Brueton parkrun
Event number 451
9th March 2019


Well done one and all 570 of you who ran this week. The sunny but breezy start gave way to quite brutal windy and rainy conditions out on the course. Thankfully there was a little sun afterwards to make up for eye watering experience.

Congratulations to couple, Eric and Jeanette Robathan who completed their 250th Parkrun today. Well done to all our new club members, especially the volunteers John Garside and Chris Raw. Well done also to a group of teachers from St. Peter’s Catholic School who graduated from a 0-5K running programme by completing Brueton parkrun. Led by Amanda Crees, Chemistry teacher and member of Knowle and Dorridge Running Club, the group have trained 3 times per week as a group and solo to reach the 5K goal in just 7 weeks. Well done to Kate Fleming (Physics) and Lorraine Pearce (Business Studies) who are both new to running, for completing their first parkrun. Congratulations to Simon Palin (Maths) who got a PB and Gloria Fuentes (Spanish) for coming back to running after a few months off. Thank you as well to Matt Horsfield (Maths) for supporting the group sessions and being there to cheerlead. And thanks to Jamie Allen and Alex Eden (both Physics) for coming along to run and support team St. Peter’s. This is the second year that a group of staff have committed to the challenge, which is an achievement in itself but especially so in cold weather, dark evenings and in the midst of a very busy half term. The group have committed to continuing their runs every Monday, so we hope to see them again at Brueton soon.
