(not) parkrun week 13 7-13 September

Week 13 of (not) parkrun saw 18,548 parkrunners take part across 20 countries with an average finish time of 34:23.

40 Porty parkrunners took part this week and there were no first timers. We had 12 PBs, congratulations Naomi Miall, Blair Dinwoodie, Jennifer MacKenzie, Alison Elgin, Georgia Rogers, Elinor Evans, Elaine Wilson, Luca Basso, Chris Noden, Merry Ulferts Kilpatrick, Dorothy Grooby & Fiona MacKenzie.

The latest update from parkrun HQ can be found here https://blog.parkrun.com/uk/2020/09/15/covid-19-coronavirus-update-15-september/ there's still no news for Scotland and my last hope of a race this year has just been cancelled. There's still some virtual races and challenges taking place though, well done to anyone who did the virtual Great North run 40 runs challenge or half marathon distance over the weekends and there's been some really long runs popping up on my strava feed in preparation for (not) the London marathon in a few weeks time. Whatever your distance there's still medals to be had to reward your efforts this year.

Take care, stay safe and keep running! Let us know what you've been up to, we miss you!
