Ashton Court Parkrun – Saturday 6th October 2012

After heavy overnight rain, the weather cleared up around dawn, to enable Saturday’s Ashton Court Parkrun to be held in bright sunny and almost windless conditions. There was plenty of standing water at the top of the hill, which can add several seconds on runners’ times as they try to keep their feet dry.

Numbers were up from last week, with many returning after last week’s Bristol Half Marathon.

Elyas Haji led the way home finishing first overall in a new personal best. In the ladies’ run, Bristol and West provided the first four finishers, with Sarah Everitt at the front followed by Tracy Allen, Diana Kennedy and Alison Engledew.

In all there were 21 Bristol & West runners with 5 PBs. Highlights were Tom Burgess achieving his first PB since January, and Denica Arthur breaking through the 30 minute mark, having come close last week. The Performance of the Week is awarded to Karen Watson who knocked 41 seconds off her previous best.

There were also first finishers for Bristol & West at Brighton & Hove and Cardiff Parkruns with Peter Woodward and Angus Mclean taking the honours. No other club managed three overall winners this week.

Finally a reminder that Parkrun is dependent on volunteers. So if you haven’t marshalled for some time, please, email Geoff at AshtonCourtHelpers@parkrun.com to offer your services.
