Club Report – Sunday 20th May 2018

It seems that whilst your reporter sits silently and alone in the empty mansion that is Chez Cavillator, may of you Harriers are out there running with your better halves. In this week of weddings and couples, just remember, if you have someone who gives you the same feeling you get when you see your food approaching in a restaurant, you’re a winner.


Valley parkrun:

Neil Campbell 20:11, Terry McIvor 23:17, Eamonn Donaghy 23:18, Owen Fulton 25:00, Adrian Hughes 25:16PB, Ken McAuley 25:18, Sarah Ross 25:37PB, Emily McKeown 27:00, Clare Teer 28:52, Frances Kane 29:12, Anita Piatek 29:25PB, Neill McGlinchey 29:46, Lee-Anne Hutchinson 29:48, Laura Campbell 30:31, Freda Stubbs 33:33PB, Fidelma McCoppin 33:34, Joanne Milne 34:20, Jim Hewitt 55:25

Victoria parkrun:

Micky McAuley 19:44PB

Micky usually runs more vertically than circularly (?) but has done previous parkrun locations in 20:06, 20:03 and 20:00.

He made sure he was not beaten by the “parkrun second” this time though. Well done Micky on your first sub 20!


Ecos parkrun:

Dawn Dubois 37:47PB


Queens parkrun:

Dermot Boyd 31:50PB


Carrickfergus parkrun:

Owen Millar 28:55


This week’s tourist was Alan Ladd who completed the Cuerden Valley parkrun near Preston in 24:16. Jonny and Philip Ladd also completed the course in the same time. Alan states he let Jonny win seeing it was his wedding day. We know the truth.


Waterworks junior parkrun:

Joseph Eager 10:14, Leo McAuley 11:03PB, Eloise McAuley 15:02


Jordanstown junior parkrun:

Riley Kerr 12:10PB


Friday saw the running of the Les Jones Memorial 10k.

It was another successful night for Mark Smith as he achieved yet another podium finish, coming second in 35:20. Well done Mark.

Joe Mathers also ran for the club finishing in 43:25


On Saturday, Nuala Muldoon took part in the inaugural Scarva House 10k in aid of Guide Dogs for the Blind. Nuala finished in 58:40.


Suzanne and Lord Ian Brennan headed off to sunny Manchester to take on Mo Farah and the Manchester Half Marathon this morning. Despite the hot conditions, both finished sub 2 hours, Suzanne 1:57:18 and Ian 1:59:44PB (and containing a potential 5k PB). Suzanne’s performance is all the more impressive given her recent loss. We salute her manky old hat. It will not be missed.


Not to be outdone, our other running couple, Mr & Mrs D, headed off to Liverpool and after warming up with a wee 5k on the Saturday (27:06 and 34:37) just went and did the full marathon as well today. Danny completed it in 3:42:35 and Tiffany in 5:20:36. Well impressive folks.


Here’s a tune for our Liver lovebirds.



Until next week, behave.
