Braunstone parkrun #215 – Saturday 29th November

parkrun number 215, took place last weekend with all the volunteering roles taken up by the members of Huncote Harriers running club. For some of them, it was the first time they had volunteered at a parkrun, and they all said that they really enjoyed themselves, and will be offering again soon.One member said it was gratifying to hear people say thank you marshal. So many thanks to everyone at Huncote for making it another sucessful run.
First over the line this week was prolific first finisher Matt Adcock from Hermitage Harriers in 16:40, making it look so easy as usual!!  Second over the line was Steve Gibson another runner who is used to finishing first at Braunstone, and usually on the podium in a time of 17:19, very closely followed by Andy Peet of Wigston Phoenix in 17:20
The ladies run turned out to be an even closer affair, with first timer Ashley Berry running for Loughborough Students taking the honours in 18:03 and 8th place overall. She was followed by Estelle Damant of Ranelagh Harriers in 18:09 and 10th overall, and 11th overall and 3rd lady was Josephine Brysting again from Loughborough in 18.38. So as you can see this week we had some very strong, quick ladies running.
In the junior category first male was Pascal Bouttier Butler in 18:01 and 7th overall, and first junior female was Ysabel Drewitt in 24:17
We had 28 first timers this week, and an amazing 58 pb's
Once again our thanks go out to Huncote Harriers for providing the volunteers, and
hopefully they will be taking over again in the new year
