Event #140 Saturday 8th June 2019


This week Summer seemed to have paused and it felt more like Winter, a good 10c cooler than last week with a nippy little breeze as 93 people and a lot of nice pooches, ran, jogged and walked the Ottershaw Memorial Fields course, of whom 15 were first timers and 19 recorded new Personal Bests. Representatives of 17 different clubs took part including SHAEF Shifters and Springfield Striders RC.


Welcome to Christopher DODD and Edward LOVATT, their first parkrun, hope you enjoyed the three laps of the woods and Achilles Hill and that we see you again soon.


Congratulations to Joe CONNOLLY on reaching the Junior 10 run club on a PB of 27:00, also on a PB of 25:07, Robert SOCHON notching up 50 runs and Neil ALLEN getting to a ton, a nice round 100 today, all of which he has done here at Homewood, thanks for the cakes and gingerbread biscuits, look forward to seeing you all in your nice new milestone shirts soon.


The event was made possible by 19 wonderful volunteers led by this weeks Run Director Kathy MILLER:

Duncan HAUGHEY • Sarah ABBOTT • Samantha PENNELL • Maria JOVANI • Phil STOCKER • Jason TUTTY • Steve DYE • Jane STRATFORD • Jill HOPKINS • Dee HARPER • Lisa MCLAREN • Ian HARPER • Kathy MILLER • Richard MILLER • Joel STILLINGFLEET • Calvin MANNING • Jake MARTIN • Rebecca RUTTER • Jennifer HOLMES


Crossing the line first today was Andy MCEWAN on a great time of 19:21 and following him was our first female Maria JOVANI setting a new PB on her 2nd run at Homewood, but first time on the current course (which is harder than the original one) of 20:57, quick enough that she was able to help out with the bar code scanning at the finish.


Today's full results and a complete event history can be found on the Homewood parkrun Results Page.

Great running everyone!
