Ashton Court Parkrun – Saturday 9th March 2013

In his annual report to the club for 2012, our Chairman mentioned that that club members are beginning to make a mark at local Parkruns. Following today’s events at Ashton Court, this view would seem to be rather understated, with Bristol and West runners taking four out of the first five places at Ashton Court, not to mention the first lady position. The two first finishers were Peter Gandon and Sarah Everitt. There were also first places for club runners in nine of the Age Grade Rankings.

It was an excellent attendance of over 200 on a murky yet reasonably mild morning. More significantly the wind was negligible. This enabled five club runners to record PBs, including Barry Mills with his fourth in succession. The Performance of the Week accolade goes to Peter Gandon who held off all-comers with a time of 18:41.

The club also had a first finisher in God’s county with Tracy Allan back on home territory taking the honours at Sheffield Hallam.

Parkrun HQ is currently having a purge on runners who forget their barcodes. It would appear that a zero tolerance policy will apply and transgressors will not be allowed to record their time, but will be required to deposit their finish token in a bucket at the finish. For many of us a bucket would normally be a most welcome sight…….anyway we won’t go into that.

Finally congratulations to Colin Traer, who has been awarded the Sweatshop monthly prize of a pair of running shoes; and also to David Engledew on completing his fiftieth parkrun.
