- Bretts Parkrun Roundup

Brett's parkrun review 4th November 2023 (the soggy one)

by Brett Rumfitt

Great Salterns parkrun

A total of 43 runners took part at Great Salterns parkrun event #96

The course was as wet as I've seen it.

Paul Osborne finished 1st for the 3rd time and had the 2nd best Age Grade. Laura Richardson and Alex Yorke were in the top 10 female finishers. Southsea was cancelled due to parts of the sea wall being deposited on the prom, but the conditions and weather meant we only had a handful from there. We also had Steve Bullock and some of his Grasshoppers too after their hill session at 7:30am!

Kev Budd ran for the 1st time since July here.

Thanks to the volunteers

We are very grateful to the volunteers who made this event happen: Julie ALLAN, Lysanne BROOMFIELD, Denise COURTNEY, Ian GREGORY, Louise GRIFFIN, Jim HAILSTONE, Jennifer LAZELL, Alisdair LITTLE, Jen LITTLE, Helen MAYHEAD, Edward MORRIS, Brett RUMFITT, Sally RUMFITT, Debbie SPICER, Clive TUCKER, Maria TUCKER, Janice WELLSTEAD, Samuel WINTON, Nikki WRIGHT

Why not get involved and volunteer? This week we need another timer, a token sorter, someone to give the First Timers Brief and some marshals please.
