Royal Parks Half and Cabbage Patch 10 the following day meant we were missing a few regulars but still we had 199 runners at Crane parkrun this week. 4 of those were taking part in their first ever parkrun we had 8 paying their first visit to us.
Despite it being unseasonably warm, a whole heap of PBs were had this week – 28 in all.
Just one milestone this week – John Paton of Runnymede Runners, having only run at Crane 17 times, chose our course to complete run number 400. There’s no t-shirt for 400, but we give you our “Congratulations!” John.
The front of the field looked quite different this week. First across the line was Colin Goulding at 18:41, second at 19:19 was Will Hulacki and third at 19:47 was Ryan Lightfoot.
Michelle Beaumont was our first female, coming in 9th at 20:49, second was Maria Jovani at 22:33, position 17, and third was Sophie Thomas at 23:17, position 28.
9 runners broke the 70% Age Grade this week and they were, in ascending order, John Tovell, Rob Robson, Lawrie Wilkin, Audrey Haywood, Sam Rushby, Michelle Beaumont, John Calvert, Colin Goulding and Mike Dennison.
Race director and results processor was once again Mark Devereux. Big thanks to him and all the volunteers.
