I should start by reporting the result that came in too late for last week’s report. Elaine Kennedy completed the New York marathon in 5:22:39. A great result as Elaine had to contend with a lot of injury issues during her training.
Doing the rounds of the parkruns were:
Tom Fleming 22:47, Neil McCready 23:15, David Esler 28:08, Hilary Faith 29:46PB, Frances Kane 31:29, Stephen Weir 33:54, John Teer 34:20, Mairead O’Hare 34:47, Louise Ladd 34:47, Patricia Kane 50:08
Joe Mathers 18:51PB (and 3rd place overall), Robert Gould 22:37, Ken McAuley 23:48, Lord Ian Brennan 24:49, Roisin Brooks 28:56
Maeve Kennedy 24:51, Deborah Ewing 26:34, Tina Steele 26:34, Elaine NY Kennedy 47:38
Laura ROTM Rose 21:50PB (and 2nd female finisher), Karen McKee 22:55, Noel Bloomfield 23:41PB, Jennifer Maguire 32:02
Galina Stanevicius 27:19
This week’s parkrun tourists included Emily Dowling who completed the Listowel parkrun in 29:48. It’s in Kerry. I’ve never been. But this week’s winner is, again, Anita Piatek who completed the Jindabyne parkrun in 31:53. It’s in Australia. Gabriel Byrne was in a film called Jindabyne. I’ve never seen it. Rolf Harris sang a song called Jindabyne. Guess what? I’ve never heard it.
Waterworks junior parkrun:
Joseph Eager 9:20, Leo McAuley 10:17, Matthew Hawkins 11:17, Eloise McAuley 12:27, Olivia McCready 13:16
Jordanstown Junior parkrun:
Riley Kerr 12:55, Rhys Kerr 14:35
On Saturday, a few Harriers were at the opening Sperrin Harriers race of their Winter League.
Davagh Forest 10k Trail Race:
Lee O’Boyle 39:30, Nuala Muldoon 52:28, Jackie McCreesh 1:11:38
So a relatively quiet week that started with the torrential rain and wind of Tuesday training finished with perfect weather conditions for the first Trail @10 this morning as Lee took us round the paths of Woodburn Forest. So this week’s tune is for those who hit the forest trails.
Until next week, behave.
