Club Report – Sunday 3rd February 2019

Another week of fighting the weather and the couch to get out on the roads. Even some of the parkruns suffered this week.

Taking on the remaining parkruns this week were:
Valley parkrun:
Neil Campbell 20:13, Laura “ice cream with a flake” Rose 23:48 (2nd female finisher), Nuala “really big ice cream with a flake” Muldoon 26:21, Neill McGlinchey 27:32, Emily Dowling 28:55, Lord Ian Brennan 28:56, David Esler 29:35, Angela Stevens 31:39PB

Waterworks parkrun:
Neil McCready 20:43PB, Tony McKeating 22:14PB, Maeve Kennedy 24:23 (3rd female finisher), Robert Gould 25:38, Claire McCann 28:19, Roseann McGeown 33:14, Sharon Thompson 35:09, Josi McKeating 35:30
Fair play to anyone PBing in those icy conditions.

Queens parkrun:
Jim Guinn 26:32

Stormont parkrun:
Hilary Faith 30:11

Orangefield parkrun:
Ken McAuley 22:09, Susan Thompson 24:40

Taking part in the first ever Stranmillis College parkrun was Elaine Kennedy 31:12. Good luck with the new parkrun guys!

This week’s parkrun tourists are Mr & Mrs Donaldson. Danny came first in the Delaware & Raritan Canal parkrun in 19:45 and Tiffany was second female finisher in 29:02. This parkrun is held in Somerset, New Jersey. Danny and Tiff have somehow managed to find a parkrun in the most unremarkable part of America. I cannot tell you anything interesting about Somerset NJ. I apologise. Or apologize if still in NJ.

Jordanstown junior parkrun:
Matthew Hawkins 10:48PB

Yesterday the latest Born2Run event at Antrim Castle Gardens managed to survive the weather. The 10k was won by our very own Mark Smith in 34:45. Also competing were Ramunas Stanevicius 38:32, Yasmin Lynn 53:20, Galina Stanevicius 54:32, Lisa Kerr 54:24PB.
Jo Smyth represented the club in the 5k, finishing in 43:13

And, finally, this morning, a couple of Harriers took part in the Lagan Valley Charity 5k:
Laura Rose 21:47, Suzanne Brennan 29:28

Another tune in honour of the weather this week. I look forward to a different theme very soon. We all do.

Until next week, behave.
