Club Run Report – Sunday 16th August 2021

Classy, bubbly, often drunk at parties. I could be talking about prosecco. I could be talking about most of our female Harriers. But more of that later.

Taking on the parkruns this week were:
Valley parkrun:
Alan Erwin 20:32PB (and 3rd finisher), Ciaran Hawkins 28:19, Neill McGlinchey 30:33, Owen Fulton 30:41, John Teer 40:06

Waterworks parkrun:
Joe Mathers 22:27, Dawn Blain 24:18

Queens parkrun:
Kevin Donnelly 25:01

Enniskillen parkrun:
Bernie McAllister 26:50

Sixmilewater parkrun:
Tom Fleming 18:05 PB and 1st finisher.

Well done Tom!

And the Rt. Hon. ADav was off on his holibobs.

Jordanstown junior parkrun:
Kayden McClelland 9:47, Kobe McClelland 10:12, Matthew Hawkins 10:30

Waterworks junior parkrun:
Leo McAuley 8:33PB, Eloise McAuley 8:55PB
Well done the McA Team!

Other racing started on Wednesday night with the Crawfordsburn 5k Trail Race:
Anita Piatek 26:50, Aidy Hughes 27:27, Dermot Boyd 35:02

Saturday saw 2 Harriers head for the hills and the Born2Run Dambusters 10 mile race at Silent Valley. Marty O’Neill finished in 1:05:13 and Elaine Kennedy finished in 1:41:45.

Not sure what the collective noun is for a group of female Harriers. A swarm? A mess? A nest? A horde? (answers on a postcard…)

Anyway, a lot of Harrierettes descended on Castle Ward for prosecco and a 5k race. But mainly for the prosecco.
Taking part in the Atlas Running event were:
Karen McKee 26:39, Gemma Fowler 27:08, Clare Teer 28:33, Sarah McCafferty 28:38, Nicky Fleck 30:44, Barbara Sawyer 31:09, Marie McBrien 31:10, Roseann McGeown 31:18, Fidelma McCoppin 31:48, Marie McFarlane 31:48, Gillian Bainbridge 33:02, Hannah Hope 33:44, Roisin Brooks 33:46, Sharon Dunn 33:47, Marga Regan 34:41, Louise Long 34:55, Leeanne Skillen 35:31, Laura Campbell 35:32, Lisa Kerr 36:07, Pamela McCafferty 36:43, Paula Kelly 48:07

Just the one header allowed out this weekend as Micky McAuley headed off to the Derryveagh mountains in Donegal to take on the 55k and 4,000m of ascent of the Seven Sisters Skyline event. Micky finished in 9:41:45. I’ve had relationships that were shorter. But just as painful.

There are no good songs about prosecco. I know; I’ve looked.

So here is one about wine. Perfect for those Monday night blues.
Until next week, behave.
