Weekend Recap: DFYB!

Brueton parkrun:

A storming run by Rob Michaelson-Yeats goes unrecorded as he clocked a sub-18 but didn’t bring his barcode. Therefore this week’s first K&D place is a welcome return to Simon Bentley. Sporting a new go-faster haircut he clocked sub-18 and continued his return to superb running. Chris Morgan did a Rob Michaelson-Yeates so also goes unrecorded. Jonathon Bellman added a second K&D’er place to his resume. Bellman ran 18:44. Paul Bentley rounded out the top 3 by running 19:16.

Mary Heald led the way for our women with a swift 23:05 (with buggy I think!). She was being chased down by Louise Bell though in 23:18 and Jane Hunt in 23:33. You could throw a blanket over those three.

Congrats to Ed Bower who joined the 50 club this week.

Edinburgh parkrun: 
Neil Letham took in the views of beautiful Edinburgh as he enjoyed a relaxed 40:44.

Hackney Marshes:
Flat as a pancake, Hackney Marshes provides a super opportunity for good running. Louise Taylor took advantage of the Marshes to run 28:29.

Worcester Pitchcroft parkrun:
One of the quickest parkrun’s in the country saw Anthony Dutton doing horse impressions following his 19:35.

Peterborough parkrun:
Caroline Park put the Park in parkrun as she cropped up in Peterborough and ran an excellent 23:58.

Kingsbury Water parkrun:
Russel Palmer took on the lakes of Kingsbury as he jaunted round in 21:59.

Exeter Riverside parkrun:
An excellent course that takes in the Quay, Ian Naisbitt clocked a superb 22:32.

Kräherwald parkrun:
Amanda Crees became the first K&D’er to parkrun in Germany. Stuttgart is now officially K&D territory. Amanda ran 32:28.

WRRL – Stratford Summer 6: Party at Mary Arden’s House

Congrats to everyone who competed at the Stratford Summer 6 hosted by our buddies at Stratford AC. While the sun was out we all piled round to some woman called Mary’s house for a good old shindig. 

There were outstanding results with Age Group podium places for Richard Dixon and Susan Wassell, a much welcomed return to Green and Gold for Joe Read after a long injury lay off (Welcome Back JR!), and a 2nd place overall for Chris Sharp.

Also well done to Stratford on the new snazzy race t-shirts. Not as cool as our Arden 9 shirts of course but definitely a close second. They looked grand! #TshirtWarz
