Run Report – Sunday 14th July 2021

Yes, I know this should have been posted last night but there was football on, in case you hadn’t noticed. You may have seen some coverage on the tv. Possibly on EBC1.
Other home nations are available, allegedly.
2 late results off the Vidiprinter from last weekend:
Micky McAuley ran the NIMRA Annalong Horseshow mountain race (20k and 2,000m elevation) on July 4th. He finished 17th in 3:12.
And on the same day, Bernard McKeaveney completed the EAMs Independence Day 6 hr challenge, completing the marathon distance in 5hrs 14 mins.
Taking on the parkruns last week were:
Valley parkrun:
Tom Fleming 18:41 (and 2nd overall); Ben Davidson 21:19; Neil McCready 21:40, Sean Doherty 22:28; Alan Erwin 23:36, Anton Piatek 29:06, Matthew Hawkins 30:18, Ciaran Hawkins 30:19, Neill McGlinchey 30:23; Marie McBrien 31:26; Dermot Boyd 33:21, Joanne Milne 35:43, Sharon Dunn 35:44, Clare Teer 58:36, John Teer 58:37

And the Rt. Hon. ADav was at the Valley finishing in 19:10. Yet another PB!
Makes you wonder if he was really trying the other 291 times though.

Bangor junior parkrun:
Hollie Brennan 14:50
Waterworks junior parkrun:
Leo McAuley 8:58, Eloise McAuley 9:41PB
In other racing this week, Lee O’Boyle took on and completed the Val d’Aran by UTMB, which is a mountain running event in the Pyrenees which is 105km long with an elevation gain of 6,500m. Lee completed this in 19:24:13. Amazing run.
Those of us doing Paul’s 10@10 routes feel your pain Lee.
So, this week’s tune is definitely not a dig at the football.
I just happen to enjoy this Italian classic from Murph and the Magic Tones, the Armada Room’s finest.
Until next week, behave.
