Ashton Court parkrun – Saturday 31st August 2013

The first signs of autumn were in the air as a total of 259 parkrunners turned up at Ashton Court on Saturday of which twenty-six came from Bristol & West. This was a god attendance, especially as the dreaded B course was used because of the Kite Festival being held further up the hill.

There were no PBs for Bristol and West runners. This was also the case at Little Stoke. The Performance of the Week goes to Will Russell who was first finisher, in a time only eleven seconds off the best time for a club runner on the course.

Interestingly, of the PBs that were recorded, no one got a PB who had run more than twenty-six parkruns. One factor that could slow people down, particularly on the B course, is that there is two way traffic for much of the run. From where your correspondent was observing, a lot of people don’t seem able to differentiate between right and left.

There were also more dogs in attendance which added to the congestion.

At Little Stoke, there were two first finishers for Bristol & West with Phil Parry and Helen Newberry taking the honours.
