Harriers Shine on the North Coast

The North Coast was the place to be for several runs this week including the Portrush 5 mile race and the Antrim Coast Half Marathon. There was also a good turnout for the local Parkruns as well with a good number taking the opportunity to complete the August Parkrun in Antrim.

Portrush 5 miler
Three men completed the Portrush 5 miler last Friday, enjoying the fine views of the East Strand and White Rocks. Times were excellent and particular congratulations to Gareth on his PB.

Mark Gibson 30.40
Gordon Linton 30.49
