Sat 15 May 2021: Atlas Running – Last One Standing 

Held at Florida Manor Estate, Killinchy, Co Down, this event is not for the faint hearted. Starting at noon, runners have 1 hour to complete the first 4.2 mile loop and be at the start line ready to go again at 1pm, then again at 2pm and so on. Any runner not finished inside the time limit and at the start ready to start again is disqualified. This happens every hour until there is only one runner at the start line, this runner will be the last one standing! This runner must complete a solo loop inside the time limit to be crowned the winner.  The winner was Keith Russell with a new Irish Distance Record of 63 loops = 262.5 miles!

​​​ Sandy McLoughlin was the only NB harrier to take on this challenge and completed an impressive distance of 63 miles over 15 hours.  Well done! 

Prior to this, Atlas Running held a trail run over a distance of 4.186 miles.  This was won by our own Hugo Stewart, also completed by Maya Stewart.  Congratulations!

Sat 15 May 2021: (Not) Parkrun 

One year and nine weeks later we still have no parkrun.  A close second is the ‘not parkrun’ event taken up by 12 harriers this week.  Hopefully not too long before we drop the ‘not!’
