Heslington Run Report Event #102

If 23mph winds are your thing then Saturday was a real treat as 330 runners, joggers and walkers were propelled, blasted and wafted all over Lakeside Way.
The rain did stay away though - perhaps to the disappointment of Heslington first-timer Albie Gray, representing Great Britain Underwater Hockey (I'm intrigued!).

The squally conditions did not stop James White as he breezed home in 16:59, 54 seconds ahead of the second finisher, while Georgina Weston was first lady.

Georgina was 'taking it easy' by pacing 20 minutes, and she used that reserve of energy to go out and win the Snake Lane 10 mile race in Pocklington in one hour and two minutes on Sunday.

Very well done Georgina, and congratulations to everyone who wound their way around Snake Lane from everyone at Hes.

Back to parkrun and the mind boggles at the combined figure of 1,016 parkruns that Chris Jones and Liz Jones of Hyde Park Harriers have completed after finishing on Saturday.

There were also milestones for Kevin Thomas, reaching his 50th parkrun, while Tom Kingscott clocked his 200th.

Finally, as I write this, the forecast for next weekend is snow joke so don't forget your ice skates, or your barcode.
