Club Kit Order

I am putting together the club kit order.  After talking to members of the club I propose ordering the following:

  • Vests (£16)
  • Long Sleeve Tees (see below) (£16)
  • Long Leg Shorts (more details below) (£16)
  • Skull Cap (Blue with yellow logo) (£6)
  • Hoodies (see below) (£19)

If you want any of the items above can you send me a text or get in touch through Facebook; please include the item type, size and quantity.

If you would like to see any other items ordered get in touch.

Hoodies

I know that there was talk of blue hoodies printed with yellow logo being OTT.  There is no minimum order on hoodies.  I am ordering a blue one.  If you would like one in blue or a different colour let me know.  We can always order more in the future if required.

Long Sleeve Tees

I gather the yellow set of tees were a mistake.  I actually quite like them.  For this order I am assuming we wish to revert to tees the same colour as the vests.  This can be changed if there is demand for yellow ones, or we can order both.

Long Leg Shorts

The long leg shorts are made from a ‘lightweight wickable microfibre’ with a zipped back pocket.  I am modelling the sample pair below.  They seem good enough for racing without being too indecent.  I have sent a question to the supplier to see if they only come in plain blue, or will they be printed / striped.

Note: The sample are a medium and seem to fit my 32 inch waist quite well.

Snow kissed run in the Mournes

A couple of the Mourne Runners and our friends from Lagan Valley took to the snow kissed hills this fine Saturday morning.  After a wet looking start the conditions were good to go and the team had a good run over Donard and down the grassy side of Commedagh.

Happy New Year 2014

There was a good turnout this morning for the traditional New Years day run up Donard.  The weather gods were not kind and the team were subjected to strong winds, hail, snow and a generous serving of rain.  Thankfully Mike had brought his mince pie machine and was serving up the brews in the car park at the finish.  Roll on 2014.

Mourne Runner Festive Handicap 2013

Team Mourne assembled in Rostrevor for the annual club handicap.  In mild conditions nine elite athletes toed the line to take on the Slieve Martin H&D route.  Before the start defending champion David Bell was savouring his last moments as the best runner in the club; he had a lot to contend with though as there were eight other hungry runners keen to get stuck into Beverley Herron’s mince pies.

After some fast running and a couple of bad route choices from those in front of him Sam Herron blazed through to take the victory.  As the champ says ‘it’s all about the mountain craft’.  The times and results can be seen below.  The top three men on the day were:

  1. Sam Herron
  2. Laurence Dorman
  3. Richard Bell
