Great conditions (mostly)!

Today at Roundshaw the conditions were fairly decent. The sky was overcast (mostly), it wasn’t too hot (mostly) and the wind wasn’t blowing to strongly (mostly). These conditions and the hard work of the athletes lead to 15 PBs and allowed 7 athletes to complete their first ever parkrun.

The PBs were: Tommy Payne took off 116 seconds, Mary Larkin took off 27 seconds, Helen Wildman took off 8 seconds, Sarah Ferriroli took off 18 seconds, Jacob Welham - took off 13 seconds, Simon Daily took off 103 seconds, Jessica Shadbolt took off 2 seconds, Raghav Menon took off 13 seconds, Michael Jenkins took off 89 seconds, Lesley Down took off 62 seconds, Rahul Menon took off 24 seconds, Gary Evons took off 21 seconds, Periasamy Selvaraj took off 23 seconds, Gart Harrison took off 13 seconds and Grace Charley took off 90 seconds.

Today two juniors, Thalia Ferguson and Raghav Menon, completed their tenth parkruns and Kathryn Ferguson completed her 50th parkrun. Congratulations to Lesley Down who broke the old 75-59 age grade record with a new age grade of 59.83%.
