Club Report – Sunday 2nd December 2018

Darker nights and colder weather mean a quieter racing calendar at this time of year.
Some of us are focusing more on our training for the Xmas parties than the 5ks and 10ks.

Doing the rounds of the parkruns were:
Valley parkrun:
Ramunas Stanevicius 20:30, Neil McCready 22:15PB, Alan Erwin 23:12, Neil Campbell 23:34, Joe Mathers 23:34, Nuala Muldoon 25:04, Neill McGlinchey 29:04, Frances Kane 29:19, Hilary Faith 30:02, Fidelma McCoppin 32:11, Karen O’Boyle 32:37, Sharon Thompson 35:14, Patricia Kane 36:29, Zoe O’Prey 44:18, Claire Skillen 44:32, Mairead HOTM O’Hare 44:32

Orangefield parkrun:

No tourists this week! I’ll have to keep my useful facts to myself then.
Apart from, it’s impossible to say “Good Eye Might” without sounding Australian.

And ADav went to Stormont 25:44

Waterworks junior parkrun:
Joseph Eager 9:09PB, Leo McAuley 11:52, Eloise McAuley 11:55, Matthew Hawkins 12:34

Yesterday was the popular road racing season closer, the Seeley Cup 10k and the Harriers were out in force:
Mark Smith 34:45, Lee O’Boyle 35:51PB, Peter McGarry 36:26PB, Joe Mathers 37:43PB, Kevin Donnelly 40:15PB, Stephen “two runs” Semple 47:55, Maeve “two runs too” Kennedy 50:14, Maeve Dunseath 54:17PB, Lisa Kerr 57:21, Lee-Anne Hutchinson 1:01:53
Well done folks, plenty of PBs there.

Also yesterday was the latest Born 2 Run event at Loughgall. Taking on the 5k was Jo-Anne Smyth 43:09.

At this stage I should say a big thank you and good luck to Ryan Maxwell and the team who, for the last 7 years, ran the NI Running website. This site was the go-to spot for me, and for previous report writers, to get our Harrier results and to keep up with the local scene in general.
It makes it all the more important that, going forward, Harriers post all their non-parkrun results in Team App. Especially the PBs!!

So, this week’s song is dedicated to the NI Running website. Cheers folks.

Until next week, behave.
