parkrun Report – Saturday 12th August 2017

Bristol & West runners ran at twenty-six parkruns on Saturday. Several of them were refugees from Ashton Court, where the run was cancelled due to the Balloon Festival.

Matt BATTENSBY was the first finisher at Riverfront in Newport in a time of 16:28. David ENGLEDEW was in eighth place and first VM55-59 in 19:06. Daniel MORGAN and David SALTER were also first in their respective age categories. Alison ENGLEDEW was the second female with a time of 21:59. Maggie SALTER and Liz HILL sixth and eighth females respectively.

Another first finisher was new Club member David EAGON at Shepton Mallet in a time of 17:36. Ben ROBINSON was the Club’s fastest runner in a time of 13:23 at Penrose; that’s quicker than the times Muktar EDRIS and Mo FARAH managed later in the day. We are not sure if he had canine assistance on this occasion but, nevertheless, it is still an excellent time. This was the fastest parkrun in the UK on Saturday.

Also running 5ks in East London on Saturday, Maciej BIALOGONSKI and Helen NEWBERRY were first male and first female at Beckton in times of 16:23 and 18:16 respectively.

Another first female was Rebecca COLQUHOUN at parkrun de Fontainebleau, where she finished in 25:51. At the same location Tom WHITE was the first SM30-34 in 26:16.

The Performance of the Week goes to Nathan MARCHANT who was second at Wotton in 19:16, which was a PB by 45 seconds. PBs were few on Saturday, and the only others spotted were by Matt BAIRD and Bartosz WALENCIK, both at Pomphrey Hills. Rosey MUSHENS was the first female finisher here in a time of 21:36.

There were another two first finishers; Jarlath MCKENNA had a time of 15:17 at Canon Hill, Birmingham, while Steve MITCHELL completed the Cardiff course in 15:23. These times were the seventh and eighth fastest in the country.
