Janet Sampsonand Katherine Newell were tailwalkers. Other volunteers were Alice Bird, Fiona Cfb, Liam John Bradshaw, Marie, Martyn Threader, Robert Turner-diamond and myself.

The highlights were a 20 sec PB for Fiona Shaw just 2 weeks after her last one and 7th female, Jason Smith just 4 secs outside his recent PB and really fast runs from Dave Rees-Whelan, Steven Parkerand Ian Briscoe. In the Age-Graded times we got 2nd,4ht and 6th with Fiona Shaw, myself and Steven Parker

It was my birthday and as Dan del Piccolo overtook me, he played Happy Birthday on his phone, then sped off.

At Havant event 413, 254 took part with our Louise Griffin here.

267 runners took part at event 4236 in the park at Netley Abbey but as Becci Knowles (who ran an APPB beating last weeks Southsea PB by 16 secs) told me it was on a boring course of laps altered from normal.

At event 7 at new parkrun Itchen Valley, Sonny Locke ran with 276 others. That's our fastest time there.

If you don't want to be missed of these reports, please make sure your parkrun profile has Baffins as your club, as I don't know all the names. Also if you no longer belong to the club you can change your details too.
