Milton Keynes parkrun (Event 433)
Another hot and humid Saturday for a parkrun and despite England’s exploits in the World Cup, no one opted to run in a waistcoat! This week 493 people ran, jogged and walked the course. Great to see a toddler come in 10thposition, ably helped by Andrew PEEK – quite an impressive feat pushing a buggy in the heat! Travelling at that speed the child needs to start wearing a crash helmet! Well done.
There were 45 were first timers and 66 recorded new Personal Bests. Representatives of 27 different clubs took part. We also had some milestones today at the parkrun. Congratulations to Paul BOYER and Ellen GULLIKSEN for completing their 50th, Manny SUCHA for completing his 100thand Stacy CLEMES for celebrating her 40th birthday and 150thparkrun together! Look out for a couple of approaching milestones – Dave JONES, Melanie JORDAN and Mark SZATKOWSKI on 49 and Andrew STRINGER on 99!
