NBH Weekly report 16th – 22nd December

At a time of the year where hill sessions and tempo can take a back seat to Christmas parties and mince pies the Harriers were still represented at various events across the country.

EAMS Black Eye Friday – Friday 20th December

Starting at Carrickfergus Castle, the marathon and half marathon route took runners via Carrickfergus marina, the old Belfast Road and the Loughshore path as far as Gideon’s Green, before turning to head back to Carrickfergus, where the half marathon runners finished while the marathon runners set out to complete the loop again.

Running conditions were pretty good despite some large puddles on the Loughshore path, with low winds and cool temperatures. Two NBH athletes competed in the marathon, with Greg McClure running 3:36:54 and Thomas McKinstry coming home in 4:26:20 – well done guys!
