Parkrun Results – Saturday 20th July 2013

Ashton Court Parkrun – Saturday 20th July 2013

Where did they all go? Last week there were 307 parkrunners at Ashton Court. This week there were 216. So that’s a grand total of 91 who went missing during the week. The Bristol & West contingent held up well with twenty-two runners as opposed to twenty-four, so we weren’t to blame.

One of the reasons for the reduction in numbers was the close proximity of the Tow Path mob match on Friday evening, which was also held in sweltering conditions. Fortunately, Saturday morning was a lot cooler, with a refreshing breeze to keep the heat in check.

This didn’t really have a beneficial effect on times, with no PBs recorded by Bristol & West athletes this week. This always makes the award of the Performance of the Week that bit more difficult, so it was decided to use the Age Grade Rankings as a tie breaker. This produced two candidates, Carron Downer and Sarah Everitt had the same ranking of 74.29%. However it was decided to give the award this week to Carron.

A quick mention of runners at other Parkrun events:

Phil Wylie won at Southwick Country Park Parkrun in 15:03 – pretty useful running as although it is a lot flatter than Ashton Court it is by no means a ‘fast’ course.

Cardiff Parkrun is a ‘fast’ course and Charlotte Green took full advantage slashing 1 minute 36 seconds off her 5k road time with an 18 minute 25 second clocking as she finished first lady.

Closer to home Huw Jones finished second at the Little Stoke Parkrun in 17:32. Behind him Andy Wright clocked 22:52 (another who had run the Tow Path the night before) and Nicola Cogan 24:28.
