It was a timely "Back to School" theme at Montacute for their 5th Anniversary. Dennis, Amanda B, Steve S, Mike and Catherine ran. Catherine came back to Parkrun after a 5 year break with a PB. Mike was pacing himself ready for the Brewery run later in the day.
Over at Longrun, Nicky was trialing her Flanci wear. The tights seem to be quite speedy as Nicky topped our table this week! Regulars Paul and Cathy P were amongst the 399 runners in Taunton. Cathy achieved a huge 42 second PB and moved into 60%+ for the first time in her 23 runs. Paul and James came joint second in the percentages.
It will be Longrun's 5th Anniversary on 6th October. There will also be a fancy dress theme; undisclosed as yet. There will also be a celebration at The Coal Orchard the night before.
Finally, at Street, three of us ran. James PB-ed by 26 seconds, Martin was running with Benjamin and I came back for a second time. When marshalling this course, although very well organised and enthuiastically marshalled, it seemed a little featureless and repetitive. However, running it was not as I had expected. I have very much enjoyed the run both weeks. I would highly recommend a visit. Thanks also to Brian Clark's for his support on each lap. Hope to see you back running soon after your op.
No one left the county to Parkrun this week!
