It was rather cloudy (yet still very warm!) on Saturday, still that didn't deter 284 of you visiting Highbury Fields for some parkrun action.
We had 69 first timers, 28 PBS and 2 milestones with Sarah Goodacre (first time at the fields - come back again soon!) and Jane Guidon both reaching their 50th parkruns.
The front runners were;
Rob SMYTH (SM30-34) was first over the line in 17:24
Jack BROTCHIE (SM30-34) of Herne Hill Harriers, was second over the line in 18:12
Francesco MELLONI (SM20-24) was third over the line in 18:14.
Julia JOHNSON (VW50-54) of Penistone Footpath Runners AC, was first (53rd overall) over the line in 22:00
Elizabeth WALSH (VW35-39) of Running Mums Australia, was second (54th overall) over the line in 22:05.
Rachel ROSENTHAL (SW25-29) was third (70th overall) over the line in 22:47.
Some less exciting news is that seven finishing tokens were taken at the end of the event eeek! Please ensure you return tokens to us so that we can use them for the following weeks event - if you've forgotten your personal barcode you can hand your token in to any volunteer.
More exciting news is that this weeks volunteers did a fantastic job, that said every week's volunteers do a fab job also! I had a couple of parkrunners approach me about wanting to volunteer in the near future which is great - make sure you opt in to receive volunteer emails, you can do this via a link on your results email which takes you to your profile.
Which brings me to thanking event 301's volunteers who were; Martin Black, Paul Kelland, Jessica Vinluan, Jonathan Litchfield, Meseret Grela, Adrian Osmond, John Roback, Andy Cohan, Eleanor Young, Jerome Mills, Chris Peacock, Conny Dickgreber and Jackson Rathbone.
See you in a few weeks (don't forget we're cancelled on the 22nd!)
