162 parkrunners turned out in force to run, jog or walk the course for the final weekend in September. A heavy police presence surprised 31 first timers and an amazing 39 people recorded new Personal Best times.
Super double congratulations to Debora Walker for celebrating her Milestone 100 and recording a fantastic first sub 35 minute time of 34:35. Deb is well known to countless visitors as the welcoming friendly face of Street parkrun holding our course map aloft and delivering her enthusiastic first timers briefing.
Double congratulations to Peter Burden for his first sub 25 time and Sarah Burden for her first sub 30. Peter and Sarah have been parkrunning in Street since 7 August and getting faster each week. Very well done to both for keeping in step together!
Not forgetting double congratulations to Street parkrun core team members Emma Powell and partner Shaun Rigby for both recording PB times, Emma 22:13 with Shaun determinedly trying to catch her up in 22:51!
Adding to her recent string of PBs Cath Goldsmid went sub 25 with 24:53 meanwhile Chris Ford recorded 34:42 to go sub 35 and Sarah Bolt 39:09 to safely make sub 40.
Apologies to everyone I've missed for a personal mention and very well done to all those recording PB times this week.
Almost unoticed at the front, first time visitor Ben Miles from Wales shaved a second from our course record which now stands at 15:55. Thanks for visiting Ben, we like to keep challenging all our visiting top athletes!
The Run Director was Mark Pople, better known to many in Street (in a good way) as one of our local Street Police Constables.
