Ashton Court Parkrun – Saturday 10th November 2012

Once again Bristol City Council has come up trumps. They have delayed the opening of the café until 10am. This ensures that all parkrunners will have an adequate warm down and stretch after their run. It’s great to see that financial gain is not a priority.

Numbers held up well this week with twenty-one at Ashton Court and four at Little Stoke, not forgetting the four volunteers at Ashton Court. This was despite there being several regulars missing as a result of alternative commitments at the Gwent League at Brecon.

Conditions were almost perfect, with mild temperatures and windless conditions. Tom Burgess maintained his recent form with a fourth successive PB. Denica Arthur, aided and encouraged this time by Rikki Porter, continued her improvement. Alison Engledew dipped under 23 minutes for the first time. Edward James and Graham Grout are both achieving PBs in more than 50% of their runs at Ashton Court and both were successful today. With mother Maggie monitoring the finish, this week’s Performance of the Week goes to Abbie Salter with a PB by 3 seconds and first place in the SW20-24 category.

Congratulations are due to Tracy Allan for winning the Sweatshop prize for October. This is in recognition of her contribution to the Ashton Court Parkrun both as a runner and a volunteer.
