Craigavon Lakes 3/4 Marathon (Sunday 6 October)

Kicking off at 8.30am on Sunday, the 3/4 marathon is organised bi-annually as a training run for those taking on Dublin and Belfast full distances 3 weeks before the “main race.” Conditions were good, albeit wet and hilly in parts, for the 6-loop course around the lakes. Paddy McAuley was the only harrier to take part and completed the 20-mile distance in 2.23:41. Congratulations.

NI & Ulster Road Relay Championship (Sunday 6 October)

Undoubtedly this was the main event of the week. NBH had representation from the Primary Schools race right through to the ladies and men’s seniors and masters. We are delighted to report that there were 3 first place finishes out of the 4 main races and two new course records set by North Belfast Harriers! It was a great day for the club, both in terms of success and camaraderie.

1st Place Men’s Masters and Course Record Breakers – Mark McKinstry, Gareth Lyons, Kent Swann and Conor Curran

1st Place Men’s Seniors and Course Record Breakers – Mark McKinstry, Andrew Milligan, Conán McCaughey and John Black

Galway Half Marathon (Sunday 6 October)

The Half Marathon is split into three laps, one short lap, followed by two full laps. It starts at the Claddagh in the city, takes in the promenade, goes through the heart of Salthill, turns down toward the sea before heading back into the county capital. Described as a “very flat and fast course” and perfect for PB attempts. One Harrier is known to have taken part, achieving the sub 2hour. Well done.
