Weekly Roundup 13/09/2021

Hi and welcome to the latest roundup of club results. Another great week of runs with some PBs being set.

Night of friendly 5000

Wednesday night saw a couple of Dubs travel up to the Meadowbank track in Magherafelt for the Tafeltea AC night of friendly 5ks. Race 3 had Nessa Agnew getting round in a time of 22.31mins and Race 4 had Pete Mallon get round in 22.12. Well done both of you and thanks to Tafelta for the club invite.

Ards 5 Mile

Friday had the popular Ards 5 miler. Again 2 Dubs took up the challenge. Steve McCamley finished in 68th place in a time of 35.49 mins. Julia Orr finished in 113 place in 40.07mins and a new distance PB. Again well done you you both. Plenty of hills to contend with by all accounts too.

Mourne Mountain Marathon

It’s not your average 26 mile marathon! The Mourne Mountain Marathon is a navigational and endurance event for teams of two. At the start of each day teams are presented with a route card listing a number of control markers which are identified by 6-figure map references. They must visit each control in the prescribed order but may choose their own route between each marker. A feature of the event is the overnight camp at which all teams must be self-sufficient with everything being carried throughout the two days of competition.”

Jim Larkin and his brother Noel took on the Challenge. Basically a half marathon each on both days. Saturday going up the lads did the distance in a combined time of 7:44:28 hours and Sunday coming down was completed in 6:03:49 hours for a total time of 13 hours 48.17 mins to come in 41st place. Great going Jim and Noel.

Brighton Marathon

On Sunday the Brighton Marathon was attended by Katherine Harkness who finished in 570th place (39th female and 5th in age group) in a new PB of 3:35.04. Considering over 4000 runners took part in the race this was another great achievement by Katherine. Doing the club and herself proud as ever

Thanks, Fra
