Weekly Round Up – 21st August 2023

Never ones to miss an opportunity, going on holiday for some Peelers opens up opportunities to run a parkrun in a different location and this was exactly what Caroline Evans did!  Running at the Whinlatter Forest (Lake District) parkrun meant taking on one of the hardest and hilliest routes in the country but Caroline crossed the line in 33:57, finishing first in her age category.

Closer to home, Tim Clark was first Peeler to finish at Kingsbury parkrun in a time of 22:24, followed by Phil Neale (23:19); Ben Dorkins (23:32); Darren O’Leary (24:06); Simon Gordon (26:03); Sophie Galloway (27:56); Dave Fern (29:23); Emma Livingstone (29:41); Neal Dempsey (29:53); Claire Guffick (31:35); Sandra Ingram (32:27); Roger Eastaff (32:56); Martyn Candy (36:12); Helen Dempsey (36:50); Lee Guffick (37:30); Jo Insley (44:43); Stephen Andrews (50:31); Sarah French (58:05); Wendy Bowyer (58:53); Chris Norris (62:04) and Alison Dolphin (62:37).

Parkrun tourists included: Joy Sykes (35:01) at Conkers; Mark Boffey (24:57) and Sarah Boffey (31:27) at Pontypool; Mick Stevenson (34:12) at Warwick Racecourse; Emma Pick (19:44); Mike Shelton (21:28) and Roger Lloyd (25:56) at Beacon Park, Lichfield; Allen King (21:56); Chris Bennett (25:14) and Jackie Tierney (28:45) at Abbey Park, Leicester and Mike Hughes (37:36) at Holbrooks, Coventry.
