Parkrun Report 11th May 2019

Parkrun Report 11th May 2019

Here is my parkrun report for 11th May 2019
We shall start at Havant, where co-founder Julie Allan Fuller celebrated her 50th (parkrun not birthday!). A massive migration to the north-east of the city meant that 39 Baffineers celebrated with Julie and obviously, there was cake afterwards. The run was won by Chichester legend James Baker who nearly always wins the local parkruns. There were numerous Havant PBs, for Steve Cross a huge 4:29, Rich Harris Roty 0:54, James Yorke a great 3:34, Paul Griffin 0:49 Louise Griffin 0:34 (and 2nd lady), Jason Smith 0:08, Ian Briscoe 0:14, Kevin Rowsell 8:35!!!, Dave Ollie Oliver 0:48, Matthew McLean 0:07, Kim Biggs 0:33, Colette Brown 1:28, Colin Southwell 0:03, Cerys Walton a huge 4:30 and last but not least Maria Rowsell a great 2:34. Maria kindly ran with me on my first run for what seemed like ages (actually only 11 days but....) and then sped off on a good sprint finish at the end. Jon Olsen ran 24:30 but .........forgot his barcode!!!!! Others such as Kev Budd and Helen Mayhead were just outside their best Havant times.
A total of 283 (39 BFC) runners took part at Havant parkrun event #365

I hope I haven't missed anyone out. I shall be doing my Coaching Course this weekend so no parkrun. It is right by the Eastleigh parkrun but annoyingly starts at 9:00 too! It also means I miss one of 4 great local events, the Bognor 10k where we will have a large contingent, the Clanfield Challenges (12k & 20k) where we will also be well-represented and the Southampton (Netley) 10k. For those running any of these and any other races or parkruns this coming weekend, have a great time.
