Bournemouth parkrun report 17th June 2017
'Feeling hot, hot, HOT!!!'
It was definitely a warm one today at Bournemouth's 203rd parkrun. The crowds descended on King's Park with neither the humongous Southampton or Poole parkruns taking place today.
The sweltering temperatures didn't put anyone off with 62 Bournemouth first timers. There were a staggering 46 new PB's, which equates to exactly a 10th of the field, with 460 runners crossing the line today.
Big shout outs go to Mitchell Griffiths, Tony Clifton and Laura Read who all earn a red t-shirt for completing 50 parkruns. Peter Hellawell and Steve Elson from Littledown Harriers, Premkumar Jayapaul from Christchurch Runners and Agnes Ale all hit the 100 milestone this week too. Well done to all - amazing achievements!
Now, along with most of the south coast I will go and make the most of the beautiful place we live and hit the beach!
See you all next Saturday at 9am.
