Panshanger parkrun No 178 : Saturday 20th January 2018

Today 239 people ran, jogged and walked the course, of whom 23 were first timers and 19 recorded new Personal Bests, braving this morning's muddy course and the rain. Thanks to the large umbrella shared by one of our volunteers, my RD notes didn't get completely soaking wet!

We have also recorded a lovely 'Get well Sue' message for one of our RDs, Sue Fletcher, who is recovering from an injury. The message came out loud and clear on the video posted to Sue, so thank you all!

Two runners celebrated their 50th parkrun, including: Hugh TURNER and Steve BENVENISTE, and from the juniors George GOLLOP ran his 10th.

The second finisher for the men was Neil Hume (Garden City Runners) with 17:47, followed by Robert Casserley (Garden City Runners) with 19:13 Mark Dipper (Ware Joggers) with 19:48. For the ladies; Lucy Barnes (Ipswich Harriers) was first lady with 19:13, followed by Freya Stapleton (Herts Phoenix AC) with 19:25 and Lottie Rowedder (Harlow AC) with 20:09.

Panhanger Parkrun – Event no. 176 – 6th January 2018 – The cold, misty one

Panshanger Park was shrouded in mist for the duration of this weeks event providing funky running conditions for all athletes, volunteers and spectators. The frozen ground was crunchy rather than muddy so underfoot conditions were pretty good with the added challenge of not being able to see how far was left to run up the finish hill due to the mist!

This week 318 people ran, jogged and walked the course, of whom 35 were first timers and 29 recorded new Personal Bests. Representatives of 16 different clubs took part.

First over the line this week was Neil Hume in 18:00, 2nd was Mark Redmond and 3rd was Mark Dipper
First lady home was Harriet Kealy in 21:48, 2nd was Magda Bobon, 3rd was Barbara Kubis-Labiak
Results by age grading are Neil Hume 1st, Mark Redmond 2nd, and Panshanger RD Gary O'Leary 3rd

The event was made possible by 23 volunteers who did am outstanding job as ever made harder by by the cool conditions. Many thanks to each and every one of them :-)
