The run report today was kindly written by Laura Stevens, a visitor from one of our neighbour events, Crane Park.
The slightly warmer weather this week brought a healthy field of 109 runners to Hazelwood parkrun, all whom completed the 5km slightly soggy course. The field today comprised of 17 first timers to Hazelwood, 4 of which were running their first ever parkrun, congrats to Simon Koppens, Patti Rogers, Adam Watford & Ava Kelly-Happs, and 7 new PB’s we recorded.
I myself was a first-time tourist to Hazelwood and I have to say they’re a very friendly bunch. All very welcoming and wonderful to talk to.
First male finisher this week was Paul R Williams in a speedy time of 20:36, and our first lady finisher was Fiona Davis in a spectacular time of 25:19.
I do enjoy looking through times for aesthetically pleasing numbers so two special shout outs to David Gladstone who finished in a beautiful 23:23 in 18th place, and to Anna-Lise Christmas who finished in 32:23 in 84th place.
Today’s run was made possible by the following wonderful volunteers:
Steve BARRINGTON, Mark COWELL, Nikki CRAWFORD, Merilyn DAVIS, Benji DUNCAN, Steven HALL, Kelly KOTHARY, John MAXEN, Dorothy Agness MCLENNAN, Claire MEDLEY, Uday PATEL, Matthew SARTIN, Callum STEWART, Lorna STEWART, Lucy SUMMERS
Hazelwood will be celebrating their 1st years birthday very soon, fingers crossed we’ll be back then, if not that weekend then soon, a lovely course, lovely people one not to be missed!
