I thought I'd best get around to a run report before the next one came along!
I believe it was a wee bit chilly on Saturday - so I've got to start our run report with a fantastic thank you to all of our 25 volunteers who braved the cold to ensure that our parkrun could happen - THANK YOU - you are all legends!
We had 244 participants and 26 of you turned up for the first time in sub zero temperatures; which is fairly impressive. 8 of you decided that if you ran quicker, you could get into the cafe and the warmth faster so put down a pb. The most significant improvement this week goes to Mark Parish who took the best part of 4 minutes off his previous best time. (It was also great to see Emily Hart getting a PB - she has been on the scanning team for us more times than I can remember!)
Today's full results and a complete event history can be found on the Wimpole Estate parkrun Results Page.
However, our usual headlines. The men were led home by Brian O Connor who crossed the line in 18:55, whilst the women were led home in second place overall by Rachel Leah in a time of 20:02. Our fastest male junior was Robbie Andrews (11-14) who finished in 21:44 and our fastest female junior was Hannah Williams (15-17) who finished with a new pb in 25:47. Fantastic running everyone!
Our significant runs this week .... and yes we had a 250!! Come forward and take a bow Christopher Norfolk for over 5 years worth of fabulous parkrunning (and a new age category ;-)). Well done!
Our congratulations also go to Noah Bishop who reached his 100th, to Richard Jones for completing his 50th and to Euan Kenny for completing his 10th.
