Hove Promenade parkrun #233 7 March 2020

It was great to welcome you all back after another cancellation thanks to the rubbish weather we have been having.  This week 474 people ran, jogged and walked the course, of whom 68 were first timers and 107 recorded new Personal Bests. That’s a huge number of PB’s!!

The following people joined us for their very first parkrun ever: Patrick HUDSON, Jake FORREST, Hayden ANDREW, Nina BASSHAM, Tom HACKNEY, Yasmin O’BRIAN, Lucy SWERLING, Barbara DEFRIEZ, Ella GRANT, Katy MORRIS, Nicola CATTERALL, Jamie WRIGHT, Anne SHROER, Jade KITSON, Jayne STEVENS, Laura ROSE and Rebecca BLACK. Well done all and we look forward to seeing you back next week.

Scrolling through the results, I see Oliver GIBSON reached the 50 runs milestone. Great work Oliver.

Also slipping under the radar were prom regulars, Benji and Keith BLOOM, who reached 100 runs!! Amazing, well done both.

Not forgetting also, Stu ROBERTS who hit the 250 runs milestone. Apparently he didn’t want a fuss, so of course we gave him a nice big shout out. I hear he celebrated with a new PB also, excellent work, well done Stuart.



Gill DAVIES joined us and was celebrating her 40th birthday. Happy birthday Gill, we hope you had a good run and rest of your birthday.


We had some great photo's from James this week. People were clearly very happy to be back after our break
