Harding Warms Up For Cross Country With Stunning Time!

Well done to the 97 runners who took part in the Druridge Bay parkrun on a murky Saturday 10th October. And of course many thanks to all the marshals who helped out on the day, including those who helped out at the last minute to fill one or two of the vacant marshal spots!

Despite taking part in the Sherman Cup cross country fixture later in the day one of our Run Directors Ian HARDING came along to warm up. He warmed up with just a 16.31 5k! Ian has now been 1st finisher on 8 occasions, joining Rachelle FALLOON on the same number, and finished about 90 seconds ahead of his nearest rival. Simon SHERIDAN of west Glasgow club Garscube Harriers was 2nd finisher in 18.06, whilst Craig BATSON was next in 18.56. Due to the still conditions pbs were achieved by a number of our regular runners including Neil McANANY, Cris ATWELL, Carlos WERNER and Evan FALKOUS!

For the ladies 1st finisher and the highest WAVA score of the day was achieved by Carole PAGE. Carole finished in 22.31 and achieved a brilliant 80.38% score. 2nd finisher was Ali LIDDLE in 23.42, whilst Alnwick Harriers youngster Sophie ENSER was 3rd female in a course pb. Other regulars to score pbs included Frankie WILSON, Kymala THORNTON, Lorna STEPHENSON and regular helper Claire STEVENS!

See you all next week for more parkrun fun.
