Has spring finally arrived?

Last week we had clear skies but a biting wind. Today the wind was still frisky and the skies were grey but the temperature had hauled itself into double figures! Our runners are beginning to shed their winter layers and hopefully we will be into shorts and t-shirts soon.

We had 145 runners this morning of whom 16 were new to parkrun and another 11 new to Buckingham. There were 3 dogs running (and swimming) as well as our doggy marshall at the start of The Loop.

First back (for the 17th time) was Mark Palser in a time of 18:06, followed by Tom West in 18:20 and David Hook in 18:29.

First lady home (11th place) was Emily Bowen in a time of 20:57, next lady (20th place) was Emily West in 22:32 and our third lady back (21st place) was Victoria Broadbent in 22:35.

30 runners recorded personal bests - that's 21% of the field :-)

Easter Saturday next week and there may be a little treat at the finish.
