Club Report – Sunday 2nd June 2019

A quieter week this week as we move into June, possibly named after Juno, Roman goddess of marriage but more importantly the month of 24 in 24.

Firstly, taking on the parkruns this week were:

Tuesday night saw the second of the EAH Forest Trail Races at Woodburn. Back on midgey duty was Alan Kerr 38:08.

Yesterday saw 2 Harriers take on the East Coast AC NIMRA Cairncastle Classic. Lee O’Boyle finished in 1:23:43 and Micky McAuley in 1:34:38

Today’s big event was the Walled City Marathon with 4 Harriers taking on the popular event:
Craig Mills 3:42:12, Stephen Smyth 3:53:00, Jim Guinn 4:18:03, Brian MacDonald 5:18:26

So, for this week’s tune I was thinking about it being June. That got me thinking about June Whitfield, the actress. Which made me think of Norman Whitfield the Motown record producer. Here’s one of his best. Simples.

Until next week, behave.
