Last weeks parkrun was the final one on the summer course and the first time we have used pacers. Did this help you achieve a personal best? We had a field of 313 parkrunners. The fastest time was set by Jamie Hall who set a new pb with an incredible 16.13. He must have eaten at least 3 shredded wheats that morning!
Our tail runner came in at a more enjoyable time of 1.16.24 which allowed much more time to enjoy the wildlife in our beautiful Hinchingbrooke Park.
A big thanks to Charles for organising the pacers from 22 minutes to 30 minutes. For those of you who followed me on the 26 minute pace, apologies for doing the first kilometre 22 seconds too fast! I think Henry's encouragement at the first corner made me accidentally turn on my turbo charger button. I was a little alarmed to discover Bruce the 25min pacer was actually behind me at the 1.5k mark! I took the hint and eased off the gas to cross the finishing line at 26.13. Well done to those pacers who got closer to their target times than me.
So would you like to see pacers more often at Huntingdon parkrun?
Charles B 22m; A N Other 23m; Anthony N 24m; Bruce G 25m; John M 26m; David N 28m; Tom B 29m; Gillian D 30m.
