Temple Newsam parkrun
Event number 286 - 15th September 2018
The Temple Newsam weather fairy was on her best behaviour on Saturday, ensuring that the 198 runners, joggers and walkers had a dry, if slightly overcast morning to enjoy the park. Malcolm Lavery was photographer for the day, popping up everywhere with his camera and if you haven’t checked out the fine photos from the day you can see them on the Temple Newsam parkrun Facebook page.
We welcomed a total of 39 first timers, 12 of you new parkrunners and 27 tourists visiting for the first time. Great to see 7 returnees, back for their 2nd go at the hills! There were 29 clubs represented, including 11 visitors from Farsley Flyers.
There were two milestone runners this week, Marina Dobbs and Stuart Gall did their 100th parkruns earning themselves entry to the 100 club and the much coveted black running shirt.
Although the sky was slightly overcast it must have been ideal PB weather as an amazing 32 of you got PBs this week! Well done to all of you. Special mentions go to Roslyn Birch who knocked over 2 minutes off (02:21), and to Melinda Whong and Alex Marrington who improved by just under minutes (01:57 and 01:50 respectively). Also to Lisa Cundall, James Copley and Philip Cundall who all got their fourth PBs in a row.
First place went to Terry Midgley, followed by Adam Hustwit and Robert Vincent. First lady across the line was Julie Masterman.
Best age graded runners were Terry Midgely, Robert Vincent, Paul Adamson, Stephen Plummer, Julie Masterman, Grenville Jensen, Julie Seddon and Jane Dawson, who all cracked the 70% score.
