Aston Court parkrun 12th October 2013

For the first time since May 2013, the day before the Bristol 10k, the attendance at Ashton Court fell below 200. There could be several reasons for this such as the weather and the forthcoming Mendip Muddle on Sunday. There were also a few regulars not running this weekend.

I almost forgot to mention that it was the “B” course this week. This could have resulted in marshalling being a popular activity this week. The Bristol &West attendance held up well with twenty runners in the field.

It is interesting to note that Bristol & West have completed 2,699 out of a total of 19,345 runs at Ashton Court. That’s about 13.95%. Therefore this week was just under par.

The weather wasn’t the best with a steady drizzle and a stiff northerly wind not assisting faster times.

A closer examination of the times revealed that Alexander Whittaker had equalled his PB, set in July 2013, so this performance earns him this Week’s Performance of the Week. David Bedwell had the best Age Grade ranking in the field of 79.17% and Sarah Everitt had the best Age Grades for the ladies recording 75.16% and 75.13% respectively.

There were thirteen runners at Little Stoke, with Anthony Halliwell, Rebecca Doye and Maggie Salter achieving PBs. Tom Morris was the first finisher. Tom Kingsnorth was the first finisher at Bury St Edmunds.
