Ashton Court and local parkruns – Saturday 1st March 2014

There are now four local parkruns, with the inaugural event taking place at Pomphrey Hill on Saturday.  The weekend saw the Bath Half Marathon and the Gwent Cross-Country League taking place. Therefore one can’t read too much into the attendances and results. What does stand out is that Ashton Court retains its popularity and with 237 runners this week, its attendance was way ahead of the rest.

The Bristol & West representation was down as previously mentioned, but well done to Colin Traer, Emma Withers, Otto Kingston and Tom Watkins who all volunteered at Ashton Court before competing in the Gwent League at Blaise Castle. I’m not sure that congratulations are in order; the coaching gurus may not be too pleased; but there should be a mention of Marie Berryman and Maciej Bialogonski who both ran parkrun s before competing in the Gwent League at Blaise. Rumour has it that they both ran from Ashton Court to Blaise… only joking. Maciej was in fact the first finisher at Little Stoke.

Matthew Brace and Nicola Bromhall both had PBs at Ashton Court, Matthew for the second week in succession, but this week’s Performance of the Week goes to Ashton Court stalwart Jacob Butterly who had his best time for almost a year.
