North Belfast Harriers welcomed yet more opportunities to race this week demonstrating their lockdown training regimes are certainly paying off.  Such participation and performances are not indicative of any ‘holiday mode’ this week.

Co Down 5k and NI 5K Championships

On Friday evening, a team of twenty North Belfast Harriers travelled to Downpatrick to run the “flat, fast PB 5km course in Downpatrick Town Centre.” (Co Down 5k Championship FB page.)  Three races were scheduled for the sub 17mins, 17 – 22 and the 22+ categories.  Congratulations to all those who achieved PBs including (but not exclusively) Gavin McCaffrey (MJ category winner) and April Clarke. Well done to Nat Glenn who claimed the Vet 55 category too with his time of 17.11 and 7th overall in the B race – a great first race back this year.  Fantastic running from all ‘stags.’

NBH Afternoon of Middle Distance (10 July)

North Belfast Harriers hosted a brilliant day of middle distance running at Mary Peters Track in Belfast on Saturday afternoon.  It was attended by elites from across the country including Finn Valley AC, Letterkenny AC, Clonliffe Harriers, Raheny Shamrocks and those closer to home, Willowfield Harriers, City of Lisburn AC and Orangegrove AC, to name a few.  Described as a ‘flawless meet thoroughly enjoyed by athletes and coaches’ (NBHAC Twitter), the team should be very proud, as should the athletes who performed at the highest standards.  Results for NBH club members listed below.
