Event number 427
6th October 2018
On a cold damp Saturday 420 hardcore individuals turned up to participate in the 14th Anniversary of parkrun (International parkrun day).
This was Brueton parkrun #427 ... unfortunately runner #427 decided to stay in their cosy bed .. along with their friends #421 thru to #426!
Perhaps we should explore the feasibility of putting under tarmac heating and a roof over Brueton Park!
Also, don't forget that this weekend there is no parking within the grounds of Solihull 6th Form College, so please make alternative arrangements and arrive in plenty of time by parking legally.

This week I completed my 50th parkrun ...
In position 50 was Chris DUNCAN with a time of 22:22
In 22nd place was Nick KTORI who finished his 85th run with a new PB of 20:37. Well done!
In 37th place was my eldest son Dan Hayes with a time of 21:49.
If you multiply 37 by 4 and then subtract 3 (you must all remember the BODMAS rule for ordering mathematical operations from school?) then you end up with Adam Hayes finishing in 145th position (I couldn't show any favouritism to any particular child)!!
