Just a note to thank you for your help and support last week, it was very

Club parkrun results for Saturday 12th July
Lots of widespread activity - Two more parks added to the list - Kings Lynn (Richard Ruffell) and Whitley Bay (Barry Walters). Roderick also toured to Lyme Park (see below) where his only consolation for a slow time is that it was slightly faster than Ray Hampton's previous time by a club member. Gary Rushmer finally made it to 50 after six months on 49! Tony Barnwell reached 50 as well this week. Alan Anderson must be benefitting from the sprint races - he did his best time for three months. Had we all been running in the same park then there would have been a sprint finish between four members for 24:00.

Updated parkrun stats: www.barunner.org.uk/results/ba_parkrun_park_totals.xls
I ran at Lyme Park in the Peat District on Saturday having chosen that venue as a great looking halfway house parkrun between London and Yorkshire. I was meeting another parkrunner by the name of Gregory Bailey who was running his 51st UK parkrun at his 51st different parkrun venue and in doing so was breaking my obscure parkrun record. I still hold the International "record" at 52 different parkruns but I know that that is only for a week or so since Gregory intends to get up to at least sixty. For more details about this achievement and the Lyme Park parkrun check out the write-up of Saturday's event - very well written though I say so myself - http://www.parkrun.org.uk/lymepark/news/ .
