Ashton Court and Little Stoke parkruns – Saturday 11th January 2014

Was it the weather? Was it part of a get fit campaign after Christmas? Anyway both Ashton Court and Little Stoke recorded record attendances on Saturday. Ashton Court had 320 runners beating the previous best of 307. Little Stoke recorded 255 runners beating the turnout of 235 which was only set last week.

Bristol & West had thirty-eight representatives at Ashton Court (another record) and thirteen at Little Stoke – an amazing fifty-one athletes across the two venues.

Even though conditions at Ashton Court were almost perfect, there were no PBs. The excuses ranging from being accosted by the marshal at the halfway point, and there being no room to cross the finish line due to congestion, do not cut any ice. Fancy dress has been stored away for the time being, so that’s not a valid reason either.

There were some good performances with Scott Watkins, Ross Grainger, Pete Mountain, Marie Berryman, Sarah Everitt and Claire Sapwell all coming first at their respective Age Grades. There were also impressive debuts at Ashton Court from Becky James and Anna Skinner. The Performance of the Week goes to Scott Watkins for his second place overall.

At Little Stoke, Phil Parry was first finisher for the tenth time out of eleven runs. His times show a remarkable consistency with only thirty-five seconds separating his best and worst results. There were four PBs recorded by Mark Edwards, Mark Burley, Isobel Medcroft and Sabrina Patten.

Phil Parry, Mark Edwards, Nina Davies, Sian Davies, Isobel Medcroft and Sabrina Patten were first in their Age Grades.

Finally congratulations to Graham Grout on achieving his fiftieth parkrun.
