Queens 5k /3k

The Queens 5k / 3k event was held on Wednesday 29th March 2017 and was attended by thousands of athletes and spectators for the annual  ‘Race Round the River’, which also doubled up as the NI & Ulster 5k (Road) Championships.

Despite numerous quality performances and personal bests, it was Conor Bradley (City of Derry AC) and Kerry O’Flaherty (Newcastle AC) who secured victory and ultimately the headlines.

The flat and fast 5k course started on the Annadale Embankment and covered two and three quarter laps (each lap measures approximately 1.8k), finishing outside Queen’s on the Stranmillis Embankment.

North Belfast Harriers had a very successfully evening with the men’s team winning both gold and silver in the Northern Ireland Championships!!!!

This event was highly attended by North Belfast Harriers and was a successful evening for the club. Well done to all!
