parkrun report 503 – 14th March 2020 by Kevin TOMKINSON

Brueton parkrun
Event number 503
14th March 2020

Report
It’s been a few weekends since the last parkrun day and I hope you are all keeping safe until we meet again running laps round the park.

I was not at Brueton on this parkrun day as I visited Arrow Valley parkrun in Redditch, a 2 lap course like Brueton around a lake. I was in charge of the buggy again for this run and amazed myself with my result. 1. my time was a satisfying same minute as seconds (27:27) and 2. my finishing token was a nice round number (150) – little things please me.

This week there was 56 personal bests recorded.

Here is a list of the parkrunners who have completed over 50 parkruns who achieved a PB this week –

Matthew PRICE– 21:22 – 156 parkruns
Honglian WANG – 27:23 – 73 parkruns
