Valley parkrun run report for event number 128 - 11th February 2017.
Two runners achieved milestones this week - Both Anthony McKinley & Alister Morrison recorded their 50th parkrun.
A cold morning at the V36 Park especially for the volunteers who were standing around whilst the rest of you were working up a sweat! Speaking of working up a sweat ...... I had a few beads on my forehead whenever I had 5 pages of red screen at the start of the results processing. As ever it didn't defeat us and there must have been a few runners relieved that their PB's were recorded for prosperity!
Ciaran MCKENDRY was first over the line in 18:29.
Alex DAVIDSON was second over the line in a well deserved PB - 19:48.
James William BROWN on the recovery trail was third over the line in 20:03.
Nuala MULDOON was first (28th overall) over the line in 23:42.
Emma MULHOLLAND was second (37th overall) over the line in 25:42.
Oonagh O'FLAHERTY was third (43rd overall) over the line in 26:28.
