Perth parkrun report 31st Mar 2018

Number 6000 is on the cards.
Saturday was a major milestone day for Perth park runners. Juniors Olivia Hughes and Hannah Baughan completed their 10th run, Olivia scoring a pb time. David Fisher, Vivienne McCinnon, Ella Webley and Glasgow tri-club visitor Cheryl Stewart all notching up their 50th run.
Other visitors included Adam Raffel from York who was fist finisher in 17m14s, plus representatives from Fulham, Conway and Burnley.
Lorraine MacPherson was first woman finisher for the 18th time - 29th in 21m25s.
It was a great day for running with a chasing breeze down the back straight, but once again the soggy going out by Muirton forced us to use the N Inch circuit.
This week 278 people ran, jogged and walked the course, of whom 23 were first timers and 41 recorded new Personal Bests. Representatives of 24 different clubs took part.
The event was made possible by 17 volunteers:
Simon FINCH • Donald SHAW • Bill MELVILLE • Kenneth G N STEWART • Jenny ALDHEIM • Graeme PARKER • Lewis WILSON • Steven BONTHRONE • Michael SPENCE • Stuart J EARL • Aileen TRAVERS • Brian SPENCE • Julia ROBERTSON • Charlotte FRASER • Sarah SWAN • Lorna MACINNES • Janet ROSS
Today's full results and a complete event history can be found on the Perth parkrun Results Page.
Next week we are due to have our 6000th individual run since we started,

Run Report – 17 Mar 2018

Perth parkrun 225. 17 March 2018

Another day of miserable, cold weather. But, as someone commented, we have come through this winter without a cancellation – not a lot of events can claim that.

We used the route twice round the Inch again and 193 people completed the 5k. The first person home was Sam Fernando, who has now finished first in Perth on 6 occasions and has completed 49 parkruns. He was followed by Robert Jenkins, running in Perth for the 5th time this year and achieving his best position so far. In third place was Kyle Jordan who has run in all 12 events so far in 2018. All three are 19 or under with the ‘older’ contingent led in by Karen Kennedy (VW 45-49) in 4th position, doing a bit of parkrun tourism from Falkirk. We also had visitors from Inverness and Camperdown. 20 different clubs were represented. Five of the 16 first-timers were doing a parkrun for the first time – for you, conditions can only get better, so don’t give up!

Congratulations to Anne Stewart, Gilly Harrison, Colin Carnson and Rory Carnson, our milestone achievers this week.

Thanks, as always to the 17 intrepid volunteers who ensured the event took place – and even provided some musical encouragement at one of the marshal points!

 

Perth Parkrun 10 March

Event number 224

From snow to heavy rain! Well done all the runners, and many thanks to the volunteers.
I hope runners enjoyed a bit of a change as we ran the North Inch course "backwards".
At least you'll be developing the muscles on the other side of the body!

Milestones this week were chalked up by Katie King (50), Philip Bryers (100), Lorraine MacPherson (150) and Simon Finch (200). Special mentions also went to volunteers in line for their 25 T-shirt - Caroline Hogarth, Jane Oliphant (at Perth Parkrun; many more at Junior Parkrun) and Lorner and Matthew Malcolmson.
Apologies that I forgot to mention Tracey Greer's hen party. Hopefully Tracey got a few cheers on her way round.

Course damage

I had a look at the alternative Muirton course we used yesterday. The 100+m after the path running behind houses unto the football pitch showing signs of wear and tear. Maybe a bit of taping could steer runners wider out here. - Bill Melville
