But the Wicklow Way Ultra Marathon (51km) went ahead, with the Harriers’ Marty Rea braving the tough conditions to finish fifth in 4:58:08. The course, which traversed the Wicklow Mountains, featured an overall climb of nearly 2000 metres and was mucky and snowy.
Two Harriers were in action at the relatively snow-free City Parkrun in Craigavon, where Paul Blaney (16.54) and Alan Ritchie (18.21) claimed the top two positions.
Let’s hope that the roads, trails and parks thaw out in the coming days!
