Ashton Court and Little Stoke parkruns – Saturday 25th January 2014

The weather was a bit deceptive at Ashton Court on Saturday. At the bottom of the hill around the start area it was very mild with virtually no wind. On the plateau, there was a stiff breeze from the west, so it was right in the faces of the runners as they headed to the turn around point. 

There were a total of 266 runners at Ashton Court including twenty – six from Bristol & West. There were just two runners in the top ten this week; Steven Swan in seventh position and Paul Jefferson in tenth place (probably due to commitments elsewhere). Steven Swan, Gary Jennings, Tracy Allan, Tanya Chowdhury and Jane Colman were first in their respective Age Categories.

However, at least we had a PB this week. Paul Taylor-Morris had a big improvement in his second run at Ashton Court and this earns him the Performance of the Week title. It was good to see three first timers on the hill. Jane and Robert Colman, and Christopher Herbert all performed creditably. This makes a total of 184 runners who completed an Ashton Court parkrun

Meanwhile at Little Stoke, there were 214 runners of which eight were from Bristol & West. Mark Edwards was the first finisher and had a PB in the process. Isobel Medcroft was the first female, thus completing a double for Bristol & West. Mark Burley also had a PB and a top ten finish position.
