Now That’s What I Call Quite Muddy.
The last parkrun of the year in Bruntwood Park was probably the wettest under foot so far with generous quantities of gloopy mud. Fun if you like that sort of challenge!
24 people ran, with numbers being swelled by the visiting Chowdhury family – lovely to see a family of all ages having fun together!
The event was made possible by 12 volunteers. Thank you to: Adam BROWN • Helen BROWN • Helen RENNIE • Stefano BOZZI • Darren NELSON-HALL • Clare TAYLOR • Bethan WISE • Myles HEYWOOD • Leanne HACKNEY • Richard COULBY • Jason LAWLER • Aran PUNTER
Not surprisingly no PBs were recorded.
Oliver Bernstein led the field home (20:27) on his 2nd visit to Cheadle Hulme. James Cooper in 2nd place (22:02) just pipped Adam Brown (22:05) [this result was allegedly the subject of a small wager between the Run Director and Timer]. Gemma Davison (29:19) was first lady followed by Helen Wise (32:17) and then Aneesa Chowdhury (43.56).
Cheadle Hulme parkrun is trialling new timing and scanning software based on mobile phones. This could reduce the cost of setting up new parkrun events, rendering expensive stopwatches and barcode scanners obsolete. It has been very successful over half a dozen events. Yesterday we had a small hiccup when a file with scanned positions didn’t e-mail through. Thank you for your patience, awaiting your official positions and times. After a few frantic phone calls and text messages and screen shots, results were completed and Stefano could smile again.
