What a lovely morning for a parkrun! 178 runners, of whom 15 had never run a parkrun before and a further 34 parkrunners who were visiting us for the first time - almost as if there was some kind of event nearby that runners are interested in.
Your run director today outrageously didn't thank the volunteers during the run briefing so let me thank them here and now: a massive thank you to Kathy BROWN • Don BENNETT • Paul LEWIS • Tony LOBO • Ken AGNEW • Luka MELON • Mike BRISTOW • Sabine GAITZSCH NAIR & Deborah HAROUMA. Thank you!
Today's full results and a complete event history can be found on the Wanstead Flats parkrun Results Page. I think the stand out performance was John HOLMES who took three minutes off the VM70-74 course record. Well done!
Sebastian ANTHONY (SM20-24) of West Suffolk AC, was first over the line in 15:53 - first appearance.
Oliver WILLIAMS (SM30-34) of Les Croupiers RC, was second over the line in 15:54.
Jake CALLIS (SM18-19) of Orion Harriers, was third over the line in 16:09 - has been first to finish on 3 previous occasions.
Justine ANTHONY (SW20-24) of West Suffolk AC, was first (10th overall) over the line in 18:28 - first appearance.
Jane ROSE (VW35-39) (Unattached) was second (29th overall) over the line in 21:04.
Christine ANTHONY (VW50-54) of West Suffolk AC, was third (30th overall) over the line in 21:11.
The three highest age grades were recorded by:
Christine ANTHONY (VW50-54) – 83.24% for the time 21:11 (30th overall).
Jake CALLIS (SM18-19) – 82.56% for the time 16:09 (third overall).
Sebastian ANTHONY (SM20-24) – 82.06% for the time 15:53 (first overall).
Is there anyone that is good with needle and thread? Strikes me that if someone could come up with WANSTEAD FLATS x2 as patches we could once again use our parkrun flag which we have not been allowed to use since the sponsor changed. Ask me on Saturday. Cheers Paul
