Pace Setters

We reported 2 weeks' ago that Laura Hesketh managed to get into the top 5 of the fastest parkruns in the UK with her performance at Preston.  This week it was the men's turn and we had 2 people in the top 6!  Former course recorded holder Andy Benson made a return to the park with team mate Daniel Bebbington and the 2 flew round with Andy finishing just 12 seconds away from a new course record, which in those conditions was quite remarkable.

*parkrun is a run not a race remember, but well done guys.

Pace setters

Course record holder Rob Danson paid a visit to the park on Saturday accompanied by fellow speedster Laura Hesketh.  As we all know, parkrun is not about speed, it's a social run, but ....... Laura managed to feature in the top 5 fastest women across the UK parkruns on Saturday in the exalted company of GB athletes Faye Fullerton and Bryony Haines.
