- Bretts Parkrun Roundup

Brett's parkrun review for 3rd February 2024

by Brett Rumfitt

A total of 135 runners took part at Great Salterns parkrun event #111

On another day when Lakeside was off, we welcomed another larger than usual number of runners & walkers including some from Gosport.

Jack Ingleby was 1st for the 2nd week in a row and in another PB (10 secs)In the Age-Graded Percentages, Jason Smith was 10th, Jack was 4th, Richard Jones (Linda Turner) 3rd and myself 2nd.

It seemed many Baffins runners were about 1 minute slower than their PBs??

A total of 54 runners took part at Yamba parkrun event #395

Ian ran a different parkrun in Australia and was 9th male and 6th best Age-Grade.

The course is in Ford Park, Yamba, NSW. The course is run on a mixture of grass and pavement. Course Description

The course is two laps, starting and finishing on the grassed area near the Ferry Wharf. Runners head west on the grass for approx. 100m before diagonally crossing the grass and turning left on to the pavement. The course continues west along the pavement and around the corner for 10m before turning around and doubling back. Keeping the river on the left, runners will enjoy fantastic scenery as they head east alongside the Clarence River, past the Caravan Park before again turning around prior to the pavement ending, opposite Whiting Beach. Runners then head west again and complete the second and final lap. The home run consists of turning a 90 degree turn as you leave the pavement near the same point it was entered, where they run the home straight for about 70m.
