parkrun report – 19th October 2019 by Adam HAYES

Brueton parkrun
Event number 483
19th October 2019

Report

This Saturday, 428 people (including 24 first timers ) ran, walked and jogged the Brueton parkrun course. It was ideal “exercise weather” resulting in 64 recorded PB’s.
The numbers were slightly down, probably due to it clashing with England playing Australia in the Rugby World Cup quarter finals. Of course, England beat Australia 40-16! This coming Saturday England’s semi finals match with New Zealand also clashes with parkrun!
This parkrun was 12 days before Britain attempts to leave the EU again!
Saturday was a good day for running because the weather was chilly, but dry. On the Sunday, I was played a badminton match for my club, and I won all 3 games I played. Unfortunately, that morning I was playing a rugby match against Tamworth, and my team lost.

5 Random numbers

England won 40-16 and the closest to 40:16 was Joan IBLE with a time of 40:44.
With 12 days till Brexit, in 12th was Paul BENTLEY with 19:57.
It was the legendary Margaret SMITH’s 335th run and in 335th was Sally WALTON with 33:40

In 184th place was Chris WAKE with 27:59
