The lost parkrun run reports #26 aka parkrun #45

We took a trip in the tardis this week away from October 15

We got diverted via the rehearsals for the first episodes of Eastenders

That should never again be seen

Then to Northern Ireland when the Ult was just a teen

Finally,after turning it off,waiting 10 seconds and turning it back on again

We reached our penultimate lost run report parkrun,don`t think there was any rain

It was at the end of May 2016,a warm and lovely morn

No sign though of Shane Warne

"Bowling SHANE!" was not a shout to be heard

Although we did have 239 of you being well supported,with Joe Boden finishing third.


Hello and welcome to the last but one missing/historical/lost run report,the 28th May,2016. One more next week and then they`ll all have their own questionable poem,first timers,pb mentions and volunteer nicknames.When our relatives discover these in future times,as well as being well and truly flummoxed,they`ll at least be able to find out when granddad or grandma got their 24:28 pb at Birkenhead parkrun.So there`s that.Hope you`ve enjoyed them anyway.

Can you all please log your #notparkruns please? After not being that fussed ,being paired against Liverpool in the World cup of UK towns and cities quarter final (fixed!.....allegedly) we`ve shifted our attentions to this competition as our way into European parkrun qualification and thanks to the efforts of Andy "Marvin`s dad" Everett,Run in Wirral and others we will be trying to crack the top 10. There`s still time to vote @worldcupoftowns on twitter for Birkenhead but we`re 10% behind and there isn`t much time left.

Commiserations to Stuart Rickers for not being knighted for his services to shorts. Shockingly overlooked.


Onto the results.

Our first finisher (male) was Phil Langan of Wirral AC in 15:52,then Andrew Gawne in 16:19 and Joe Boden of Wallasey AC in 16:43

Our first finisher (female) was Lisa Grantham of Pensby Runners in 19:47(15th),then Helen Stansfield of Wallasey AC with a pb of 20:10(18th) and Katie Bagley(19th),also in 20:10 and also a pb!

20:10 as two runners got it with pb`s,is our historical time/date. Sachin Tendulkar scored the first double century in one day international crickey,the Chilean miners were rescued and Germany won the Eurovision song contest,4-3 on penalties after extra time.
