A total of 426 runners took part at Southsea parkrun event #345

Finally at Southsea, I volunteered and had a great time by the pier cheering everyone on. Also met a family who I tried to recruit and a local runner who had never heard of parkrun!!!!????

If you haven't volunteered, please do, it's great fun and a good way of staying involved if you cannot run for any reason. I also got a free coffee!

Caitlin John Burchett ran her 2nd PB in a row since the restart beating her last week's time by 16 secs.

Fiona Shaw continues to run superbly and also got another PB, her 3rd since the restart taking a massive 25 secs of her time of 14th August. She was also 9th female finisher. In the age-graded times she was third behind 2 exceptional athletes, over 80% which is National Class. Ian Briscoe (2nd fastest) and Kam Fan (5th fastest) were not far off their best here.
