Saturday’s anniversary Ashton Court Parkrun saw a record 25 members taking part, most providing a colourful scene sporting the club singlet, with 4 injured/unwell members doing the cheering. It was windy on top so fast times were at a premium. Leading the B&W AC contingent was Robin Dallman in
fifth place with 18.52 followed by Colin Traer in seventh place in 19.32. Next was Greg Chance in 19.42 with first M50 Peter Mountain in 19.51 and Andy Malloy 20.47 all three within a few seconds of their course PBs. Our ladies dominated proceedings with Diana Kennedy second 21.08, amazing Sarah Everitt third in another course PB by 4 seconds in 21.09, fourth Becci Colquhoun in 24.07, tantalizingly close to her course PB, sixth and first W50 Alison Engledew in 24.24 and seventh Emma Withers in 25.45 (a lot quicker this week as she wasn’t pacing her young son – we forgot to mention that on last week’s write-up!).
Meanwhile Jacob Butterly led a small posse of men home with 21.47, second M55 Carron Downer and improving Paul Noyce coming in together in 22.04, Alex Leitch continuing his come back with 22.46 and second M60 Tom Burgess in 23.04. Rikki Porter 24.09 led Graham Grout home by 4 seconds with Noel Arthur a minute or so behind in 25.41. Roger Brocklesby carrying a cold took 26.02, Paul Cooke 27.24 Paul Burgess 29.02 and ace veteran Harry Clayton 29.41. Janet Lascelles, Debbie and Martin Riddiford closed the B&W AC contingent home in 30.14, 31.00 and 33.04 respectively.
