This week 329 people ran, jogged and walked the course, of whom 22 were first timers and 46 recorded new Personal Bests. Representatives of 20 different clubs took part.
Special mention goes to Graham Purdye, over 60 category who sped home in 20.01 and scored a whopping 80.85% age grading. I know parkrun is not a race but being in the same age category as Graham I always endeavour to keep as close to him as possible whether its cross country , on the road or track . I'll need to up my training if I'm going to get close again!
Also welcome back to Stuart Pelling and Sian who've been out of the country for 6 months now. Stuart's only got 2 parkruns to go to get his 100th.
Well done to all those who ran and ran/walked today. And congratulations to all of you who achieved a PB.
Good luck to all those running in the London Marathon tomorrow and see you next week.
Still hoping to start on the wider grass area if the ground continues to dry out.
