Ashton Court and Little Stoke Park parkruns – Saturday 18th January 2014

Numbers were down at Ashton Court after last week’s record breaking attendances, but they still held up well with 296 turning out, of which twenty-seven were from Bristol & West.

After yet another dampish week; conditions, particularly on top of the hill, were very wet with a stiff breeze blowing.

The men’s event was dominated by the club’s runners with four in the top ten, including Jarlath McKenna and Robert Stewart finishing first and second respectively, and only three seconds apart. Jarlath has now been first finisher on seven occasions. Robert was the only club runner to record a PB and this earns him the Performance of the Week award.

In addition to Jarlath and Robert, Andrew Malloy, Pete Mountain, Otto Kingston, Emma Withers, Jennifer Owsley and Cecilia Browne were first in their respective Age Categories.

In the Ashton Court Male Points Table, Tom Watkins and Stuart O’Connell are currently first and second. In the Women’s Table Marie Berryman is second followed closely by Emma Withers in third place.

There were seven Bristol & West runners at Little Stoke out of a total field of 220. Mark Burley and David Bedwell were first in their Age Categories. Jonathan Bennett recorded a PB. Dave Bedwell had the top Age Grade score in the field with 84.68%

For the parkrun tourists, two new events in South Gloucestershire will be starting up shortly. Chipping Sodbury’s inaugural event will be on 22nd February 2014, followed by Pomphrey Hill (a different course to the Bristol & West monthly event) a week later on 1st March 2014.
