May Fair races to be staged

County Antrim Harriers are looking forward to welcoming hundreds of athletes from across Northern Ireland for return of their annual May Fair 10k and 5k Races this Saturday morning (May 28).

The popular races, which are held in conjunction with the Ballyclare May Fair, will again start and finish at The Cloughan, home of Ballyclare Rugby Club.

Colin Gilmore, chair of County Antrim Harriers, said: “The Club is delighted that, Hanna Plastics Ltd is this years’ main race sponsor and is also providing the lead race car.

As well as Natalie Davidson from ALIVE Massage who will be providing post-race sports massages.”

Hanna Plastics Ltd is the main race sponsor of the County Antrim Harriers event in Ballyclare on Saturday.

And as the event returns following the lifting of Covid pandemic restrictions, Colin is urging the community to show their support for the participants.

He said: “The club would also like to take this opportunity to encourage the public to take to the streets of Ballyclare from 10am to watch, clap and cheer to support the May Fair racers; and also to thank them in advance for their patience for any disruption caused.”

Online race registration has now closed but on the day entries will be available on race morning between 8.00am and 9.30am at the rugby club, and also, on Friday (May 27) between 6.00pm and 8.00pm during race pack collection.
