4 Mar 2023

Week 9

A cool but dry March morning greeted our members at parkrun this morning, where at Alvaston, Martin S was running his 100th parkrun and so celebrated with cake, and metaphorically speaking put the icing on it with a cracking course PB! Well done Martin!

A tidy group of Sinfin runners also turned up to help him eat it, with a further ridiculous gaggle of other PBs from Catherine W finishing in 6th place in a blistering 18.31, Chelsea W, Lorna C, Matthew B, Paul W and Sharon C! And it didn't stop there, with Catherine W, Connah B, Dan W, Danielle S, Lorna C, Sharon C, and Tony A landing first in their age categories too! Excellent stuff.

Helping out at Alvaston were David L, Maria G and Raymond E - many thanks guys for your amazing contributions.

Over in Markeaton, Jane W and Graham Y were both first in their age categories, and down the road in Long Eaton, five of our runners hit the tarmac with Sam B finishing 5th in a magnificent 18.01! Chris M was first in his age category and Tomas H made his debut.

There was a smattering of tourism too. Over in Birmingham Deanna S and Richard B were making debuts at Cannon Hill parkrun, and across in Leicestershire Kevin P and Robert L checked out the new parkrun at Beacon Hill Country Park, with Kevin finishing 11th on quite a tough course, largely uphill for 2 miles. At Brierley Sarah R made her debut, and Pascal S made his first visit to Rushcliffe in Nottingham.

And finally a couple of further afield parkruns to mention: travelling south was Fiona F at Witney in Oxfordshire, and the greatest mileage this week goes to Duncan C, finishing in 7th spot at Newborough Forest parkrun over in Anglesey, North Wales.

Some brilliant running today from the Green Team! 💚💜
