Sat 12th Feb 2022:             Last One Standing

The Last One Standing is one of the most gruelling events on the running circuit and not for the feint-hearted. It starts at 12 noon, runners will 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 is the last one standing.

Greg McClure represented the Harriers managing to complete an impressive 18 laps (75.6 miles). Well done Greg.

Sat 12th Feb 2022:             Stormont XC

A very successful day for the runners who represented the North Belfast Harriers in the annual event hosted by the NI Civil Service Athletic Club. The race takes places in the grounds of Stormont Estate and comprises four laps for the men and three laps for the ladies and over 60s men.

Andrew Milligan finished first with a time of 22:19, 10 seconds ahead of his nearest rival, Stephen Connolly of Annadale Striders.

In the team events, the top three athletes’ scores counts, so with team mates Philip Goss and John Black finishing in 6th and 7th positions respectively, this gave North Belfast Harriers Senior Men’s team 14 points, confirming them as the Stormont XC Men’s team winners.

The ladies team managed to secure an impressive third position in the team event with 39 points thanks to the top three NHB finishers: Martsje Hell, Natasha Hewitt and April Clarke.

Well done to all runners, a great day for the Club.
