The Albertville Harriers 5 Mile Road Race took place on Saturday 2nd of March at the Duncrue Industrial Estate. The weather was kind to us as it stayed dry and the wind was reasonably light making conditions conducive for fast running. We had a good field of 120 runners toeing the line for what has become the opening road race of the season. We decided to alter the course as we had the Portside Inn coming on board this year, who offered us the use of their premises for registration and kindly provided hospitality afterwards. We would like to make a point of thanking the Portside Inn for what proved to be a great venue and hope we can come together next year again .We would also like to thank everyone who supported the race and hope they enjoyed the event and we look forward to welcoming everyone back next yer again!
