Best times delivered by 25 in parkrun

PARKRUN: Because of very good weather conditions at 9am, the parkrun starter challenged the field of Saturday’s run to deliver at least 20 personal best times.

He was not disappointed when 25 of the 101 entrants met this mark, which again demonstrated how people can improve with regular activity.

Visitors came from Nottinghamshire, Northamptonshire, Hertfordshire and Wiltshire. It seems that parkrun is becoming another attraction for tourists to Great Yarmouth.

Walkers are always welcomed, although there were a few less this time, possibly because some are becoming runners.

Mark Thompson won the Sweatshop Prize for June. The volunteers are now included in this draw.

Congratulations went to Vinny Jones who completed the whole of the 65K with Dave Kelf and Ira Smith last week.

Plans are being made for another Wednesday evening handicap 5k, so watch these reports and the www.parkrun.com website for further details.
