Ten Langport parkrunners this week, three local venues, four PB's (well done Amanda P, Grahame, Hazel and Sarah).
Cathy and Paul P were at their favourite Longrun. According to the Longrun report:
"This week 338 people (199 men and 139 women, representing 27 different clubs) ran, jogged and walked the course, which was in a horrendous condition, very muddy, lots of huge puddles and icy. It was -1C when the volunteers first arrived and they could not start setting up the course because it was too icy to use the normal start and too muddy to finish in the usual place! The worst of the icy parts were gritted and the course was adjusted to avoid the worst of the ice and mud which meant that some runners started off by standing in a large puddle!"
Dave G, Maggie, daughter Sarah and Amanda P were at Ninesprings
Hazel, Grahame and Gavin were at Burnham& Highbridge. It was Pacer week here, maybe helping those PBs. Their report tells us:
" -2°C improving to +1°C during a run can only mean one thing...thermal underpants! It was a cold, icy and damp start to Burnham and Highbridge parkrun today, but the forecast was dry and the event enticed 435 runners, walkers and rhino's (yes a rhino) to turn up."
Shepton Mallet had to to cancel: "Good morning parkrunners. Following an early course inspection we have had to make the decision to cancel today’s parkrun. There are patches of ice on the course and as temperatures are not due to rise we cannot guarantee your safety. We apologise and hope you enjoy your weekend."
Henstridge had to change their course a little due to the icy and amended the results after later realising the course was short:
"Thank you to everyone that joined us today, the results are up (each time has had 3% added due to short course), photos will be up soon although the camera battery died in the fog, so sorry for shortage."
