Run Report 59: Olympic Efforts


The rain held off, the coolth held on, the parkrunners gathered, and the times recorded. Despite slightly anti-social weather there was a milestone, many personal bests, and lots of pride. Every parkrunner can be happy with their start to the day.

Newcomer Welcome

Seven first timers with records now to break, and seven unknown with barcodes now to take. Plenty of reasons to return to the course.

Usain Blot doesn't have one parkrun to his name, but Jason Richter has achieved his 50th, Issac Everett and Alison Cartner have become first finishers, Harm Van Rees lead our age/gender grade rank, and Chris O'Berin, Brendan Zoch, Ann-Marie Wangdi, Alex Sutton, Hanako Aono, Tamara Cottingham, Karleen Farley, Angela Graystone, Belinda Dobbin, Elizabeth Hartland, Marg Sheridan and Tricia King all recorded personal bests. In a way they are all better than Usain Bolt.
