Wycombe Rye parkrun Run Report, 15th February 2020 #388

As I got excited about running my 125th parkrun and writing the run report, when the volunteer reminder got sent round, I got a shock! I had forgotten I’d put myself down for Barcode Scanning also. So, before everyone was down at Wycombe Rye for the 388th parkrun, I decided to do a Freedom run around the course, and also checking it was clear! But enough about me! The conditions, windy, muddy and damp. Not ideal!

Storm Dennis was approaching, but the only Dennis in our park today was Rodney DENNIS (VM40-44) so that didn’t stop Run Directors, Douglas and Nick, sending 473 on their Saturday morning parkrun. We had 36 first timers and a further 36 worked hard for their PB’s in challenging conditions.

Our Overall winner today (Tim BARTHOLOMEW VM35-39), first time it was at Wycombe Rye, ran an average of 10.37mph for a time of 17:59. Our first female (Louise FRY, SW30-34) crossed the line in 19:45, with an average run speed of 9.44mph! The average time at Wycombe Rye parkrun is 28:55 with Sharon MAITLAND (VW50-54) running this (run speed of 6.45mph!). CONGRATULATIONS to all those who completed milestones today, we hope to see you in your brand new milestone t-shirts soon!

Obviously this could have not been done without the 33 volunteers helping today, a huge thank you to them. They were; Mia ANSTISS, Rachel BOND, Joshua BROWN, Matthew BROWN, Dominic CHROMINSKI, Marjorie COLLISON, Robert COLLISON, Sarah CUTHBERT, Seth DASSANAYAKE, Declan DOHERTY, Nixon DREW, Rachel DREW, Sherlock DREW, Babajide EVANSON, Douglas GORDON, Ashley HALDANE, Sarah HALDANE, Craig HARRISON, John HUTTON, Lawrence HUXLEY, Rebecca JANAWAY, Nicholas MARTIN, Michael MELARKEY, Chris MILSOM, Ammar NASAR, Richard NORRIS, Emma PALMER FOSTER, Dave PASCOE, Richard ROBERTS, Nick SENDALL, Eppy SEWELL, Jeremy TWAITE, Jo WARNOCK-HORN

Coming up next week is another FREE parkrun where Ronnie and Lyndsay will be setting you off!
