Ashton Court Parkrun – Saturday 16th March 2013

It was another chilly morning at Ashton Court on Saturday. It was just like old times with all the puddles now fully replenished after the recent dry spell.

The wetter conditions did not prevent Greg Chance, Stuart O’Connell and Hayley Bennett from recording their fourth successive PBs. PBs were also achieved by Anne Fletcher and Abbie Salter. Performance of the Week goes to Hayley Bennett who really seems to have got the hang of the course and knocked 78 seconds off her previous best.

Coaches and running leaders were well in evidence with Keith Brackstone and Emma Bowers providing support to the ever present Chris Elson.

In all there were twenty-nine runners from Bristol and West out of a total of 200. So that’s 14.5% of the field (managed that without a calculator).

Three more runners, Yvonne Guy, Nicola Dutton and Daniel Course made their debuts and we look forward to them returning…….and improving. It is a fact that a majority of athletes will get a PB on their second run.

The ladies points table still provides keen competition with Alison Engledew needing to claw back 29 points from Emma Withers in the next five weeks. Alison caught up four points today, but needs an average of six points per week to overhaul Emma. It’s going to be close.
