Hughes conquers the elements for Parkrun win

PUBLISHED: 15:37 03 January 2013

Very windy conditions turned the Gorleston Parkrun into a race of four quarters - two against the wind and two with it. Along the promenade it was plain sailing but on the cliff top it was a real battle (twice). Only four PBs were posted by 97 runners . Perennial front-runner David Hughes won his 162nd run in 19:14. Second was Tony Arnell in 19:26 and third Marc Evans in 19:28. Megan Soanes, of City of Norwich AC, was clear winner of the ladies race in an excellent 20:18. She was sixth overall. Second was Charlie Arnell in 22:53 and third Janina Domiczew in 24:53. In the unofficial Parkrun held at 9am on Christmas morning 12 brave souls enjoyed their start to Christmas Day.
