After a slightly drier week of weather, a group of 64 enthusiastic parkrunners descended on Hanworth for its 46th parkrun. Overnight rain meant that the course was still soggy in places with the mud producing some challenging conditions as runners struggled to find the quickest routes while remaining upright!
Today we had visitors from a number of parkruns, including Abingdon, Bracknell and Roundshaw Downs. According to the results, 9 tourists visited Hanworth for the first time.
We hope that you enjoyed it and will visit us again.
There were two brand new first timers to parkrun today - George and John Mockett. Well done to both of you and welcome to the Parkrun family!
Top three male finishers today were Jonathan Mainwaring in a time of 20:21, Alan Lightfoot (20:36) and Adam Hughes (20:42). Top three female finishers were Vanessa Arthur in a time of 24:44, Poppy Wilson (25:03) and Kulwinder Aujla (25:41).
Congratulations to the 9 finishers who achieved a pb today – Paul Davis, Sam Peacock, Leigh Armstrong, Jim Holder, Dave Senneck, Christine Jelly, Tanya Mockett, Alice Mockett and Bhagya Gubbala.
Fantastic support as ever was provided by Hanworth’s amazing volunteer team
