The promise of an informal cross-country presentation, prizes plus cake was enough to lure a large number of Ali’s gang to take part in the 5k park run. Despite my reservations about this distance the lads proved how fit they are and provided some inspirational performances. To break 20 minutes was always on the cards so it was no surprise when Tomek and Eoin finished in 19.55 and 19.57 respectively. They were well supported by Fred, Misha, Ishmael and Jay not far behind.
There were also some very encouraging performances from newer, younger members along with several parents who well entered into the spirit of the morning.
Once everybody had got their breath back a brief resume of last year’s winter fixtures was followed by large amounts of cake and laughter.
Thank you Eastville parkrun.
