Club Run Report – 5th December 2021

“Regrets, I’ve had a few” sang Frank when he did it his way and I’m sure that, this morning, many of the Harriers who attended the Xmas dinner last night may have agreed. But a great night was still had by all, despite the nonsense being talked and the odd sore head today. Sure, we even had an appearance from Santa! Can’t believe Ian missed him.
Taking on the parkruns this week were:

Valley parkrun:
Ramunas Stanevicius 23:12, Elijah Cushley 25:23, Eloise McAuley 25:49, Paul Skillen 25:54, Clare Teer 28:17, Emily Murphy 28:47, Sharon Dunn 29:46, Dermot Boyd 33:50, John Teer 39:38, Marie McBrien 45:07

Waterworks parkrun:
Joe Mathers 23:45, David Esler 25:02PB, Maeve Kennedy 25:15 and first female finisher, Lord Ian Brennan 25:25, Claire McCann 30:04

Queens parkrun Belfast version:
Elaine Kennedy 29:35

Queens parkrun, Glasgow version:
Sarah Ross 26:47

Jordanstown junior parkrun:
Emily Murphy 9:10, 3rd finisher and 1st female finisher, Kayden McClelland 9:55, Kobe McClelland 10:13, Matthew Hawkins 11:12

Waterworks junior parkrun:
Leo McAuley 9:04 and 2nd finisher, Eloise McAuley 9:16 and 3rd finisher
And ADav was back at the Valley finishing in 22:29

The last major road race of the year took place this weekend and several Harriers took the opportunity for one more potential PB at the Podium for Sport Seeley Cup 10k:
Kevin Donnelly 36:49PB, Alan Erwin 38:56PB, Johnny Carey 46:41, Roisin Brooks 59:15
Rumours that Benny McGeown was a no show as he was making any early start on his outfit for the Xmas dinner are still to be confirmed. From the look of him last night it is unlikely.

Our own XC master, Tom Fleming, was representing the club again this week, this time at the National XC Uneven Ages competition. Tom finished 35th in the Boys U15 race in 11:54

So this week’s tune is an 80s classic, like many of our members!
Until next week, behave.
