Sat 10th Sept 2022: PARKRUNS

A total of 57 North Belfast Harriers took part in 10 parkruns this week. A great turnout!

Well done to Andrew MILLIGAN and Carol CLARKE for being the first finisher and first lady finisher respectively at Waterworks and Larne parkruns.

Congratulations to all the runners getting PBs this week: Andrew MILLIGAN, Mark McAVOY, Peter DOLAN and Niall McAULEY achieved PBs at the Waterworks. Alex REID, Charlie McLARNON and David JOHNSTON achieved PBs at the Valley parkrun while Glenn BEATTIE got a PB at Landesgartenschau Park parkrun.

A notable milestone this week, Thomas McLAUGHLIN chalked up 250 parkruns as well as the same number of volunteering roles. Well done Thomas.

A special mention to Andrew MILLIGAN who not only broke the course record at the Waterworks, he recorded the fastest UK & Ireland parkrun time this week. The new record now stands at a very hard to beat 14:47. Well done Andrew.

Well done to everybody who took park in this week’s parkruns and a big thank you to the army of volunteers.
