Ashton Court and Little Stoke parkruns – Saturday 4th January 2014

There is no let up for the intrepid parkrunners, with many completing their fourth parkrun in eight days. Compared to New Year’s Day, Ashton Court was reminiscent of the Atacama Desert, with the rainfall reduced to a mere drizzle and the wind also dropping off.

Attendances were back up to pre-Christmas levels with 242 at Ashton Court and 235 at Little Stoke. That equals Little Stoke’s third best turnout. Bristol &West had twenty-five running at Ashton Court and fourteen at Little Stoke. Numbers would no doubt have been greater, but several athletes were having a day off before the SW Country Championships the following day.

PBs were at a premium, probably due to the conditions, with just two recorded, both at Little Stoke, by Jonathan Bennett and Christopher Herbert.

The club had a number of successes in the various age grades, with David Bedwell, Gary Jennings, Tracy Allan, Henrietta Anstey and Emma Withers all first in their respective categories at Ashton Court. Phil Parry, Will Windell and Sabrina Patten all won their Age Grades at Little Stoke.

Performance of the Week at Ashton Court goes to David Bedwell, who was the only runner with an Age Grade ranking above 80 %, recording 83.36%.

As usual there were runners on the tourist trail. Rich Kenington was on home territory in Kingston upon Hull. Abbie Salter and Lizzie Elton-Walters ran at Brockwell.
