With Storm Dennis battering britain plenty of parkrun’s put plans on hold, but Brueton bravely battled through. Even gale force gusts couldn’t get to Gareth Wainwright who gapped the field in a good old 16:44. He was followed by the traditional two – George de Bolla and Habib Farazmand who ran 17:31 and 17:55. K&D Put five in the top six, split only by a sole BRAT.
Kerry Ann Thompson took the title for the K&D Women in 21:40. Kerry led Kate Marsh (23:22) and Sarah Cattell round (26:31). Technically Izzy Davis was first in 21:28 but she hasn’t added K&D to her parkrun profile yet and we love an excuse to pick on someone. We didn’t mention George de Bolla for the first 12 months of his K&D existance.
Putting the Storm into Stomont was Monica Green. Monica ran an excellent 22:07
Any excuse for cake, Darren John travelled to Telford to tackle their 7th Birthday party. Darren ran 18:08 getting caught out by a naughty uphill finish similar to Cannon Hill
Babbs Mill parkrun:
With no storm damage Babbs Mill was able to go ahead on Sat. Mr. Babbs Mill (aka Phill Wood), ran 22:41
Wide open and wideswept but prime for perfect views over beautiful Birmingham. Nicky Evans nipped round in 25:38 leading Nigel Foster who finished just behind in 25:42. Victoria Cook’s 26:49 rounded out the troops.
A suburb in Wales apparently. A new parkrun for our record books, claimed by Steve Marks in 33:26
Torbay Velo parkrun:
David John ran 30:38 while dodging puddles the size of the ocean in Torbay
