Parkrun No 249 – Saturday 25th May 2019

This morning started with a bit of rain, but by 9am the sun was out to welcome 352 runners, joggers and walkers, of whom 38 were first timers and 58 recorded new Personal Bests. Representatives of 24 different clubs took part.

We celebrated two milestones: Chris Eland, one of our Run Directors, completed his 100th parkrun, and parkrun Juniors, Ben Glover and Lily Harrison-Stokoe celebrated their 10th parkruns, well done!

George ROWEDDER (Herts Phoenix AC) was the first finisher for the men, in 17:02.  He was followed by Kevin SAMBRIDGE in 18:14 and Martin WESTLEY (Harlow RC) in 18:36. 

Lucy BARNES (Ipswich Harriers) was the first lady to cross the finish line in 21:38, followed by Sharon PARRY in 22:02 and Lily HARRISON-STOKOE in 22:06.
