 Event 187 – 1st October Report

Weather-wise, you’d be forgiven for thinking today was mid-July. Maybe it was too hot for some runners with numbers slightly down on last week.

Today, we had 227 finishers; among them we had 42 PBs, 19 first timers and representatives of 22 different athletics clubs. 
Since Cardiff parkrun started back in February 2008, we’ve had 4024 runners from 235 different clubs complete the race 25,669 times covering a distance of 128,385 km.

In the men’s race, Matthew David WELLS (Bridgend AC) won for the second time in 16:41. Richard WILDER (San Domenico RRC) took second by 20 seconds, recording 17:01. Rob SAGE, (Les Croupiers RC) placed third in a time of 17:07.

In the women’s race, Gwenno Alice BROWN (Unattached) recorded her second victory in her fourth race in a time of 18:42. Gwenno beat Melissa DANDO (Les Croupiers) by 40 seconds recording 19:22, who finished in the same time as Libby O'DUFFY (Les Croupiers).


In today's Age Graded performances, the best Age Grade scores were from Scott HOWELL (Les Croupiers) in 83.91%, Michael MURPHY (Les Croupiers) in 83.53% and Huw D ROBERTS (Bridgend AC) 81.24%.
