IMC/Beechmount Harriers Track Meet

A considerable number of Orangegrove’s sprinters turned up on Saturday evening at the Mary Peters Track, Belfast, for the Irish Milers Club and Beechmount Harriers inaugural track meeting, and a very enjoyable evening it turned out to be. Conditions were perfect; dry, not too warm and little or no wind.

There were some impressive performances too from the Victoria Park athletes which included Jennifer Black, Leann Gibson, Joy McAleer, Raymond Leitch and Joe Craney. In the women’s 800m B race, Joy McAleer should feel well pleased with her time of 2.54.93 in some very distinguished company.

In the main women’s 1500m race Jennifer Black, getting back to her best following injury, crossed the line in 5.07.46. Leann Gibson ran well and clocked 5.17.77. In the 1500m men’s B race Joe Craney recorded 5.03.27 and Ray Leitch 5.10.74. Very well done indeed to all those who made their way to the Mary Peters Track, both those who ran and those who spectated and supported.
