Finally a bit of trawling around showed that Dan Slayford won the Salisbury parkrun in 18:01.
We also had runners at races on Sunday including the Fleet Half including Emma Jolley (who got just over 1:20:00, 4th woman of 898 and 3rd in Vet 35 age) and that was enough to get into a Veterans event for Britain later in the year and Bath Half where Lisa (2:14:58) and Steve Cross (1:55:10) ran in a race won by GB top runner Chris Thompson. Gemma Hoare was at the Reading Half. Official confirmed results are not on Run Britain yet.
Great running everyone as we approach some big Marathons at Manchester, Brighton, Southampton and London.
