A total of 507 (3rd most) runners took part at Southsea parkrun event #286. It was into quite a strong breeze on the return leg, so times were a bit down for most. However, if you have registered on Run Britain Rankings with your parkrun ID, they grade the difficulty of each run depending on the conditions each week, so in a strong wind, a slower time but a good effort can lower your handicap.
Volunteers included Katherine Newell, Janet Sampson, Alice Bird Robert Turner-diamond and RD Andy Seek
39 BFC here! Becky Johns ran 01:10 PB, Richard Wade a best by 1:43 Reuben Hanson ran a fast debut here, and Nikki Tout her 4th best out of 31. Fiona Shaw ran her fastest since August 2016! Kirsty Davidson also ran a good time, her best for some 10 months. I managed to continue my recent improvement with 4th best age-graded time. There was a debut for Clarke, Cat's boyfriend. I knew she would get him running soon! Also Lucy Hunt ran her 3rd fastest in these conditions.
