Happy 7th Birthday! Event 367 – 9 March 2019

580 Runners 29 Clubs Represented
21 First Timers 79 Set a new PB
37 First Time Tourists 42 Unknown (#DFYB)

For our 7th birthday, we set a new attendance record! It's a shame that the weather didn't help us out. Nevertheless, it was great to have the mayor and mayoress with us to celebrate. Unfortunately, the PA system decided that it didn't like the weather either and picked the most unhelpful time to stop working so I'm sorry if you couldn't hear the mayor speak at the end of the run briefing.

Thanks must also go to Jane Quinn, Carol Watson who designed our cake as well as everyone who chipped in to make sure there was something for everyone after the run.

Event 364 – 16 February 2019

561 Runners 30 Clubs Represented
33 First Timers 86 Set a new PB
24 First Time Tourists 42 Unknown (#DFYB)

On Saturday, Hayley Carruthers attempted to break the all-time ladies parkrun record of 15:50. This was set by Charlotte Arter at Cardiff parkrun on 5 January 2019. Hayley had been running well and had broken 16 minutes in December 2018. In the week before, she’d competed in the Armagh 3k race, finishing ninth in a time of 9:26. All the indications were that if she could maintain a similar pace, the record would be under threat.

Unfortunately, it wasn’t to be on this occasion. Nevertheless, BBC Midlands Today did a great piece about Hayley, which can be viewed at: https://youtu.be/XxJzzsrxKmw
