Victoria parkrun #249 – Club Championship

This was always going to be busy! The first event in the OAC club championship and an inter club competition with our friends from Acorns AC.

Nearly 300 runners took part, over 60 from our club and over 30 sporting the blue of Acorns.

Our 1st finisher was the speedy Andy McIntyre in 18.03 and First Lady home for OAC was the accomplished triathlete Trudy Brown in an excellent 20.49.

As our club championship is age graded for the 1st time this year , it will be interesting to see what this does to the results. Our captains are currently working on compiling the results and these will be posted in due course.

I can tell you that Trudy will be at the top of the ladies’ table with an age grading of 76.3 with Brian Todd leading the way for the gentlemen with an age grading of 81.12 (international level, well done Mr Todd) .

There were Belfast Victoria parkrun PBs for Jenny Powell, Emma McWilliams, Julie McKimm, Eoghan and Sam Rainey, Tim Robinson, Ian Reid, Ian Millgate and Michael O’Donoghue.

Congratulations to Eoghan Rainey and Fintan Hurl on achieving the 50 parkruns milestone.

Thanks as always to our volunteers, without them we couldn’t run every week.¬†OAC parkrun volunteers this week were Carole Bell, Liz Murray, Lisa Fleming, Jim Harris, Darren Moan and Gerry Ward.
