    Weekend Recap: parkrun catchup

    The big news at parkrun this weekend was a stunning 16:31 by Bedford AC's Katrina Wootton breaking our very own Jane Evans' course record. I hope Jane doesn't feel too disappointed, Wootton is #16 All Time in the UK over 10k. That 16:31 is the 2nd fastest UK parkrun in 2016 by a female athlete.  It show's just how great Jane Evan's course record was that it took an international class athlete to take it from her!
