Ashton Court parkrun – Saturday 26th October 2013

 

The Ashton Court parkrun shared the spotlight with the Ashton Court 10k on Saturday, with many club runners running in one event and volunteering for the other.

There were a total of twenty-six runners from Bristol & West this week, which was an increase from last week with several runners returning after competing in the Gwent Cross-country League.

Jarlath McKenna wins the Performance of the Week award by virtue of achieving the only PB by club runners. PBs are certainly few and far between at present. Jarlath was second overall and also in the top ten were First Timer Ross Grainger, Andrew Malloy and Richard Lowe.

For the ladies, Marie Berryman and Tracy Allan were third and fourth respectively.

The highlight of the week was the estimable Emma Withers becoming only the fourth club member to complete 100 parkruns. This was duly celebrated with the traditional cakes. Emma narrowly failed to achieve the singular feat of finishing in 100th position on her 100th run. She came 99th on the day. It’s all down to entourage management, Emma!

Away from Aston Court, Helen Newberry was first lady at Little Stoke. Just like Ashton Court there was only one PB, with Robin Dallman having a 5 second improvement.

Charlotte Green and Sarah Everitt seem to have taken a liking to Wales after last week’s successes in the Gwent League at Pontypool. They visited Cardiff this week and were the first and second ladies respectively. One small difference is that there are no hills at Cardiff.

Pete Mountain and Tracy Allan both recorded the best Age Gradings on their runs, with Pete achieving 79.97% at Walsall Arboretum, and Tracy 78.79% at Ashton Court.
