Basildon parkrun Run Report #297

Welcome to Basildon parkrun Run Report 297, this week sent in by Run Director Dave Mullender!

Sorry it’s a little late, Microsoft doesn’t love me anymore!

First, a BIG SHOUT OUT to Pauline Mackenzie-Moore on her 100th volunteering role.
Also many thanks to all our volunteers that helped to make it possible, for another great Saturday at Basildon parkrun.

This week, we thought we could be in for a shake up in the top places, as Tey Lynn-Jones was in the lead on lap 2, but Rob Vinicome got his legs working, and stormed home as our first finisher.

First Lady was Sophie Wetheridge, who finished in under 21 minutes.

We saw tourists from Leicester and Manchester, but the most miles has to go to Australia.

In total 162, ran, jogged and walked around a wet and muddy Northlands Park, all made possible by 21 volunteers.

We saw 25 first timers, 15 PBs, from 19 different clubs, so very well done all.

Thanks Dave!
