Parkrun report for Saturday 23rd February 2018

Parkrun Report for Saturday 23rd February 2018. A large number of the club were in Malta for the Half and Full Marathons (which were unfortunately cancelled due to exceptionally bad weather on the island). More were at the Brutal and on Sunday we had competitors at the Duathlon in Southsea and the Rowans 5k. Even so we still had 23 at Southsea for parkrun. Conditions were quite warm but a bit of an easterly slowed us a bit to the turnaround. As Rocksby's cafe, soon to be The Briny is still closed, we go to the Deep Blue on the end of the Pier mainly for post-parkrun sustenance.
A total of 353 runners took part at Wakefield Thornes parkrun event #218. Alex Millham sneaked in his 100th parkrun (well done Alex) accompanied by James in the West Riding of Yorkshire

Hopefully all the Maltese runners are back safely. I know they enjoyed some of the food and drink but the conditions were so bad that venturing outside the hotel was not always safe.
