Weather to run or not?

greg.jpgIt was an unusually quiet on the running front this week with the weather affecting some of the few races that were scheduled to take place including the Sperrin Harriers Winter league race on Saturday. One race did take place however despite the windy conditions and that was the aptly named Roller Coaster 5k which took place in Downpatrick. Greg McClure was not put of by the tough course or tough weather conditions and performed well to finish 2nd in the M55 category, 27th overall in a time of 21:36 which was his second 5k of the day after competing in parkun that morning.

The weekly timed events that take place all over the country also didn’t fair well, with weather conditions forcing some events to be called over or have course alterations. Notable performance this week include Paul Horans 1st place finish at the new Carrickfergus event as well as a 1st place finish for Galdys Ganiel-O’Neil at Derry and a 1st place finish for Alan Ritchie at Citypark. PBs were also picked up by Paul Gruhn, Eamon Sheridan and Sharron Sykes.
