Club Race Report – 6th November 2022

Not surprisingly, it was a quieter week after all the fun of Dublin last week. Blisters and hangovers being nursed all across Mallusk.

Taking on the parkruns this week were:

In this quieter week, our elites (Juniors) took the spotlight with some great performances at the Uneven Age Groups XC Championships at Finn Valley Centre in Stranorlar, Donegal.

Boys U17:

Tom Fleming 13:57 and 7th place

Boys U19:

Adam McCann 23:29

Micky McAuley also continued his off road racing with a 35:19 result in the NIMRA Run for Rescue race at Donard Park.

Yesterday also saw the latest Run Forest Run event in the Born 2 Run series. This one was at Minnowburn:


And Obviously Dermot Boyd 1:08:29, Lauren Penman 1:08:42

So this week’s tune is for our juniors. Yes, it is a tenuous link. And, yes, I’m sure the juniors have never heard of this. But they’re still young. They can learn.

Until next week, behave.
