Ok so it wasn’t quite as nice as Nice but it was the warmest event we’ve had.
With Marathon season underway we thought we might have a lower turnout but obviously the sunshine inspired people to give us a try as we had 31 first timers in our 167 participants. We had tourists from Manchester and I spotted a Buckingham parkrun top too.
For the first time in a while we had a photographer and massive thanks to Dave for avoiding the flying bugs to take over 450 fab photos of you all – he seems to be a master of capturing those sought after flying feet! You can check them out here.
Now for the regular stats:
• 1 missing token – finish token 128 has gone walkabout
• 167 Finishers
• 31 new to Houghton Hall event
• 9 new to parkrun
• 44 PBs (a massive 26% of all finishers!)
• 12 members of the 100 club and 1 of the 250 club
• 14 clubs represented
• 1,139 Houghton Hall parkrunners have now covered 14,425km
• Age categories from under 10 to 70-74 (proving parkrun’s broad appeal)
• 49% female / 51% male (again showing how inclusive parkrun is)
• 12 unknown runners
A massive thanks to all the volunteers that made it another successful event:
