Work and the M5 conspired to keep me away from the trails this week, fortunately I managed to divert off the M5 in time to attend Longrun Meadow in Taunton to get my weekly parkrun fix, thank you to the team there for rescuing a stranded parkrunner!! luckily this didn’t coincide with a rather important family parkrun milestone due next week or I could have been in a spot of bother. Longrun Meadow whilst an enjoyable friendly and well-run event, for me, any other parkrun no matter how good, just isn’t quite the same as the trails as we are lucky to run in such a beautiful setting. This week 110 lucky people ran, jogged and walked the course, including Esteban Perez from Spain and from slightly closer to home Ken Summers who recorded his 150th parkrun for a slightly “arbitrary” milestone. Well done Ken great achievement.
John Windemer and Christopher Matthews celebrated an official milestone run this week, both clocking up their 50th parkruns. Congratulations to both of you
This Saturday we had 27 were first timers and 6 people brand new to the parkrun family. Of our 110 runners 13 recorded new Personal Bests. Well done to you all
Representatives of 17 different clubs took part including the first ever representative of Michelles running club & Chandlers ford community running group. Welcome to Jane Roach and Divya Jogai, hope you both enjoyed your visit, we also had ten representatives of Erme Valley Harriers who I suspect may have been supporting Ken on his 150th run.
This weeks first finishers were both from Erme Valley Harriers , congrats to Sam Swift and Jaine Swift. Our most experienced parkrunner this week was Andrew Trigg of… you guessed it… Erme Valley Harriers. The best age grading of the week went to Andrew Houghton of Tavistock ac with 75.05%
and finally in answer to the opening question, not me as Ronnie as well as being pretty quick to a 147 has also recorded a 18.08 parkrun... pretty impressive
