Ashton Court Parkrun – Saturday 1st December 2012

The coldest morning of the current winter greeted exactly 100 parkrunners at Ashton Court on Saturday 1st December 2012, of which sixteen were from Bristol and West – a great turnout considering how many were saving themselves for the Gwent League later in the day. There was a low lying mist over the city but Ashton Court was in bright sunshine at 9 o’clock, albeit with a few icy patches in the shade.

This may have made some runners err on the side of caution; but not Kin Cheung and Christine Burren who both recorded PBs for the second successive week. The Performance of the Week was that of Christine. It was the club vest that clinched it. This followed up her PB for 5k at the Pomphrey Sports last Tuesday.

An honourable mention this week goes to the volunteers. The four from Bristol and West were all warming up, or was it cooling down, for the Gwent League cross country at Blaise Castle later in the day. Meanwhile Henrietta Anstey was no doubt working out her team talk to the Under-13 girls, whilst tackling the Ashton Court hill. That’s different to Sir Alex and Arsene. You never see them turning out for the reserves on a Saturday morning!
