Slowly but surely, fixtures are beginning to return albeit with strict social-distancing measures in place.
Sat 26th Sept Shane’s Castle
ChampionChip Ireland and Forestside have teamed up with Athletics NI to organise a unique series of timed running events to help runners of all standards keep their edge during the lockdown. Shane’s Castle is the second of three.
The fixtures included 5k, 10k, Half Marathon and Full Marathon.
North Belfast Harriers was represented by five runners competing in three events, with Mark McAvoy taking second place in the Half Marathon despite taking a fall during the race. Well done, and get well soon Mark.
5k [90 runners]
10k [119 runners]
Half Marathon [193 runners]
Sun 27th Sept (Not) PARKRUNS
The good folk at Parkrun have introduced the (not) Parkrun.
For those unfamiliar with (not) parkrun:
What is (not)parkrun? Well, it’s not parkrun. It’s not about walking, jogging, or running at your regular parkrun location, and definitely not necessarily doing so on a Saturday morning.
(not)parkrun is an opportunity for parkrunners to submit a 5k walk, jog, or run, on a route of your choosing, wherever you are in the world and following appropriate guidelines for physical activity wherever you’re based.
It works a bit like the parkrun ‘Freedom run’ – an opportunity for you to self-declare the date and time of a walk, jog or run and at the same time represent your home parkrun. You can record up to one activity per day, with your fastest time each week included in a weekly results table.
There’s no need to re-register to take part in (not)parkrun, your existing parkrun profile will allow you to log and view your (not)parkruns.
Seven Harriers took part in the (Not) Parkrun this week.
