Northwest Indoor Games

Thirteen of our Track & Field athletes competed in the fifth Northwest Indoor Games held in AIT on Friday, December 27. We had athletes in sprints, 400s, hurdles, shot putt, long jump and high jump. All had super performances and pb’s in this early season competition. Well done to all athletes and keep up the great work, no doubt the dividends will pay off in the new season.

Kilbeggan 6K

Congratulations Pauric Ennis who was the clear winner of the Kilbeggan 6K race held on St. Stephen’s Day. Pauric led over 350 runners and walkers from the gun and posted a super time of 19.34 minutes. Nadine Donegan was first lady. Well done to the large contingent from the club who supported this charity run.

Ardagh 10 Mile Road Race

Pauric Ennis took a podium finish yet again following another super run in Ardagh on Saturday, December 28. He finished the hilly 10 miles in 2 nd place in 53.51. Teammates Eddie Gary was 9th in 58.26 and Leslie Buckley was 18th in 65.42. Great running lads.

Offaly Hospice Mile

There was a fantastic turn out on Christmas morning for the inaugural Offaly Hospice Mile Run co- hosted by Tullamore Harriers. We would like to thank each and every one of you who came along to support this fantastic charity which someday might benefit each and every one of us.

Tullamore Harriers Couch to 5K 2020

The end of 2019 is drawing to a close and now is the time we all make New Year's resolutions. Why not sign up for the Tullamore Harriers C25K programme and don't let the opportunity pass you by. Starting on Monday, January 6 and each continuing each Monday and Wednesday at 6.30pm for 10 weeks, at a cost of €25 that is only €1 per session so it is
excellent value for money. The programme is for all levels of fitness from total beginners to those with some level of fitness. The sessions usually involve 40 to 50 minutes of exercise including warm-up and cool down. All sessions are supervised by Tullamore Harriers members and you will be advised and supported every step of the way. For your convenience, we have an online option this year where you can register in advance and save time on the first night of the programme. Pre-register www.futureticketing.ie/c/tullamore-harriers. We will have registration on the night also from 6pm. See you soon!
