Alan Kerr completed his tour of the Sperrin Harriers Winter Trail Series with the Parkanaur 10 mile race, the longest of the series. Alan finished in 1:39:06.

Three Harriers took part in the EAMS World Marathon event yesterday, all at the half marathon distance. Johnny Carey finished in 1:50:36 and Elaine Kennedy in 2:15:52 but the result of the day was Prof Alan Ladd who won the event with a crackin’ PB time of 1:20:08.

Results for the Junior East Coast XC event are still to be published so we’ll catch them up next week.

So this week’s tune is for Alan. He completed his win in 80 mins and 8 secs. So here’s an 808 State classic for all the overage cheesy quavers at the club. Glow sticks at the ready…..

Until next week, behave.
