Victoria Shield 2016
With the inclusion of the annual Victoria Shield in the Club Championship, this was always going to be a special event. We had 37 runners which is a record .
For those not in the know, the Victoria Shield is a handicapped race, with times worked out on recent 5k form, the slower runners go off first and the aim is that the runners will all merge together in the last 400m and there will be a mad sprint finish! The course is parkrun in reverse.
Today’s results are as follows, it’s a long list!
|Finish time||5K time|
Well done to our winners and congratulations to everyone who ran. It was lovely to see the sea of orange running round the park. Thanks to Robin for organising the handicaps and race entries, to Carole and Darren for the timing and to Anne and Cara for marshalling.
Thanks also to those who provided refreshments for afterwards, to quote Catherine Fearon ‘it’s better than an East Down AC spread!’ Also thanks to those who came down to cheer and support. £111 was raised today from entry fees and this goes to a charity of Brian’s choosing.
Thanks to Gillian Sykes, Louise Browne, Anne Moore and Elizabeth Leitch for the photos
