Ashton Court Parkrun – Saturday 15th September 2012

Aston Court definitely didn’t look at its best on Saturday morning 15th September 2012. Preparations were well under way for BrisFest next week. The park looked like a temporary detention centre for suspected terrorists. Are the organisers trying to keep the punters in or out next week?

This brings us nicely onto next week.  All who can tear themselves from the delights of Bastard Sunz (sic), Serial Killaz (sic) and Empror(sic) & Duppy Beatz(sic) are all very welcome to come on the parkrun outing to the Forest of Dean. Full details are elsewhere on this website or on the Ashton Court Parkrun website.

Saturday’s Parkrun attracted 23 runners from Bristol & West and there were 6 PBs. There was also a good club presence in the leading positions with Mark Williams and Elyas Haji coming 2nd and 3rd and Sarah Everitt finishing as the first lady.

The club also excelled in the Age Category positions with club runners winning a total of 8 groups.

The performances of note included Laura Hamer-West knocking 46 seconds off her previous best and Gary Jennings finally getting below 20 minutes after being within a second for the two previous weeks. Tracy Allan got a PB and is now closing in on 80% in the Age Gradings

However, the Performance of the Work is that of Elyas Haji, 82 seconds under his previous best.  There’s still more to come from Elyas, so watch this space.

Volunteers this week included Alex Leitch, Tom Burgess, Colin Traer and Roger Brocklesby.
