World-Wide parkruns – Saturday 5th April 2014

There was a muted atmosphere at Ashton Court on Saturday 5th April 2014, seven days after the death of Steve Worland during the previous week’s parkrun. Steve was remembered in an address by Run Director, Geoff Keogh and a statement by Steve’s partner Jo was read out. A minute’s silence followed. This has been a very sad time for the Ashton Court parkrun, but Geoff can take great credit for his leadership during a very difficult week. Many of Steve’s relatives and friends ran in the parkrun, resulting in a new record attendance of 386. There were thirty-eight runners from Bristol & West.

There were 3 PBs from Paolo Baesso, Tanya Chowdhury and Jennifer Nowecki. Tanya is awarded the Performance of the Week on her thirtieth parkrun, all at Ashton Court. Paul Jefferson, Stuart O’Connell, Gary Jennings and Carron Downer were first in their respective age groups. For the ladies, Henrietta Anstey, Jane Colman and Maggie Salter were similarly successful.

At Little Stoke, Jessica Monk and Dave Taylor, in a double act, both improved by 1 minute 28 seconds. As David Coleman used to say “Quite remarkable”.

This week, Chipping Sodbury only attracted one runner from Bristol & West. However Mark Burley achieved a PB and was 1st SM25-29. There were three runners from the club at Pomphrey Hill with Alexander Whittaker and Robbie Hicks recording PBs. Scott Watkins was second overall at the inaugural Parke parkrun (that just slips off the tongue), near Bovey Tracey in Devon.

Thanks are also due to all the volunteers, particularly those at Ashton Court, who coped admirably under difficult circumstances. It was also good to see Noel Arthur back volunteering at Ashton Court, well on the road to recovery, after his recent operation.
