Brighton & Hove parkrun #648 22nd February 2020

The one where it was not actually raining!


Thank you all for bearing with us and being super-quiet for the pre-run announcements – it wasn’t easy without the megaphone, but Richard did an admirable job.  I’m wondering if we could hire him out for other events and parties?  Hopefully, by next Saturday we will have a new megaphone and you will be able to hear all the important info loud and clear.

This week 434 people ran, jogged and walked the course, of whom 51 were first timers and 50 recorded new Personal Bests. Representatives of 40 different clubs took part.

The event was made possible by 37 volunteers:

John P DOHERTY • Cathy FALL • Richard STADDEN • Christine GIBBONS • Cliff EVANS • Sean GIBSON • Paula CHESSELL • Justin DOBBS • Paul STRATTON • Kelvin MACDONALD • David KEMP • John R HARDING • Roger SMITH • Claire GILES • Brian RUSSELL • Andrew BROOKS • David MASKELL • Michelle BLACKWELL • Kevin DAY • John ELBOURNE • Richard CHESSELL • Derek RAVEN • Cal CHESTER • Lisa ELBOURNE • Vanessa KNIGHT • Ben BROOKE-TAYLOR • Alex SAWBRIDGE • Leigh SANDERS • Becky DICKINSON • Darren PRUCE • Toby PRUCE • Olivia PAVLIDES • Milo HODLER • Joseph HOLLAND • Daniel HOLLAND • Konstantinos MYTAFIDIS • Veronika SABOLOVA

Today's full results and a complete event history can be found on the Brighton & Hove parkrun Results Page.

Congratulations to those celebrating milestones (in parkruns, not age) this week:

Mike Fox - 300

Lloyd Hooper and Tania Tinsley – 250

Pocket rocket of the core team Alison Porges – 200

Alexander Rawlinson and David Freestone – 150

Well done to all who volunteered, ran and supported at the Brighton Half Marathon.

Have a flipping good time on pancake day, and we’ll see you on Saturday!
