Ashton Court parkrun – Saturday 14th September 2013

It was rather low key parkrun at Ashton Court on Saturday, with many regulars having a morning off because of the Bristol Half-Marathon on Sunday. However, 207 did turn out, including seventeen from Bristol & West.

According to the weather forecast, Saturday was to be the calm before Sunday’s storm, but it was still rather a chilly morning with a north-westerly wind on the plateau.

There were still four PBs for club runners. Tom Watkins knocked two seconds off his previous PB, only set last week. Jennifer Owsley had a first PB since May 2012.  Abbie Salter, aided and abetted by mother Maggie, was another to have two PBs in two weeks. Apparently she was receiving less than sympathetic advice, particularly when showing signs of illness on the course.  According to your correspondent’s spies at the finish another showing signs of distress was Ashton Court regular Paul Burgess who had a first PB since January this year. Paul finished just ahead of the Salters and is awarded this week’s Performance of the Week.

Congratulations are due to Denise Williams on completing her fiftieth parkrun.  Congratulations are also due to Andrew Malloy who completed his fiftieth run last week.

At Little Stoke there were only three runners from Bristol & West. However Rebecca Doye was the first lady finisher.

Finally; well done to parkrun HQ for getting the results out quickly this week. They seemed to be coming through from early afternoon on Saturday.

It just shows how keen club members are in that several who were due to race the Bristol Half-Marathon on Sunday acted as volunteers at Ashton Court parkrun on Saturday morning – now there’s dedication to the cause!
