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…

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…

Harrier of the month – October 2018

Another busy month and some great selfless displays of club spirit which is what HOTM is all about.   Two of our most experienced coaches received multiple nominations this month. Some say it is because they brave the rubbish Mallusk weather week in week out to take our training sessions. Some say it is due…

Club Report – Sunday 18th November 2018

Is it only me but as the nights get longer, does the mojo shrink and the gluttony increase? Red wine and chocolate may not be an official Harrier training plan but it seems to be my focus at the minute. Think I need some XC to shake me back into some kind of training. That,…

I should start by reporting the result that came in too late for last week’s report. Elaine Kennedy completed the New York marathon in 5:22:39. A great result as Elaine had to contend with a lot of injury issues during her training. Doing the rounds of the parkruns were: Valley parkrun: Tom Fleming 22:47, Neil…

Club Report – Sunday 28th October 2018

A quiet week this week, until the weekend, as most of you were gearing up for the two big events – the latest XC league event and the Dublin marathon. The headers had their second outing of the XC season on Saturday (Suzanne HOTM Brennan could be heard gurning the whole way from Florida). Taking…

Club Report – Sunday 21st October 2018

Downhill. Buns. It seems these two words are all that is needed to get Harriers out of bed. At least the crowd at this morning’s 10@10 would definitely suggest so. Lee is definitely back on a lot of Santa lists after that one. But there was an awful lot of other running this week so…
