Club Run Report – Sunday 5th September 2021

Well, a quieter week this week after all the thrills of Larne last weekend. (Well, there’s a sentence I never thought I’d write!).

Taking on the parkruns this week were:

Valley parkrun:
Ben ROTM Davidson 20:51 (and ahead of his Da, again), Alan Erwin 24:34, Joanne Milne 35:12, Sharon Dunn 55:43, Stephen Armour 55:43

And a big congratulations to SB and the whole Valley parkrun team on reaching their 300th event.
And a big thanks to the Harriers who took over volunteering for the occasion.
Waterworks parkrun:

Kevin Donnelly 18:13PB, Dawn Blain 23:17, Eloise McAuley 24:23PB, Micky McAuley 24:25, Hollie Brennan 44:12, Suzanne Brennan 44:28, Lord Ian Brennan 44:28, Claire McCann 48:42
Well done Kevin on the PB and Dawn being 2nd female finisher but the big performance was from Eloise who was 4th female finisher. For those that don’t know, Eloise is 8 years old.

Victoria parkrun:
Emily Murphy 30:36

Carrickfergus parkrun:
Maeve Kennedy 26:16PB

Sixmilewater parkrun:
Tom Fleming 18:01, Elaine Kennedy 32:48, Lisa Kerr 33:51

And the Rt Hon ADav finished well behind Ben, again, at the Valley in 24:10. More from him, probably, next week…..
We had a tourist this week too!

Anton Piatek was at the Queen Elizabeth parkrun.
This parkrun, surprisingly, is not held inside Buckingham Palace, although it definitely should be.
It is held in the QE Country Park on the South Downs which are somewhere in Southern England.
The nearest town is Petersfield.

Mark Owen, from Take That, lives in Petersfield.
But it didn’t take a minute. It took Anton 24:28

Sorry, that’s all I’ve got. It’s been a long week.

Jordanstown junior parkrun:
Joseph Eager 9:05PB, Emily Murphy 9:38PB, Matthew Hawkins 10:05

Waterworks junior parkrun:
Leo McAuley 8:23PB, Eloise McAuley 8:54PB, Hollie Brennan 16:10
Well done to Eloise on a weekend PB double!

My final note is for Helen Torr. Helen, I can confirm that Alex Davidson does not write the reports. To be honest, I’m not even sure he can read them.

This week’s tune is for our own pocket rocket. It’s from well before her time but it’s still a tune.
Congrats again Ms McAuley!
Until next week, behave.
