Club Report – Sunday 6th October 2019

Bit tired today. I was up late watching Scullion in the marathon last night and was busy being very impressed by Calum Hawkins. And hadn’t really recovered from Mageean’s PB earlier. All great stuff. It would almost inspire you to stick the trainers on and get out there. Almost.

Late result off the vidiprinter, the Divis 10k from last Sunday:
Jonathan Carter 47:58, Maeve Kennedy 1:02:08

Taking on the 15th anniversary parkruns this week were:
Valley parkrun:

Our international correspondent has sent in a report stating that Dermot Boyd is at it again.

Dermot completed the 10k event in Bodrum, Turkey in 1:06:31. Anne ran the much more sensible 5k distance in 46:51.













Main event of the week was the Orangegrove NI & Ulster Relays at Victoria Park.
The Harriers had both male and female teams in both the senior and masters races, although our elite talent was reserved for the junior races. Our primary school squad were so fast they could not be timed.

The Men’s Senior team finished in 24th place in 48:48.
Ladies Senior team finished in 28th place in 49:36
Men’s Masters team finished in 35th place in 52:55
Ladies Masters team 1 finished in 38th place in 50:41
Ladies Masters team 2 finished in 41st place in 51:00

















































































































































































There were at least 4 Harriers taking part in the Dune Half Marathon today but results are not available at the time of writing. It’s a cross border event so it’s probably Boris’ fault.

There may have been Harriers at the Craigavon ¾ Marathon event too but there are no results available there yet either. Probably not Boris’ fault; it’s just Craigavon. The results are probably still circling a roundabout somewhere.

So, this week’s song is for those who represented the club at the relays. I could have used the Van Morrison song, Orangefield. But this is better. And is still orange.

Until next week, behave.
