The run that caught the eye on Saturday was that of Matthew ROBINSON who had a time of 14:52 at Kingsbury Water. The results had it down as “assisted” i.e. by his dog, or maybe there was some extra urgency as there were two dogs chasing him. Notwithstanding that, an Age Grade of 100.78% is quite something. Matthew’s time was the second fastest across the whole of parkrun on Saturday.
In Bristol many of the Club’s runners were taking it easy before the Gwent Cross Country League match at Newport on Sunday. The Club’s first three finishers were hardly callow youths. Bill HULL was sixteenth in 20:01, Dave BEDWELL was twenty-first in 20:10 and Pete MOUNTAIN was in twenty-seventh place in 20:25. There was just one PB from Ben ARLETT in a time of 21:30, a twenty-two second improvement.
At Chipping Sodbury, David AWDE was the first finisher in 16:40 and Isabel MEDCROFT was the first female in 22:21. At Pomphrey Hill Polly AINSLEY and Jessica BRUCE were first and second females in times of 20:36 and 22:43 respectively. Bob COX had a sixteen second PB in a time of 22:58 to earn him the Performance of the Week.
At Stonehouse Maciej BIASLOGONSKI and Helen Newberry were in first place and first female, while Nathan HEMINGBROUGH and Charlotte KNOWLES occupied the two second places at Wotton, with John O’DWYER in third position.
