Ashton Court and Little Stoke parkruns – Saturday 16th November 2013

The attendances at Ashton Court and Little Stoke both showed that runners don’t like the rain, but they can handle the cold. Both venues had their third highest turnouts with 295 at Ashton Court and 235 at Little Stoke. Bristol and West had a total of forty-six runners with thirty-three at Ashton Court and thirteen at Little Stoke.

Will Russell and Jarlath McKenna were first and second respectively at Ashton Court and both recorded PBs. Will is now the sixth fastest runner at Ashton Court. His time on Saturday was only fifteen seconds off the course record, so definitely a target to aim for there.

Otto Kingston, not satisfied with last week’s PB, had a thirty-four second improvement this week. Otto’s next target must be to achieve an Age Grade ranking of over 70% as he is now at 69.07 %.  Vanessa Redmond, Paul Burgess and Matthew Payne, suffering no ill effects from the Sodbury Slog, all improved their times.

The other PB at Ashton Court went to Lizzi Elton-Walters, her first PB since April. This earns Lizzi the Performance of the Week accolade.

Other notable performances were recorded by Marie Berryman who was the second female finisher and Pete Mountain who had an Age Grade ranking of 79.28%. Maggie Salter equalled her PB which was recorded way back in March 2012.

At Little Stoke, Mark Burley and Becky James had PBs, with Becky leading all the other ladies home.
