parkrun Report – Saturday 25th November 2017

27 Nov

Written this week for the first time by Anna Ford.

A very chilly parkrun for most this Saturday. Ashton Court found itself moving the start and finish line due to ice in its usual spot, and Pomphrey Hill delayed its start time by 15 minutes to ensure the course was sufficiently defrosted.

Numbers settled at Eastville this week, with 421 in attendance. Philip PARRY put out a strong performance as second finisher in 17:40. Naomi AYLWIN was first female in a time of 20:26. Brad PONTIN came in fifth, with an overall PB of 17 seconds, running 18:14. A great performance from Bill HULL – the first VM 45-49 (19:16), and Joseph HULL first JM 11-14 (20:02). A great day for juniors at Eastville, as Jemima DUTTON was first JW 11-14 (25:51).

366 runners got out and faced the icy morning at Ashton Court – 31 from Bristol & West, the highest finisher was Peter GANDON in fifth, clocking 19:17. The Vet Women had a very strong showing – Tanya CHOWDHURY first VW 40-44 (23:27), Alison ENGLEDEW first VW 55-59 (23:43), Liz HILL first VW 35-39 (24:35), Maggie SALTER second VW 55-59 (24:40), Henrietta ANSTEY first VW 45-49 (25:03).

230 runners charged the hill at Pomphrey Hill this morning. Molly CHILTON had a fantastic run, first Female in 20:45, and an overall parkrun PB of 9 seconds.

307 at Chipping Sodbury – Dan SCHOFIELD came in first with a great performance of 17:47. Fleur COCKLEY is awarded performance of the week this time – 21:35, an overall parkrun PB of a whopping 58 seconds, third Female and first VW 40-44.

An incredible run was had by Charlotte TAYLOR-GREEN at Cardiff, first Female in 16:50 – an overall PB by 44 seconds!

Tourist runners included Daryl and Martha PHILLIPS at Swindon, George SALTER, Bruce SELLERS at Hampstead Heath and Alexa PARKER came in second Female at Wanstead Flats in her last run before changing her first claim club on 1st December 2017..

Finally, Steve Grant forwarded the following useful notes aimed at potential tourists in West Wales: “The course sits in the country park of the same name near Gorslas and Llandeilo

a bit up from Swansea and the end of the M4.  The route is just short of two

laps on a mostly gravel track with plenty of sharp up and downs and one

particular uphill drag to the top of the run.  You can see the lake from the top

and then work your way down to the lakeside following a nicely winding path to

the short tarmac/trail/tarmac session before starting lap 2. The normal

attendance is around 70 which is a pleasant change from the busier home parkruns.

The cafe is right next to the finish line. Would recommend if you are

in the area.”
