Gorleston Parkrun

A record turn-out of 180 participants on a fine early spring morning celebrated the 200th Gorleston Cliffs Parkrun which has taken place every Saturday morning since its start in April 2009.

Of these 44 achieved personal best times. Nick Overy has done 196 runs and Howard Wilcox 195, so it won‘t be long before both reach their own 200 run targets.

The clear winner was Mark Thompson of GYRR in an excellent time of 17:11. He was followed by Marc Evans in 18:41 and David Hughes in 18:46.

The ladies race was won by 12 year old Jessica Sparkes from Bungay Black Dog RC in 22:52, her first win. Second was Tracey Prewer of Lowestoft RR in 22:59 and third Tamsin Desborough of GYRR in 23:42. Carole Sponge has been nominated as this month’s SweatShop prize winner for her devoted Volunteering. Congratulations and many thanks to Carole.

This Sunday, there will be an extra, unofficial 5k parkrun starting and finishing at Jay Jay’s promenade café at 9.30am to coincide with the well-advertised Cystic Fibrosis fund raising dipathon in the sea.

Runners can gain sponsorship (forms available at Saturday’s usual parkrun or on the day) or by donation for joining in with the mass splash at about 10.30am.

Here’s hoping for at least some warm sunshine that morning and a swift run back up the beach for a warm cuppa in the café.
