Event #93 Report 9 February 2013

Another fantastic week for Roundhay Parkrun. We had 23 new runners to Roundhay among the 177 runners taking part. No snow or ice meant that there were perfect conditions for PBs, and 50 runners did achieve a PB!
No snow meant that Tim Crew, our Event Director, didn't wear his reindeer hat, a disappointment, but nevertheless, he and his brilliant team provided great support for the runners.
Jane Evans, a first timer to Roundhay was the first lady home with a time of 18: 39, just four seconds shy of the course record for female runners.
Special mention to Sarah Flynn who achieved her ninth PB this week, Patricia Nolan who achieved a new PB with an age graded score of 71.2% and to all the others, too many to mention, who shaved a few seconds from their time.
Runners were rewarded with a sweet on completion of a survey and crossing the finish line, thoughtfully marked PHEW! this week.
Congratulations to Alan Bracken who did his fiftieth Parkrun at Roundhay today. T
