Cross Country – NI & Ulster Uneven Age Groups & Bobby Rea Sunday 9th November
A group of hardy Harriers made their way to the Billy Neill Centre of Excellence on what must have been one of the wettest days of the year. With the under 18 races already underway the course was a cross between a field and a swamp by the time they arrived. The spikes were pulled on and the Harriers picked up maximum points for both men’s and women’s teams. The men came in 3rd place and the women 8th. The updated league results were not available at the time of writing the report. Well done to everyone who ran and a special mention to Mark McKinstry who was selected to represent Northern Ireland at this race.
