Well, England are still in the World Cup, Summer is in full flow and Hazelwood parkrun is now a regular fixture in the Sunbury calendar. This week we welcomed 126 participants that either ran, jogged and walked the course, of whom 31 were first timers and an amazing 52 recorded new Personal Bests. Representatives of 14 different clubs took part. We were also lucky enough to be joined by parkrun founder Paul Sinton-Hewitt, following the run he stuck around for coffee and a chat with the local runners.
We did have to make a slight alteration to the course due to the fact that a beer tent was occupying our finish funnel location. I would like to say the presence of copious amounts of alcohol didn't affect our concentration, however we did experience a slight timing issue which meant that a small number of times we're inaccurate. Luckily, our crack team of results gurus were on the case and managed to reissue the correct times.
Our first male finisher was David HALLOWAY with an impressive time of 16:30 and who now holds the course record. Our first female finisher was Kathryn LOVEGROVE who ran a time of 20:45 which was also a PB!
As ever, massive thanks go to our volunteers: Carolyn LOVEGROVE • Robert LOVEGROVE • Adrian CLEMENT • Andrea CAVALHEIRO • Rohan KOTHARY • Matthew SARTIN • Mel WILCOCK • Ted LANGHAM • Phil WIGGLESWORTH • Matthew THAIN • Claire MEDLEY • Ethan SHAFFELBURG • Lil THAIN • Maxine SELLS • Kelly KOTHARY.
Without our amazing hi-vis heroes, we wouldn't be able to put this event on each week. If you can spare an hour of your time on a Saturday morning, it would be greatly appreciated by all.
Today's full results and a complete event history can be found on the Hazelwood parkrun Results Page.
Don't forget, after each run we head into the Hazelwood bar for post event tea/coffee and bacon or sausage rolls. We look forward to welcoming you all back to Hazelwood parkrun again next week.
