The TAIL of Two Centuries

271st PH parkrun 1450

These friendly-looking Roman Centurians looked after the tail today, seemingly with their own group of followers. Officially earning their Club 100/Centurian membership, we look forward to seeing them in their less-conspicuous black T-shirts very soon.

In addition to the 2 tail walkers, Russell Parker also completed his 100th run today - congratulations to all 3.

The volunteers enjoyed the agreeable temperatures today, perfect for cheering on and funnel duties. Finishers, though, were telling us it was hot and humid as soon as you ran! Despite that, 61 new PBs were recorded today - that's one in five runners. Malcolm Offer went one better and logged a new age category record for VM80-84 - very impressive!

The only signature in our visitors book was Steve and Anna, from Leicester Victoria parkrun - "loving the hill". Steve has run Pomphrey a few times, and was one of the recorded PBs - we're glad you enjoyed it. I happen to be visiting there in a few weeks, so will look out for them!

Looking ahead, don't forget we are cancelled on Saturday 15th June. We are back the following week, 22nd June, and are planning our annual Club Day for that weekend, so add both dates to your diary.
