245 parkrunners joined us this morning in the significantly warmer conditions, in comparison to the last few weeks. The course was quite pleasant and not too muddy. Although being Killerton we can expect to see a bit of mud on the course this time of year! We had 27 first timers this morning, I would like to thank you all very much for supporting our parkrun and the National Trust. We had 9 runners complete their first ever parkrun event. All of us here at Killerton hope to see you return in the near future. We did have first timers visit from different UK destinations such as Shropshire. I believe that we did also have a gentleman participate here this morning from Spain. Well done to all of our first timers, I hope that you will return to Killerton parkrun in the future!

There were a fair few runners from various running groups this morning, for example Exeter Harriers, South West Road Runners, Torbay Tri Club, Tiverton Harriers and Ludlow Runners. They are just a few of the running groups that our runners belong to.

The runner with the highest age-related score this morning was Flurry Grierson with 73.57%. The female with the highest age-related grade this morning was Jasmine Stone with 72.32%. Well done, both of you!

We did have 24 new PBs this morning, a very big well done to all of you. The mud definitely would not have made this easy for you!

Congratulations to everyone who achieved a milestone this morning. Well done, Marcus Busch for completing your 50th parkrun. Also well done to, Lucy Mottram for completing your 100th parkrun. For our junior parkrunners, well done to Poppy Harrison and Oliver Pales for achieving your 10th parkrun milestone. Everyone at Killerton would like to say a huge well done to Maggie Hunt for completing her 400th parkrun, Absolutely fantastic! Keep it up!
