We nearly didn’t make it to the parkrun this morning as the road was closed, it wasn’t just us because there were people in front of us that were also held up. We were quite surprised to see that it was closed.
Today 100 women and 125 men did the parkrun, altogether this was 225 people which is better than weeks that it has been raining. Just at the end when the tail runner was finishing it started raining quite a lot.
There were 13 first timers and 27 new PBs which is good. Well done to junior Amber MORTIMER who did her 10th parkrun, Gavin ETHRINGTON-SMITH on his 50th parkrun and John PYMONT on his 100th parkrun. Bridget MAIN did her 200th Havant parkrun, she has done 291 parkruns altogether.
There were six funny times this week - 23:23 (Steve HARRIS), 27:27 (Nicola SIBLEY), 29:29 (David FORSTER), 33:33 (Denise WILLIAMS), 35:35 (Claire HOWARD) and 58:58 (Hilary SCHWAGER)!
I hope you enjoyed running watching the leaves falling off the trees.
