Braunstone parkrun #241 30th May 2015

Oh what a beautiful morning, oh what a beautiful day, I’ve got a wonderful feeling, there’s loads going to turn up today!!! And there certainly was, 368 of you infact!!! And the sunshine must have put a spring in your step as a whopping 70 runners got themselves a PB, well done guys, totes amaze!! It was lovely to see we had 37 ‘newbies’ at Braunstone. Hope you all enjoyed it and are eager to come back next week.

This week we congratulate Paul Bentley on reaching his 100th parkrun milestone. Well done Paul :)


There were some super speedy runners out there this week!! First to finish was Charnwood AC runner Pete Swain in an amazing 16.30. He was followed by Chris Jordan of Leicester Coritanians who bagged a PB time of 17.09 then first timer David Evans from Serpentine RC in a time of 17.24. The ladies were lead home by the juniors this week. Wreake runner Sophie Thorpe ran a PB time of 20.23 closely followed by team mate Destiny Nicolson in 20.38. Leicester Coritanian junior Grace Smith made her parkrun debut by bagging 3rd place in 20.53. Well done to you all, and everyone who ran.

We had a few ‘unknown’ runners again this week. Please remember to bring your barcodes. It seems a shame to put the effort in to run and not have an official time to show for it. You also get a step nearer to owning one of parkruns fabulous milestone t-shirts ;)

And last, but by no means least, a massive THANK YOU to this weeks volunteers, without whom this free event wouldn’t happen!! You’re all fabulous and very much appreciated. If anyone would like to help out in future then please let us know via our facebook page or email us at

See you all next week and DFTB!!!!
