Race Report 11.02.12

Thanks to Dr. David Reid for writing this weeks race report article.

 

Belfast Victoria Parkrun Event number #42

11th February 2012

 Belfast was lucky enough to avoid the national cold snap which had decimated many Parkrun events in the mainland of Britain. Despite murky skies above, a 123 strong line-up of athletes congregated to hear the words of Gary Keenan, the race director, who thanked Belfast City Council, Parkrun and the volunteers for making the event possible.

 After the first lap, leaders Eamonn McLaughlin from Lagan Valley AC and Dennis Samuel Scott from North Down were running nip and tuck at the head of the field, with Brendy Donnelly a close third, and a group consisting of Terry Eakin, David Proctor, Brian Derby and Michael Thompson following behind.

 McLaughlin, making his debut at the event, opened up a gap from his rival Scott in the second lap and held the lead to finish as winner with a fantastic time of 17:35. Scott fought hard and finished in second place, 14 seconds behind McLaughlin, with Brendy Donnelly finishing in 3rd place.

 Willowfield’s David Proctor, currently leader of the annual points competition, solidified his position with a superb display of grit and determination to knock 10 seconds of his PB with a time of 18:25 and finish. Speaking after the event, Proctor was pleased, “Delighted, I’ve been doing a lot of speed training and training for the Belfast marathon, and I beat my nemesis Terry Eakin, absolutely chuffed”

 Arguably, an equally superlative performance was provided by the most recent park-runner of the month for Victoria - Orangegrove’s Michael Thompson, who smashed his PB by 20 seconds to come in 7th position with a time of 18:53.  In doing so, Thompson climbed to second in the table of the annual points competition, overtaking club-mate, Raymond J Leitch. Thompson was keen to praise his coach Gary Keenan when he gave a few words after the race “I’d like to thank Gary and I’m delighted that the hard work in training has paid off”. Thompson now has a 7 point lead over Leitch who finished in 37th place with a time of 22:04, just 2 seconds shy of his PB from the previous week.

 For the ladies, Lagan Valley AC completed a double of winners when Ruth Magill won the ladies category and finish 12th place overall with a time of 19:47.  Ruth, who marked her debut at Victoria, was magnanimous in her support for the event, “It is a really good course and I really enjoyed it, and it is good for people who don’t usually run to be able to take part, (Parkrun) is a great idea”.

 Darren Moffett, another Victoria Parkrun regular smashed his PB time by taking 32 seconds of his previous best. Darren spoke after by saying that heSurprised himself, but felt strong”.  Another fine performance was provided by Jess Fairclough (Willowfield) in the JW14 category who was the third female to finish and record her first sub 22 min Parkrun time.

 Overall,  50 people took advantage of the good running conditions today and recorded PB’s which was nearly half of the total field and a very well done is extended to all those people especially and to everyone who competed and volunteeredHope to see you all again at Belfast Victoria Parkrun soon!
