Daventry parkrun Event number 159 21st October 2017

This week at Daventry parkrun I was supported by 26 fabulous volunteers , who were:

Stella-Maria THOMAS • Gill HOWE • Jackie HESKETH • David SMITH •  Steve BROOKS • Matilda EDGE • Angela MOORE • Ginette PILKINGTON • Keith MOREMAN • David TARBUCK • Daniel MEAKIN • Paul BARKER • Anna HARRINGTON • Huw HARRINGTON • Amy BADKIN • Charlotte ROSE • Andrew HALL • Melissa TIMMS • Emily WRIGHT • Grace HEWITSON • Tabitha LUNTZ • Rachel MUMFORD • Joanne MYTTON • Jon MURRAY • Angela GRAY • Angus GRAY

Despite very slippy and windy conditions we were joined by 205 people who ran, jogged or walked the course, of whom 16 were first timers and 35 recorded new Personal Bests. Congratulations to you all.

Today's full results and a complete event history can be found on the Daventry parkrun Results Page.

Male placings:
Benjamin HYAMS (SM30-34) (Unattached) was first over the line in 17:34 - 34th time in 53 appearances.
Dewi HALCROW (SM20-24) (Unattached) was second over the line in 18:53 - has been first to finish on 14 previous occasions.
Gary WALLACE (VM45-49) of Rugby & Northampton AC, was third over the line in 19:05 - has been first to finish on 4 previous occasions.

Female placings:
Zoe KEMP (VW35-39) of Human Energy AC, was first (10th overall) over the line in 21:25 - third time in 6 appearances.
Louise BALLOCH (SW20-24) (Unattached) was second (18th overall) over the line in 22:23. Well done Louise on the PB!
Annette RUSSELL (VW40-44) of Daventry Road Runners, was third (24th overall) over the line in 23:02 - has been first to finish on 5 previous occasions.

The three highest age grades were recorded by:
David CHANDLER (VM60-64) – 74.87% for the time 21:37 (12th overall).
Gary WALLACE (VM45-49) – 74.85% for the time 19:05 (third overall).
Mike SMALLWOOD (VM70-74) – 74.35% for the time 23:43 (33rd overall).

Just in case no-one has noticed, I love volunteering at parkrun (especially the bit on my ladder) almost as much as I enjoy taking part.  I have included my medical condition on my barcode as a "parkrun addict" and am sure it is contagious.

It is very rewarding to see so many people enjoying themselves and the friendly atmosphere, both during the run and in Leisure Lakes afterwards, drinking tea and coffee and consuming cakes, keeps me coming back for more.

See you all soon, with your barcodes.

Christopher Edge (Run Director this week)
