North Down AC Festival of Cross Country – 30th October 2021

A perfect Autumn day in Bangor was the setting for cross country running hosted by North Down AC with a challenging course facing our 9 young Harriers who competed on the day.

In the U15 boys race, massive congratulations to Max Reid who grabbed 3rd place on the podium in a very competitive race.

In the girls Primary School race, three of our Harriers; Cassie Curran, Isla Wiltshire and Clodagh Browne all ran a fantastic race! In a great result for the club, we got 2 girls on the podium with Cassie securing 2nd in a well paced race and in a hugely competitive finish, Isla clinched 3rd place with a strong finish!

Finally in the boys Primary School race, we had 5 Harriers racing; Thomas Coy, Ruarcc Sheridan, Alex Reid, Ethan Wiltshire and Odrhan Browne. All of the boys put in a tremendous effort with some very positive signs of success to come!


Waterworks Junior Parkrun – 31st October 2021

The weather cleared up just in time for the junior parkrun at the Waterworks with 14 junior Harriers running the Halloween parkrun. Great running by all the kids and a big shout out to Pearse getting a new PB taking 44 seconds off his previous PB and with a little help form his big brother who paced him!

For any Harriers wanting to participate in a little extra training on a Sunday, Paddy McAuley and Brian Reid will be running with some of the juniors around the waterworks prior to parkrun to enable some extra endurance training for the kids. If you are interested, then meet up time is 08:55 at the Waterworks. Parents are welcome to run along as well!
