It was a glorious sunny autumnal morning at Ashton court for the 5K Parkrun on Saturday 22nd October 2011, and there was another batch of PBs. Dave Engledew was first M50 in 20.18 followed by Alex Leitch who knocked 20 seconds off his PB in 21.39 and Paul Noyce 21.54. Darren Overend was the star this week, knocking a massive 60 seconds off his course PB, followed closely by Sarah Everitt 22.46. Jacob Butterly came next in 23.46 while Alison Engledew knocked another 15 seconds off her course PB in 24.19. Looking back that is an improvement of almost 2 minutes since 23rd April! Roger Brockelsby, “fresh” from his Weston Prom run, ran 26.07 and Andy Butterly feeling a bit under the weather still got round in 33.37, a time he would have been quite pleased with a few months ago. It looks as if the training is paying off, and guess which club was best represented!
