Ashton Court Parkrun – Saturday 13th October 2012

After a week of whingeing, moaning and sleepless nights, 28 Bristol & West runners (ironically a record turnout) assembled at Ashton Court for the dreaded ‘B’ route. Instead of a straight up/down route, the ‘B’ route is an up/down/up/down route. As you can appreciate a significant difference.

However, a short time spent on one of the proprietary web sites shows that the ‘B’ course has a total ascent (and descent of 135metres), compared with 107 metres for the ‘A’ route. So that’s a fact. It is more difficult; well statistically at any rate.

Therefore, PBs were a bit thin on the ground, particularly for the more regular attendees at Ashton Court. As a result this week’s Performance of the Week goes to Sue Campbell who broke the 27 minute barrier for the first time; and after 21 runs. Tom Burgess and Denica Arthur also got PBs, Denica for the third successive week.

At the front of the field Elyas Haji was second overall and Diana Kennedy was the first lady finisher.

Annabel Gummow was 1st lady finisher at the Bushy parkrun, the biggest parkrun. This Saturday there were 884 runners.

Finally, congratulations Emma Withers on completing her 50th parkrun.

Canine Update

There were no problems with those which were on a lead. Today we had some course invasions by spectating dogs wanting to join in. This subject will not go away.
