Club Race Report – 20th November 2022

Another week has come and gone and we’re getting closer to the Christmas party, it has been mentioned that Mr Chairman plans on making no speeches but rumour has it that he does plan on buying everyone a drink, fill your boots folks.

Thankfully a quieter week to report on and thanks to the cav for letting me brush up on my race location knowledge but more on that later.

On Saturday Dermot Boyd took part in the Annagassan 10k in a time of 1.04:44, Annagassan is in Co Louth and as far as I read it was the 2nd most important Viking settlement in Ireland after Dublin, this Wikipedia is great and if I’ve googled the wrong place I do apologise to the people of Annagassan.

Our Juniors as usual took part in the junior parkruns on Sunday morning at the Waterworks where, Jessie Smith 11:45, Lexie Smith 14:01, Alice McAuley 20:54, Eloise McAuley 20:54, Taking part at Jordanstown where, Calum Murphy 10:41, Joe Eager 13:15, Andrea Bradley 13:55, Riley Kerr 14:06, Rhys Kerr 17:36.

Today was another instalment of the cross country league at Billy Neil playing fields for the Comber Cup, it was a bitterly cold day but that didn’t stop our 8 women and 10 men teams braving the cold to put in some brilliant performances, the women’s race was over 6k and men over 8k of rolling hills and countryside, Unfortunately there aren’t any result posted yet by Ballydrain Harriers the hosts so these will follow in due course but a very well done to you all.

So this weeks tune is for all those at todays XC who are eventually defrosting and starting to feel their fingers and toes again.

Until next week
