NBH Race Report 1 – 7 Apr 2019

Over 70 harriers took part in the annual “race around the river” midweek, some headed west for the half marathon and plenty ran around parkrun locations across Ireland, in England and as far afield as Germany at the weekend.

 

Deep RiverRock Queen’s 5K and 3K Race Around the River and NI and Ulster Championship. (3 April 2019)

A wet and slightly windy Wednesday did not deter the crowds of juniors and seniors from the club, nor did it dampen spirits or performances. Starting at the Annadale Embankment and finishing at the Queen’s Sport PEC car park, the course is always flat and fast. The club enjoyed success at both individual and team level, notably the abundance of course and distance PBs, in addition to the first and third spots in the Men’s Club Championship!

Mark McKinstry ran an excellent time of 1h 8min:41, beaten to the top spot by Gary O’Hanlon after what he described himself as a “tough battle”. (Gary O’Hanlon Running; Facebook) Well done to all harriers on the results.
