Club Race Report – 8th May 2022
Okay, let’s just say it. The Belfast Marathon was sooo last week. The question this week is, what’s next?
Another one? parkrun PB? Club championship points? Weight gain and lethargy? The choice is yours.
Firstly, another late result off the Vidiprinter and another potential kicking for this report writer.
Turns out I missed Nuala Muldoon from last week’s marathon report. Nuala has recently made a return to the club. Possibly unintentionally, who knows?
But, anyhow, she finished the marathon in 4:14:14.
Highly unlikely she’ll ever read this so I think I got away with it. But apologies anyway.
Taking on the parkruns this week were:
Sean Doherty 21:17PB, Brendan McGeown 23:45, Alan Erwin 23:46, Elijah Cushley 25:10, David Esler 25:22, Clare Teer 27:47, Cathy Ryan 30:38, Marie McBrien 31:25, Neill McGlinchey 31:37, Roseann McGeown 32:24, Roisin Brooks 33:37, John Teer 38:43, Martin McCready 58:57

But there was plenty of other non-parkrun, non-marathon racing going on this week too.
On Friday night, several Harriers represented the club at the Scrabo Striders Run the Runways event.
Emily Murphy 21:49, Sinead ROTM O’Hare 25:41, Anita Piatek 26:14
Marty O’Neill 37:26PB, Adam McCann 38:54, Stephen Murphy 51:18
On the same night, several other Harriers were chasing PBs elsewhere, at NBH Night of Friendly 5000s. The club was superbly represented alongside NBH, Tafelta, Keep Er Lit and Beechmount:
Aidy Hughes 24:30PB, David Butler 26:51
Craig Goodall 21:24 and race winner, Lord Ian Brennan 22:11PB, Orla McNulty 22:57, David Esler 23:08
ADav 19:22, Robbie Gould 19:26, Elijah Cushley 20:12, Sean Doherty 20:16, Stevo Armour 20:17
Tom Fleming 16:47, Kevin Donnelly 17:59
Taking on Pats 5k in Pomeroy yesterday, in memory of Pat Mallon, was Dermot Boyd with a time of 35:07
Folks there may have been more runners and definitely more PBs out there but if you don’t post in Team App then I can’t report it! The aul crystal ball ain’t what it used to be!
So this week’s tune is for those who took off on the runways on Friday night. Yes, I know this is runaways, not runways but you find a decent song about runways. And this one has Joan Jett.
Until next week, behave.
