Braunstone parkrun #232 28th March 2015

What a fabulous morning for a PB, well for staggering 52 of you it was!!! Despite the dreadful weather, an amazing 345 runners turned up and ran the 2 lap course. We had 41 first timers this week, one of whom was Charnwood AC runner, George Burnett who crossed the finish line first in a super speedy time of 16.46!!! He was closely followed by his team mate, James Douglas who ran it in 16.49 and Wreake runner Alex Percy who bagged a PB time of 17.15. First lady across the line was Wreake runner Rachel Nealon in 20.35, which also got her a PB, very closely followed by Huncote Harrier, Nicki Nealon in 20.36, I’m assuming there was some family competitiveness going on here ;) Next was Katie Cooper, another PB runner in a time of 20.41. I’d also just like to welcome Paula Warrington, West End Runners, to the 50 club and Nick Humphreys to the 100 club. Massive well done to you all, and to everyone who took part!
