A few hardy Peelers braved the rain to turn out for the regular Kingsbury Water Park parkrun on Saturday morning.
First home for the club was Mark Webster who was 10th overall in a strong 19.18 mins. He was followed by Darren O’Leary in 22.27 mins, Ash Goodman (24.48), Sandra Ingram (27.18), Neal Dempsey (27.56), Jackie Tierney (28.30), Helen Dempsey (29.00) and Michael Stevenson (29.08).

The annual Abbott Trail 10k event was held in the woods and hills of Hopwas on Sunday and in heavy rain. Rob Mace completed the distance in 42.45 mins and in fourth place overall. Mark Webster finished in fifth place overall. Helen and Neal Dempsey both finished the event in 1:08.02 hrs. Ash Goodman completed the Staffordshire Knot 5 mile race in 37.43 mins. Martin Hollamby completed the first and fifth legs of the Bob Graham ultra event in the Lake District. The overall event covers 100km with 8,800 metres of vertical ascent, the same as the height of Mount Everest!
