 Following the highly-successful 5000m races held at Magherafelt, hosted by Tafelta Athletics Club, it was North Belfast Harriers’ turn to return the favour. Tafelta and NBH were joined by local club, Mallusk Harriers to make it a night of very competitive racing.

Three races were held to cater for a wide range of abilities ranging from elites to recreational runners. RACE 1: Over 24 mins, RACE 2: 21 – 24 mins and RACE 3: 21 mins and under.

Our thanks go to the competitors from all of the participating clubs, the volunteers who made it possible and to the all-important organisers.

Originally scheduled for last November, the rescheduled Gaithouse Events Montalto 12-hr Challenge took place from 7pm, Saturday 31 July to 7am, Sunday 01 August.

The course itself was 4.6km long with some challenging ascents and descents; the surfaces were mostly trail, with some grassy bits and a small tarmac section round the start/finish area.

Two Harriers took part, both completing a total of 18 laps (81km), Greg McClure finished in 11:37:59 with Gordon Glenn coming home in 11:48:59.
