Club Report – Sunday 8th September 2019

I thought you would have had no time for running this week, what with all the revision required for the big quiz on Saturday night. I know I’ve spent hours trying to work out how to hide my phone up my sleeve and still be able to access Google.

More late results off the vidiprinter this week as we now have the junior results from last week’s Laganside Junior 1 mile race:
Peter McCann 7:06, Oran McKee 7:17, Amie McDonald 9:13, Hollie Brennan 12:39.

Taking on the parkruns this week were:
Valley parkrun:
Joe Mathers 19:17PB, Neil McCready 21:21, Sean Doherty 22:06PB (again!), Ben Davidson 24:15, Owen Fulton 26:16, Joanne Milne 29:45, Sharon Dunn 29:45, Lee-Anne Hutchinson 30:25, Yasmin Lynn 58:24

Waterworks parkrun:
Ken McAuley 21:11, Susan Thompson 24:22

Queens parkrun:

Carrick parkrun:

And ADav was at the Valley, 20:59.

It was EAMS 100th marathon event yesterday and taking on the full distance were Neil Campbell 2:58:43 (second place overall), Laura Rose 3:54:49 (2nd female finisher) and Suzanne Brennan 4:12:30PB (3rd female finisher).

Also on Saturday was the Larne 10k. Representing the Harriers were:
Ramunas Stanevicius 39:52, Galina Stanevicius 1:00:03, Dermot ROTM Boyd 1:02:37 (and age category winner).

Taking on Sir Mo and his dodgy arm warmers over at the Great North Run today were 4 hardy Harriers: Paddy Brooks 1:51:32, Roisin Brooks 2:06:41, Anita Piatek 2:09:32, Ian Simpson 3:08:51.

Meanwhile, a number of Harriers took on the 10k na Ceathrún Gaeltachta to raise awareness of organ donation. No club names included with results.

My spies also tell me that Lee O’Boyle has won the Killyleagh Half Marathon in 1:17:39 but I will confirm this next week if possible.

So this week’s tune, in honour of the GNR, is from an underrated Newcastle band and is an absolute classic. Consider yourselves educated. You’re welcome.

Until next week, behave.
