 Event 188 – 8th October Report

This week’s decline in numbers coincided with Wales’ victory in the rugby and the Gwent League race on Sunday.

Today, we had 160 runners; among them we had 15 first timers, 42 PBs and representatives of 19 different athletics clubs took part. Since Cardiff parkrun started in February 2008, we’ve had 4,039 different runners, including participants from 235 athletics clubs, complete the race 25,829 times covering a total distance of 129,145 km.  

In the men’s race, Rob SAGE (Les Croupiers RC) was first in 16:31, taking his first win in his 61st appearance. Sigmund FRIGATE (unattached) was second, also in a time of 16:31. 
Andrew HODGSON (Brackla Harriers) was third in 16:57.

In the women’s race, Jazmine BRIGANTI (Bridgend AC) was first in 20:44 – taking her first win in her 4th appearance. Ruth TREHARNE (Islwyn RC) was second in 21:52. Kathleen WALKER (unattached) was third in 22:05.

The best Age Grade scores came from
 Sigmund FRIGATE (unattached) with 82.64%,
 Andrew HODGSON (Brackla Harriers) with 80.53% and Elio LEPORE (Les Croupiers RC) with 80.52%.

Young & Old ~ our youngest competitors today were Matthew Peter TURNBULL (Cardiff AAC), Brandon Connor HOLLEY and Benjamin THORNE (both unattached) in the JM14 age category,
In the JW14 category were Jazmine BRIGANTI (Bridgend AC) and Bethany SELF (unattached).
At the other end of the spectrum we had Clare JOHNSON (Les Croupiers) in the VW65-69 category and Terry VICKERY (unattached) in the VM70-74 category.

In the points competition, Mark RICHMOND’s lead over Richard WILDER remains at 29 points as neither raced this weekend. Oliver M WILLIAMS also didn’t race this weekend, and, as a result, has been overtaken by Rob SAGE. Sally WILDER remains top of the women’s competition despite not running, but Patricia JONES has reduced the deficit whilst also extending her lead over Dawn LAU in third place.
