Temple Newsam parkrun
Event number 269
28th April 2018
This week we had more pleasant spring weather at Temple Newsam to greet our 178 runners, joggers and walkers. 24 seems to be a running theme this week with 24 first timers, 24 new Personal Bests and 24 runners from St. Theresa's. In total, representatives of 15 different clubs took part.
A number of great achievements to report this week. Justin Hayes smashed his PB to run 21:31. Jamie Best knocked over 20 seconds off his previous best to come in at 27:01. Sally Clark slashed over 90 seconds from her PB to finish in 28:05. Junior runners Alexander Fraser and Theo Johnson both ran new PBs to make the top 10.
Edward Russell, Paul Bavill and Diane Smith all celebrated their 10th runs by clocking up new PBs. Zoe Appleby also made double figures. Join us this Saturday and you may witness another 'Precious' 50th milestone.....
Tom Rose was the first finisher in 18:18. Hannah Bateson was the first lady finisher in 21:32. Well done both of you!
