North Belfast Harriers Race Report w/e 29th April 2018
A quieter week for the Harriers as many are either recovering from the Virgin London Marathon or preparing for the upcoming Deep RiverRock Belfast City Marathon.
Thurs 26th April: Hill and Dale 2018 Series: Race 3 – Slieve Martin.
Two hundred and seventy-four runners took part in the third of a series of 10 Hill and Dale races organised by Newcastle AC. Starting at Kibroney Forest, Rostrevor, the route took the runners up 460m to Slieve Martin via Slieve Meen. There was no time to take in the view as the runners made their way down through Oak Wood back to Kilbroney.
