Parkrun Report 26th January 2019

Parkrun Report 26th January 2019

Here is my Parkrun report from Saturday 26th January 2019. We shall begin at Southsea where the 2nd most ever (500) took part. I made it 31 Baffins runners. Janet Sampson volunteered along with Katherine Newell. Steven Parker and I had another titanic battle with Steven just having enough left after I took 2 k to catch him. It really helps when someone is around your speed and you can focus. Anyway I shall console myself with 5th best age-graded time!

Alanna Burchett ran her 2nd fastest and Rebecca Niles her 4th best of 92 at Southsea. Interesting they both stepped up from Brett's Buzzards Monday Group to Denise's last week? Do I claim credit or Denise? I think it is more the long runs that are paying off on a Sunday! Scott Cobb made an impressive debut here.
A total of 127 runners took part at Queen Elizabeth parkrun event #304. Dan Slayford was 2nd in a new QE PB by 0:10

Another successful parkrun Saturday for the club with members helping by volunteering and pacing others. For anyone wanting to put Baffins Fit Club as your parkrun club, you just need to open your parkrun result email, click on profile and add us. It helps me with sorting results. I do know some who are registered with other clubs or no club and do look for them but will inevitably miss some!
Baffins members also ran the Brutal on Saturday (we've seen the photos you mad, muddy lot!) and Fran Waterman ran a Maverick race too. Anyone wishing to do a quick write-up on their races is most welcome.
I will see many of you at either Lakeside parkrun this Saturday and the Portsmouth Coastal half on Sunday. Have a good week.
