parkrun report – 19th January 2019 by Adam Hayes

Brueton parkrun
Event number 444
19th January 2019

Report

On Saturday 19th January, 749 runners, walkers and joggers completed the 5k course. This was a record attendance, increasing by 55 from last week's 694. The temperature for the run was 2° Celsius and the runners were all covered up in protective gear. The atmosphere was great and everyone enjoyed it with 97 people achieving a PB and 190 first timers to the run (over 14%).

Run #444 was great and there was even a record in volunteers. There were so many people that there were 3 funnels (that must have made funnel ducking more challenging)!

I hope the legendary Margaret had a great birthday weekend.

Back to the run, I personally got 25:38, my 4th best run which I am pleased about.
