Tim Robinson joins fifty club at Portrush Parkrun

Garvagh Forest, event 115 -27 completed the course. Gordon Linton of Sperrin Harriers ruined his magnificent record of breaking nineteen minutes here each time, but his 19:41 was still enough to ensure that he was the fastest finisher for the eighth time from nine visits. Rachel Montgomery (28:37) was the fastest female on her debut at this event.

Limavady was cancelled, a casualty of the wintry weather.

Limepark Playing Fields, event 65 -39 completed the course. Nigel Kane joined the 25 Club. James McCann (20:48) was fastest finisher for the third time from four attempts this year. Elizabeth Dawson, representing Lagan Valley AC, was the fastest female for the first time from five visits, clocking a course personal best of 22:47.

Portrush, event 527 – 136 completed the course. Tim Robinson joined the 50 Club. Diane Hill recorded her 350th parkrun, while Martin Smith got his barcode scanned for the three hundredth time. Chris Denton returned to the beach to post his fifty-sixth fastest finisher effort here. His 19:29 time was just thirteen seconds ahead of another speedster, Jason Wilson.

Fastest female for the fifty-second time was Lagan Valley’s Julie Murphy who finished in a time of 23:57 in difficult conditions.
