Club family parkrun results and stats for 19th October 2013
Only nine family runs this weekend - low due to the Surrey League Cross Country.
Congratulations to Kerstin Luksch. Every parkrun has a points competition each year and the Gunnersbury year has just completed. I note that this year with my wonderings I've scored a solitary point at Gunnersbury. Kerstin on the other hand has been loyal and consistent and has accumulated a grand total of 3639 points to win the ladies competition by about 20%. Trophies are to be presented this Saturday - and the evidence suggests that Kerstin will be there to receive it.
I joined my sister at Cambridge parkrun but I wasn't the only wonderer this week - Steve Newell went to the inaugural run at Fulham Palace parkrun. Steve describes this course as being very flat with a few sharp corners and a very good tarmac surface other than for the last 40 metres on grass. Cambridge was a good course also but most of us would only do it if passing nearby. Between us club members have now run at 75 different parkruns. Steve and I are starting to think of a push towards the one hundred.
Finally one day we are going to have a really tight club battle over 5k - on Saturday my time was 24:56, Tony Hird was 24:55 and Joe Nolan ran a slow (for him) 25:01- all at different parkruns but if we get together and with Neil Frediani it could be a very interesting race!
Yorkshire Marathon 2013
STOP PRESS - World Masters Outdoor Championships
Adrian Haynes, representing Great Britain and Northern Ireland, made the final of the 800 metres but was only* able to finish seventh (of 11) in a time of 2:05:13.
* So this means that Adrian is only the seventh fastest Master in the world.
