Club Report: Sunday 4th February 2018

The sun was out this morning, but so was the black ice, so well done to those skaters who managed to safely complete their long runs today. It’s been a busy weekend for all you Harriers so let’s get on with it. Valley parkrun: Brendan McGeown 23:23, Yasmin Lynn 26:59 PB, Terry McIvor 27:00 (well…

Club Report: Sunday 28th January 2018

Well, another week, another 7 days filled with overindulgence and guilt. Xmas is so last year and the Spring target races are galloping towards us much faster than I’ll ever go. But we are Harriers and are undaunted. The huge turnouts at recent Tuesday night training sessions at BRA pitches proves it. Well done to…

Club Report: Sunday 21st January 2018

Another week where my lunch hours were mainly spent praying for that post on Facebook and Team App that said training was cancelled. Alan Ladd, you are the man! Yes, my mojo is currently still on winter vacation in the Caribbean. Hopefully it will be back in time for Larne. Results are a lot quieter…

Club Report: Sunday 14th January 2018

This week, my spirits lifted, my heart soared and I felt as if I had achieved nirvana. Nah, only kidding. The weather was dismal, the resolutions are all broken, the extra weight has not shifted and its still two weeks to payday. But on to the results… Valley parkrun: Neil Campbell 21:01, David Esler 26:35,…

Club Report: Sunday 7th January 2018

I was going to start by letting you know my new year’s resolution but, as I’m already perfect, I don’t need to make any. But good luck with yours. Maybe its to get faster, whilst still filling yourself with alcohol and cake. But on to the results… Race Over The Glens: Held back on New…

Club Report: Monday 1st January 2018

Folks, with so much going on, your weekly news report is a long one so you might as well grab a cuppa now. Your humble reporter made the brave decision yesterday to delay the report so that all the NYD parkruns could be included. Why, oh why? Yesterday, I was a year younger, less ill…

Club Report: Sunday 24th December 2017

Well, twas the night before Christmas, when all through the house not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse. Mainly because we were all watching Die Hard and eating Quality Street. Hopefully you have recovered from Nuala’s Santa Run or the Grew’s mulled wine or whatever running you managed this weekend. Despite what you…

Club Report: Sunday 17th December 2017

“The first fall of snow is not only an event, it is a magical event. You go to bed in one kind of a world and wake up in another quite different, and if this is not enchantment, where is it to be found?” “Snow and ice. Do one.” The more cultured Harriers (i.e. The…

Club Report: Sunday 10th December 2017

Oh, the weather outside is frightful, but the fire is so delightful. And since we’ve no place to go, let it snow, let it snow, let it snow! Apologies for the late post but I’ve just peeked out of the igloo I’ve been living in since Friday. Doesn’t seem I’ve missed much though. The “celebrity”…

Club Report: Sunday 3rd December 2017

This week was dominated by a great performance from one of the club’s brightest stars. After last week’s false start, Jamie Campbell finally got to hit the tarmac at today’s Waterworks junior parkrun. Jamie was one of 5 Mallusk juniors running this morning: Waterworks junior parkrun: Joseph Eager (home in a very impressive 5th place)…
