Club Race Report – 29th May 2022

I’m disappointed in myself but I don’t think I have it in me to make any sarcastic comments about Liverpool fans this week given what happened both on and off the pitch last night. And that’s despite me getting here hours early to write something.
Taking on the parkruns this week were:
Valley parkrun:
ADav 24:28, Nuala Muldoon 24:51, Ciaran Wright 27:44, Ciaran Hawkins 28:18, Martin McCready 33:36, Joanne Milne 34:45, John Teer 38:17
Waterworks parkrun:
Bernie McAllister 27:39, David Esler 29:51
Victoria parkrun:
Elijah Cushley 20:08PB
Falls parkrun:
Anita Piatek 29:34
Portrush parkrun:
Stephen Armour 21:28PB, Sharon Dunn 30:00
Ormeau Park parkrun:
Susan Thompson 37:10
Antrim parkrun:
Stephen Semple 23:47, Maeve Kennedy 24:02PB, Elaine Kennedy 28:21, Riley Kerr 33:47
Jordanstown junior parkrun:
Elijah Cushley 7:38 and second finisher, Emily Murphy 8:10 and third finisher, Sinead O’Hare 9:46, Matthew Hawkins 10:24, Andrea Bradley 13:55
Waterworks junior parkrun:
Eloise McAuley 8:40, Leo McAuley 10:30, Jessie Smith 11:13, Lexi Smith 14:06PB
Musgrave junior parkrun:
Leo McAuley 9:03
There were 2 racing events this week, both of which form part of the 2022 Club Championship (kerching again), with the Mayfair races in Ballyclare on Saturday and Newry on Sunday.
The ever popular Mayfair event (absolutely nothing to do with the spread they put on) had perfect weather conditions and saw another great turnout from the Harriers:
Tom Fleming 16:25PB, Emily Murphy 20:59, Brendan McGeown 21:13PB, Craig Goodall 21:28, Paul Skillen 22:38, Karen McKee 23:56, Aidy Hughes 24:51, Sinead O’Hare 26:50, Marie McBrien 28:41, Roseann McGeown 30:30
And great to see 2 juniors leading the way. Unless you’re one of the oldies they beat of course.
Sean Doherty 42:35PB, Robbie Gould 42:42, Robert Gould 45:04, Stephen Murphy 49:49, Janet Grew 1:01:43, Dermot Boyd 1:03:51PB, Roisin Brooks 1:04:23
Then on Sunday we had other Harriers in Newry at both 10k and half marathon distance:
Kevin Donnelly 37:08
Half Marathon
Martin O’Neill 1:21:54PB, Patrick Shields 1:32:15, Alan Stewart 1:44:58, Ciaran Wright 1:48:15
So this week’s tune is for the Juniors who ruled the Mayfair 5k. It’s an oldie for the young ‘uns. From one Junior to the others.
Until next week, nunca caminarás solo.
