There were relatively few Club members attending parkruns on Saturday, with the alternative attraction being the Gwent League at Brecon. (A big thank you for the massive club support at the Gwent League at Brecon).
Matt BATTENSBY was the first finisher at Ashton Court in a time of 17:22, David ENGLEDEW was the first VM55-59 in 20:49, with Alison ENGLEDEW finishing first in the equivalent female category in 24:10. Christine ROSE was the first VW50-64 in 25:58.
Charlotte TAYLOR-GREEN set a new female course record at Chipping Sodbury with a time of 17:35 an improvement on the previous best time by nine seconds. This was judged as the Performance of the Week. Charlotte finished in fifth place overall, with Daryl PHILLIPS in seventh place, in 19:06, also in the top ten.
Rob STEWART was the second overall at Pomphrey Hill in 17:21, with Greg Chance finishing fourth in 18:25 and David BRUCE ninth in 19:25. There was a PB for Graham GROUT, who recorded a time of 20:23, a forty-four second improvement.
At Minehead, John ROONEY was the first finisher in 18:27, while MATTHEW ROBINSON was third at Burnham & Highbridge in 18:32 and Graham CRUMP was tenth at Rogiet a relatively new parkrun on the Gwent Levels, in a time of 23:09. Rogiet is a rebranding of the short-lived Caldicot parkrun, which was forced into changing locations.
Next week, on the 18th November 2017, the long awaited Eastville parkrun will hold its inaugural run and should prove popular with Club members. This will be the first parkrun within the City boundaries.
