weekly round up, 31 August 2014

 

It’s been a relatively quiet week for racing this week while we all look forward to the Laganside 10k next Sunday, but with what races took place, there was plenty to cheer about for the club

Double win for McKinstry

Mark McKinstry continued his winning form with two top spots, one as a guest in the East Antrim Inter Club event on Tuesday the 26th, finishing in a time of 26.43, and then on Saturday in the Davagh Forest race he again claimed the win.

Killyleagh and Dessie’s Run 10k

Pure Running Half Marathon Series

After the Dambusters half marathon on Saturday, the results of the series (although most previously known)  were finalised and club members won 5 categories – Penny Lindsay in the F45 category with an overall time of 9.50.49; Ita McCambridge in F50 with a time of 10.16.12; Michael Fitzpatrick in M40 with a time of 7.59.15.  In the M45 category there was success with first placed Nat Glenn in a time of 8.03.19, followed by Martin Cox 3rd in 8.37.16 and Colin Simpson 4th in 8.55.32.  Thomas McKinstry finished in 10th overall in this category in a time of 12.26.18, and it’s worth mentioning that he did every half marathon in the series.  Greg McClure claimed second spot in the M55 category with an overall time of 9.04.13, and in the MO category Marc Jennings won overall in a time of 7.54.58.

Dambusters 10k and half marathon

Wet and windy conditions greeted the runners at Silent Valley reservoir on Saturday in a soggy end to the Pure running half marathon series.  The race started out with 3 miles on the roads around the reservoir before moving into the park itself.  Sean McShane proved the chicken dance warm up works, racing to the finish line in 5th place and a time of 1.27.15, first in the M40 category.  Colin Simpson followed just behind in 12th in 1.31.11; Patrick McShane (44th) in 1.40.38; Thomas McKinstry (149th) in 2.08.49; John Burns (150th) in 2.08.50, Sandy Carr 9160th) in 2.13.01 and a new PB for the recently returned Kerry McShane in 161st and a time of 2.13.01
