In a week which suffered the rigours of Storm Arwen, and the resulting cancellation of many events running and otherwise, Harriers found success in adverse conditions at the Valley and MUSA Parkruns.
Valley Parkrun, Newtownabbey
Andrew Newell excelled during a tempestuous weekend to finish first at the Valley Parkrun, with a course personal best of 17.54.
MUSA Parkrun, Cookstown
Paul McLaughlin emerged from a cold and blustery MUSA morning with his sub 20 time of 19.54, followed by Jason O’Neill (21.35), Richard Fox (22.15), and Patsy Hughes (22.40). Congratulations to Tanya Quinn who finished as 3rd lady in 23.09, with Dearbhla Glackin and Paula Glasgow crossing the line together in 25.30.
