Ashton Court Parkrun 14th July 2012

You heard it here first.

In the excellent parkrun weekly newsletter http://www.parkrun.org.uk/news there was a feature this week on a lady named Bowers (no not that one) who is an exponent of the current fad for running competitively with pet pooches. The aforementioned Ms Bowers made the following statement:

canicross is a sport where you run with your dog attached to you and train him to assist and help you go faster!” I rest my case.

I think I’ll bring my pet cheetahs along next week.

This week’s parkrun saw fifteen club members taking part, with Colin Traer, back on home ground, and taking the overall 1st place in a time of 19:13.

There were four PBs from Emma Withers, Matt McKenny, Emily Ciscato and Debbie Riddiford. It was difficult for your voting panel to decide between Matt McKenny and Emma Withers for the Performance of the Week, both wearing club vests. However the decision went to Emma with her first PB at Ashton Court since 11th February 2012. The new running shoes have had an immediate effect.

A number of runners took it easy this week having competed elsewhere during the week (well that’s my excuse and I’m sticking to it). These results are included in this report.

Burrington Blaster

Despite the weather, five Whitehall runners braved the elements to take part in the third of the ‘Town and Country Harriers’ Summer Pub Series’ (The Burrington Blaster) on Thursday evening. The rain eased off just in time for the steep ascent to the top of Black Down on the Mendips. Starting with puddle-dodging, it soon became mud hill-scaling, bog-jumping and rock-avoiding. Most runners found the firmest footing, both up and down, running through the streams covering the paths.

Like all the best evening races, this one started and finished in a pub. Our table, of mostly Bristol and West runners, collected 4 prizes (bottles of wine) between us. As you can imagine, we all enjoyed ourselves!

For anyone interested in off-road running we would thoroughly recommend these races, whatever the weather. The final race in the series, ‘The Dundry Thunder Run’, takes place on August 2nd. Further details: www.tach.org.uk/
