it was a quiet enough week race wise but the Harriers were still represented in several events across the UK.

We Run Wild NI Castle to Castle Trilogy: Race 1: Glenarm to Carrickfergus (50k) – Saturday 26th March

The spectacular course starts at Glenarm Castle in the quaint coastal village of Glenarm, one of Northern Ireland’s oldest estates, built in 1636. From there it takes the runners over the open terrain of the Antrim Hills Way, taking in views that encompass much of Northern Ireland and extending as far as Scotland. The route also takes in forest paths, trails, lanes and rural roads. The finish is at the majestic Carrickfergus Castle, one of the best preserved medieval structures in Northern Ireland and of significant historical importance. Three harriers took part and our own Simon Reeve placed first – well done all!
