Run Forest Run – Minnowburn 10k

Emily Paisley was taking part in the Run Forest Run – Minnowburn 10k this weekend which was originally postponed due to weather back in November. This race starts and finishes at the Mary Peters Track, covering track, forest trail and country road as it takes runners through the National Trust property at Minnowburn and back along the banks of the Lagan. Good work Emily – ticking off another of the Run Forest Run 10k race series, 4 down 3 to go!

Emily Paisley – 1.00.50

Kearney and McBride Cross Country

Glenmore AC hosted the annual Kearney & McBride Cups Cross Country event on Sunday. Brian Todd was representing Orangegrove in the event which was held close to his hometown of Dundalk in the beautiful grounds of Bellurgan Park. Though conditions were damp and heavy under foot as the ground had only just thawed out after the recent cold weather, this wasn’t enough to keep Brian Todd from continuing his streak of cross-country races. Well done Brian.

This weekend’s parkrun highlight was at Stormont where Gemma Blake was first female finisher for the 2nd time in a row with a time of 20.39. Great running Gemma.
