Parkrunners see in Autumn in style

Temple Newsam parkrun
Event number 284
1st September 2018

Temple Newsam was a gorgeous place to see in Autumn this week. 148 people ran, jogged and walked the course in bright autumnal sunshine tempered by a light refreshing breeze.

The pleasant conditions certainly played their part in helping 21 runners record new Personal Bests. There were some great performances amongst these.John Laverick smashed his previous best to come in 4th with a time of 20:44. Ed Greenhough broke through the 22 minute barrier for the first time. Helen Rigg also took a good chunk off her PB to clock her first sub 28 minute time. Caroline Allen also took over a minute off her previous best. Rachel Trawally, Elizabeth Bedford and Mark Proctor both broke through the 30 minute barrier for the first time. Well done all of you.

David MELLOR • Paul DURKIN • Tracey PARSONS • Ronnie BRAY • Paul ADAMSON • Stuart GALL • Moira LENAGHAN • Richard WHITEHOUSE • Gillian LAMBERT • Andrew BURNS • Pauline HARDMAN • Andrew ELLIS • Alan WALSH • Josie MELLOR • Richard COOPER • Katy PAGE • Reece DICKENS • Teresa GRANNER • Charlotte COPLEY • Andy DARBY • Daniel AYRES • Nigel FULLER • Clare COOPER • Sharon BUTTERFIELD • Loz DARBY • Paul BAVILL • Wendy HIGGINS • Rob HARBOURNE • Suzanne HARBOURNE • Kyle HARBOURNE • Georgie COOPER • Stephen FLANAGAN • Hendrikus VAN ROSSUM • Adam WELBOURNE
