Workington parkrun event 4

Another warm Saturday morning came and with it a group from the Carlisle event due to theirs been cancelled helping us to overcome the 50 landmark! This week there were 51 runners, of whom 24 were first timers which is fantastic and 12 recorded new Personal Bests.

We had a new front runner setting the course record - mens placings:
Russell MADDAMS (SM35-39) of Keswick AC, was first over the line in 16:48 - first appearance.
Stephen Paul WESTON (SM35-39) of DH Runners, was second over the line in 18:46.
Patrick MALKINSON (SM25-29) (Unattached) was third over the line in 18:56.

Women's placings:
Rebecca BUCHANAN (JW15-19) of Carlisle Aspatria AC, was first (13th overall) over the line in 21:45 - second time in 2 appearances and still holding the female course record.
Rachel Anne MELLOR (SW30-34) of Keswick AC, was second (16th overall) over the line in 22:22.
Faye MALKINSON (SW20-24) (Unattached) was third (20th overall) over the line in 23:26.

Well done to all for making it to a 4th week, so far we've not had too many hiccups with times/positions but if you do have any just drop us an email and we'll do our best to sort it!

We had 2 new volunteers today which were much appreciated so anyone who maybe doesn't feel like running one week - (you still get your points!) - then please come down, there'll always be a job for you!
