It was a frosty and icy morning for our parkrun this week, which must have been a bit chilly for the two Australian parkrun tourists from Melbourne we had running. We had other parkrun tourists from closer to home, from York, Cheltenham and Hull. In total we had 217 people taking part, of whom 14 were first timers and 19 recorded new Personal Bests.
The first finisher was Ramadam Osman who completed the course in an impressive 16.48, which given the conditions and a trip at the first corner was particularly impressive. Second finisher was Angus Holford in 17.14. Edward Mitchell was third finisher in 17.39.
The first female finisher was Laura Shewbridge in 19.48. Second female finisher was Louise Mitchel in a new PB of 21.49. Third female finisher was Jordi Moat in 23.07.
