Another busy parkrunday on Saturday, with congratulations to Pete Whitehouse on getting a big PB at Coventry and knocking Captain Bandito Wayne out of the parkrun competition. Also at Coventry, Robyn McSharry notched up her 150th parkrun.
Elsewhere, Pawel Langer was a first-timer at Krakow and ran his fastest ever parkrun time, the Wheatleys were first-timers at Kingsbury Water, Vicky Brewin was a first-timer at Braunstone and Catherine Gough was 2nd lady at Durham.
Thanks to Jackie for the following report:
52 runners including 5 guests. It was good to see so many members there, even if we don’t always know if we’re coming or going!!
At one point it became rather manic at the finish line, as 5 or 6 runners crossed the line at the same time as a truck. If anyone has any queries about the results between position 25, Rachel, and position 35, Amarjit, please let me know.
The final race in the handicap series is on Sunday, 10th September at The Greenway, Burton Green.
19 Sphinx runners ran the latest race in the Warwickshire Road Race League, the Stratford Summer 6. Conditions were damp and cool and helped Pawel, Paul C, Amarjit, Imran, Andy H, Rachael, Vickie and Sally-Anne to PBs (according to RunBritain).
The next WRRL race is the BRAT 5k on Weds, 9th August.
