Only local parkruns this week: Street, Longrun and Ninesprings.
Lower than usual numbers at Street. Maybe this was due to how the mud has increased in recent weeks? However, news from Street:
"Work commences this week to fix the infamous Rice Gap. We know, you're as devastated as we are, no more mud pits. Gone but not forgotten, rest in peace, Rice Gap."
(The Rice Gap is the part of the course which joins the two fields).
Grahame, Cathy and Gavin at Longrun. No parkrunning Paul this week. News from Longrun:
"The carpark at Bridgwater and Taunton College (Taunton Campus) next to the path that runs down to the barn has now reopened. It was closed due to damage caused by badgers. They have now been successfully relocated nearby and the damage has been repaired. parkrunners are welcome to park their cars there on a Saturday or Sunday morning. There is a cost of £1 for parking."
Seven lovely Langport runners at Ninesprings - including Dave completing his 190th, Amanda P very close to matching her recent PB and topping this week's table. It's good to see Liz running too and Kate achieving our only PB with a massive 41 seconds off last week's PB and her 3rd Yeovil PB of this year (and it is only February!).
News from Ninesprings:
"With Valentine’s Day coming up feel free to come on Saturday 15th February dressed in hearts & what have you!
The weekly reminder please that all runners need to keep to the right hand side of the course throughout the run – unfortunately we had reports of runners still on their way out to Pen Mill being bumped off the course by runners who were right across the path on their way back in.
The paths are narrow in much of the course and if you keep right at all times, we should all be OK!
We had a couple of barcodes go home with runners this week – if you have one, can you bring it back next week please."
