Run Director: Wole ODELE
The mercury dipped to an extra chilly 2℃ for the last run in November, perhaps, a timely reminder that Xmas is less than a month away. Run 520 saw 235 people (140 males, 95 females) safely run, jog and walk the course in cross-country conditions as the grassy sections were quite slippery. The turnout included 21 first timers.
Kudos to the speedy 16 who recorded new Personal Bests, with help from our 7 pacemaker volunteers on our special month-ending paced run. Two of the PB-makers, Mike BERRY - 26 runs, and Damian PARKER - 23 runs, have run here more than 20 times.
Congratulations to Julian BARTLETT on completion of his 150th run, 147 of which have been at Avery Hill. Julian celebrated his milestone run by volunteering as our 30 minutes pacer, clocked through the funnel at 29:50
Congratulations also to Emer TYNAN and John PAYNE, as they both got to the 50 run- milestone, to stake claims to the red club tee-shirt. Emer and John have run here 42 and 48 times, respectively.
Joshua JACKSON was our final milestone runner, completing his 10th run for a white club tee claim. All of Joshua's runs have been completed here.
