Double record-breaker for the last parkrun of the decade

We had a double record-breaking day for the final parkrun of the decade, with our first female finisher, Elizabeth Davies, setting a new VW40-44  age category record of 89.61% for her PB time of 17.10, only 19 seconds behind the first finisher. Andrea Barras is no stranger to setting age category records, she broke her own VW70-74 record with 86.08% for her time of 25.52.

Well done to Alan Lumb, who ran his 250th, Matilda Rhodes and Tom Sidebottom who ran their 150ths and Amy Graham and Andy Wood who ran their 100ths. James Underwood, Michael Warwick, Donna Galek and Jessica Pitts-Murray ran their 50ths.
