Well it’s the half year point everyone, so time for a few statistics!! (immediately loses half the people who have clicked this far! )
First a little review of parkrun number 218:
I had a lovely little walk / jog / run guiding young Alice around and trying to stay in the shade wherever possible. It certainly was a hot one!
It was great to see so many parkrunners then enjoying the yoga with Paul after parkrun.
In total 6,946 unique parkrunners have now completed Market Harborough parkrun.
Among the 331 who completed parkrun event 218, we had:
- 331 parkrunners completing the course of whom:
- 171 were male parkrunners;
- 147 were female parkrunners; and
- 13 were naughty unknown parkrunners who forgot their barcodes #DFYB!
From the 318 parkrunners obtaining times:
-32 achieved new PBs;
-17 were First Timers; of whom:
- 10 were tourists from other parkruns
- 7 started their parkrun journeys with us
Your event was kindly brought to you by 26 volunteers, of whom 5 also parkran (is that a new word?!).
Or if I put all that in another way…
Now it’s July, the time is right to share some stats on the first half of 2019. First up are those who have completed the most MH parkruns so far this year. Congratulations to Alishia READ who only missed the first parkrun this year and is on a roll of 25 consecutive parkruns with us.
Most PBs – and this time it’s Linda BENNETT out in front improving her PB from 39:51 down to 33:06.
It’s a familiar name topping the maximum age grade ratings! Congratulations to Bernie OWEN whose 22:18 parkrun in June earned her a fantastic age grade of 89.54%.
Congratulations to our VI twins Lydia and Alice HAYDEN who are 1stand 3rdin our ‘most improved’ table, separated by Helen CRANE. Congrats all.
Where would we be without Austin? He’s only missed on parkrun this year, closely followed by our joint Junior parkrunner of the year (no longer a junior!), Matt PRIESTLEY. Thank you to everyone who appears on this table, we couldn’t do it without you.
Sometimes people don’t realise, but every parkrun has a ‘fastest 500’ list and the following shows those MH parkrunners who have entered or moved up the fastest 500 set of times in the first half of this year. Great running all! Wayne, your PB the other day of 20:27 was agonisingly one second off the list!
Well that’ll do for this Run Report.
As a reminder, you don’t have to be a stats nerd to write a Run Report, your style, your length, photos, no photos – it’s entirely up to you, just let us know in advance that you’d like to have a go.
