BFC Race Reports- Bretts Parkrun Roundup

Parkrun report from 20th October

by Brett Rumfitt

Parkrun report from 20th October

A very quick parkrun report from 20th October (and a little extra from the week before). Only 2 venues and most either missing it, going careful or volunteering. Your next report should be the GSR with Kev's brilliant spreadsheet saving hours of time.

A total of 221 runners took part at Portsmouth Lakeside parkrun event #129, where Barbara Hathaway ran a new Lakeside and APPB (All parkrun PB, a new acronym for me) by 0:16. Excellent time Barbara in your 134th parkrun.

A total of 344 runners took part at Southsea parkrun event #265. Volunteers included Andy SeekAlice BirdDan SlayfordJanet SampsonKatherine NewellDean SchubertKam FanRobert Turner-diamond and Kev Budd. The route was moved slightly to the east to accommodate the Great South 5k taking place an hour later. We all assembled on the beach for the pre-run briefing.

There was a debut for Richard Stevens and a new PB by Victoria Parsons by 2:01. Darren Matthews ran with Jenson in his buggy, Rebecca Niles ran her 3rd fastest out of 83 @ Southsea, Cat Underwood her 3rd best of 26 here too.Billy Jules Bilton ran his best since May.

Both Rebecca Niles and Keith Caunt have milestone runs next time, 100 and 150 respectively.
