Milton Keynes Parkrun event number 364 25th February 2017

460 runners experienced the new and improved finish line today. The nature of the bushes was good and the simple walk back to the cars did not affect finishing runners which was even better.

Let parkrun know if you like this new finish by visiting their facebook page

38 new or visiting runners today which is good to see. Hope you enjoyed the course and let us know how you got on by visiting our facebook page.

47 new PBs were also recorded and this included first place himself: Max Perry with a time of 17:41. This also included Andy Riddy with 32:49.

Representatives from many different running clubs came today including Vegan Runners and Vale of Aylesbury AC

Parkrun has the idea of getting a defibrillator… just in case! It does occasionally happen and parkrun would like to be prepared for it. They cost around £500, therefore if everyone who regularly runs donated around £1 then it’d be sorted.

If you are interested in donating, ask the parkrun director.

Congrats to…

  • Joshua Bennett with his 10th
  • Jonathon Wiles, Tom Adams and Meyrick Field with their 50ths

Milton Keynes parkrun event number 358 14th January 2017

Today was a cold icy run for the 441 runners who came today. There sure was a lot going on as well.

Ian from Redway Runners had his birthday today and he is moving away to the south coast so today was also potentially his last MK parkrun (unless he plans to drive up here every Saturday). If you saw a group of runners all called Ian then you may have even spotted the real Ian hiding amongst them.

31 new or visiting runners today. Hope you enjoyed the course and let us know how you got on by visiting our facebook page.

It seems that the cold weather seems to make people run faster! 62 new PBs were recorded, maybe it’s because they wanted to get home so quick. These included Callum Wilcox with 23:35 and also Hannah Clay with 29:30.

Representatives from many different running clubs came today including Wolds Veteran RC and 26.2 RRC

A gentle reminder to all runners who have finished their parkrun to just be aware of the other parkrunners who are still completing the course. Sometimes the path needs a bit more room for some runners who are still going. Do encourage them as well as we all like a bit of support.

Congrats to…

  • P Mullinder, James Finlayson, Kathryn Elvidge and Martin Davey with 50 parkruns
  • 250 Parkruns for the one, the only… William Shippin!!
