We had a total of 65 runners, out and about this week doing Virtual parkrun Event #16 which, shall we say, was slightly more wet and windy than the last one !
This Weeks PB's
Another impressive 6 new PB's were set this week.
Very well done to the speedy Adele Bovingdon, Philip Read and Natasha Janes.
It was also PB's all round for the Priest sisters, Jess and Ella and Fiona Griffith's is getting closer to that sub 30 minute barrier every week.
Congratulations one and all.

|Joseph Gardiner||Freedom run of Whinlatter Forest parkrun with dad. No

|Lesley Hyland||After last weeks course record a more sedate stroll
|Lisa Burgess||Really happy with This

|Michelle Lamarre||I'm thinking and hoping that this is a virtual parkrun PB. Need to resurrect anologue tracking as, with Garmin down I can't check BUT it's (not)parkrun PB and 3 seconds faster than the anything I can currently check back to (I ran 36:29 on 23rd May) so I am taking it! In terms of motivation, every little helps. I'd love to get back to actual park running and a post injury PB of mid 35's this year.|
|Natasha Janes||Thank you to all organisers. Keep running Maldon and Go
|Neal BEAUMONT||Burnham Parkrun course again this morning. I did it twice: once, clockwise, with Jos, then again, anticlockwise, by myself. A breezy southerly, made some sections hard work. Thanks Maldon!!|

|Philip Page||SMASHED IT!!

|Philip Read||Up and at it early to beat the rain! Have a great weekend everyone.|
|Steve Carter||Not feeling it this morning, might have been the double
helping of Thai style chilli chicken I had last night, or maybe the bottle of Sauvignon Blanc...
|Sue BREWSTER||Up and down the Cornish countyside today.|
|Tim Gardiner||Ran above the rain clouds at the UK's highest and hilliest (c. 660 ft., 200 m) parkrun with Joseph. Whinlatter Forest in the Lake District is a spectacular and challenging location for a parkrun, so we treated it like a proper Saturday run with no watch stopping. After a false sense of security from the short downhill sprint at the start, it's constantly uphill for a mile and a half which is soul destroying to be honest, before a brief downhill section, then more crushing elevation through the pines, in which a red squirrel could be lurking! The best advice is to speed walk when it becomes quicker than jogging, just don't stop moving forward! Save your energy for the most euphoric finish to any parkrun: a downhill sprint for half a mile to a large wooden Gruffalo owl! The route is lined with orchids and plenty of common green grasshoppers at their highest altitude in the Lake District. If you have any energy left, a trek to the summit of Seat How (1624 ft., 495 m) will reward you with spectacular views of the Lakes including distant Scafell Pike.|
|Tony Martinez||New virtual PB whoop whoop. Thank you PR team.|
|Tracy Page||Enjoying the route - particularly the downhill bits!|
|Wendy Aldridge||That was a struggle today!|
|Yvonne McAulay||Fantastic to Virtual parkrun with family again|
