with great representation by the club’s athletes in both training sessions and various race distances. Many have started their marathon and half marathon plans whilst others are putting in the work to knock down those 5k times. Despite the efforts of many, July’s runner of the month was as…

Club Report – Sunday 26th August

Seems as if the heavens have opened today but that hasn’t stopped us hardy Harriers. We usually prefer hard liquor with our water but needs must…. I said I’d start this week by catching up on the Connswater results from last week. Unfortunately their results page requires a name search and cannot be searched by…

Club Report – Sunday 19th August

Well, another week, another 7 days closer to retirement. Plenty of running this week so let’s get on with it. Let’s start by updating the results from last weekend’s Dublin Rock’n’Roll Half Marathon: Patricia Curistan 1:45:13, Stephen Semple 1:52:41, Maeve Kennedy 2:01:44, Wes Barker 2:12:48, Heather Barker 2:12:48 Friday night saw quite a few Harriers…

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…
