Victoria Parkrun 5k Merit League Race

At the AGM we agreed to replace the Jimmy Irvine 10K with a Parkrun on the 5th of November, however it slipped most peoples minds and only a late minute email reminded the club it was a merit league counter.

So was it poorly attended, NO WAY, a mighty 12 of the royal blues turned out to run, and were supported by 1 and a 1/2 harriers from the side, Natalie with Finlay in a super looking buggy.

Maybe the late notice helped, or the fact that it was free or maybe the glorious clear crisp weather was the clincher. Who knows, for me it was the cost free aspect, locality and weather that got me out and racing on my second ever parkrun. The results are as follows:

5th Andy 17:51

8th Kevin 18:25

13th Craig W 19:00

31st Scott 20:16

40th Lochlann 20:46

52nd Duncan 21:22

108th Chris H 23:43

130th Kenny H 24:37

146th Caroline H 25:00

162nd Linda 25:28

189th Margaret 26:25

213th Chris G 27:17 (time taken from Strava)

Three runners managed pb’s for the course Kevin, Lochlann and myself). The first runner home was Steve Daye from North Ayrshire AC in 17:51

1st Lady Jaqui Thomson from Victoria Park COG in 19:42
