Club Race Report – 6th February 2022

nother windy one this week. Actually, on Wednesday night, I was so windy when I was walking to the gym that I got blown into the off licence. Extraordinary.

Taking on the parkruns this week were:

Valley parkrun:
Anton Piatek 29:46, Sinead O’Hare 31:44, Martin McCready 32:46

Waterworks parkrun:
Kevin Donnelly 19:52, Martin O’Neill 21:09, Stephen Armour 22:52, Paul Skillen 25:14, Sarah Ross 25:20, Brendan McGeown 25:23, Lord Ian Brennan 26:43, Joe Mathers 26:44, ADav 26:57, Karen McKee 29:15PB, Joanne Milne 31:42, Sharon Dunn 31:49, Claire McCann 49:39

Big crowd of Harriers at the Waterworks today as Suzanne Brennan was Run Director.
And because there was cake. Oh yeah, and because Lord Brennan was celebrating his 100th parkrun. And his 40th birthday. And his bad hangover.

Falls parkrun:
Susan Thompson 29:06

Antrim parkrun
Elaine Kennedy 28:21

Sixmilewater parkrun:
Tom Fleming 18:14 and first finisher!

And we had a tourist this week as our own Iron Man David Esler took on the Ballincollig parkrun, finishing in 24:22. This parkrun is in County Cork, just west of Cork City. Ballincollig is famous for its old gunpowder mills (now closed!) and for Rory Gallagher’s grave which is just outside the town. Everyday is still a school day kids. Never too old to learn.
Except Ian obviously, we gave up on him a long time ago.

Jordanstown junior parkrun:
Joseph “back in action” Eager 10:45, Matthew Hawkins 10:55

Waterworks junior parkrun:
Jessie Smith 11:54PB

Victoria junior parkrun:
Kayden McClelland 9:56, Kobe McClelland 10:05

So this week’s tune is for Lord Brennan and it is the song that was number one on the day of his birth. Very apt it is too! He may be more Airfix than catwalk, but he is a model in our eyes and he is looking good.
Until next week, behave.
