Event number 120
14th April 2018
This week 138 people ran, jogged and walked the course, of whom 15 were first timers and 25 recorded new Personal Bests. Representatives of 11 different clubs took part.
This week was noticeably drier than recent weeks, hopefully this will continue and the boggy woods will begin to dry out. A big thank you to the parkrun fairy who added some woodchip to the very slippery bend at the start of the woods and did some other little jobs on the route.
This week we had 15 first timers, this was probably in part due to the cancellation of Newport Riverfront. As a result a couple of Lliswerry Runners came to try us out. I hope you enjoyed a bit of mud for a change. At least we could still offer them a river to run alongside. On a similar theme, we had a visitor from Lakeside Runners.
Pete Woodward took a break from his parkrun tourism this week and came to visit Lydney and chalked up another first finish, his 10th at Lydney. Pete has a serious parkrun addiction. He has run 338 times across in 154 locations. 144 in the UK, 3 in New Zealand, 2 in Poland and France and 1 in Denmark, Ireland and Italy.
Sarah Lauder was the first female finisher. She was a visitor from the cancelled Newport Riverfront.
25 people recorded personal bests. A big shout out to the entire Insall Family who all manged to improve their times. Mother and daughter Maria and Katrina Probert both had a good week. They are recent graduates of the Lydney 0-5k group. Well done to everyone else who achieved a PB this week.
I am not aware of any milestones this week.
There are some of our runners who are doing either London or Newport in the next two weeks. Good luck to all of them.
