This week's run report has been compiled by our good friend Alex Ingham. Thank you once again Alex!
267 people ventured into the muddy conditions for Killerton’s 448th event, the weather was fairly mild in comparison to previous weeks, but the course was still very wet in many places. We had 31 first timers this morning, I would like to welcome you all to Killerton parkrun and we hope to see you all return in the future. We had 4 runners who completed their first ever parkrun. Well done to Megan Roberts, Bebe Wigram, Tim Wigram and James Foreshew. We hope to see you again within the parkrun community! Our first timers had traveled from various location across the country such as, Teignmouth, Poole and Wickham.
1 runner gained an age-related score of over 75% - David Wilkinson at 76.38% and for the women, Mary Humphries received the highest age-related grade at 74.03%.
Out of all of our 267 participants this morning, we saw a large amount of runners from different running clubs such as Serpentine Running Club, Exmouth Harriers, Greenbow Running Club and Honiton Running Club, just to name a few!
We also had 9 PBs this morning, considering that the conditions were not on our side. Well done to you all!
A massive well done to everyone who achieved a milestone today. Congratulations, Darragh Casey for completing your 50th parkrun. A very special well done to Andy Parker and Mike Carter for completing their 100th parkrun. Also well done to the junior parkrunners, Ella Spiller and Toby Newnes for achieving their 10th parkrun milestone. Christian Teague was mentioned in our briefing this morning for completing his 150th parkrun, under the age of 18. This is a rather impressive achievement.
I hope you all have a brilliant week! We will see you all again on Wednesday for our New Year’s Day parkrun at the slightly earlier time of 8:30am, I hope that you can make it!
