Parkrunners 03/08/2013

CRIMMO IS BACK!  At Banstead Woods, Mike Crimmen ran his first parkrun since suffering a stroke after his last run on 22/01/2011.  In recent weeks, with great encouragement and support from Carol and Ron Hoare, he has been run/walking a lap or so, but Saturday saw him complete his 95th parkrun, in 39:14, to the delight of all Banstead Woods regulars.  A click on the Banstead Wood news tab will show a photograph of him in Alan Collis’s report, rounding the last bend on his way to the finish.

The Wilsons split up this week. Chris and Dave were first timers at Bushy and Hanley respectively, and Lizzie had a PB in her 2nd Cardiff run.  Andrew Pengelly was back at Claisebrook Cove and John Matthews was a first timer at Faelledparken, finishing 8th in a field of 51.

Of the 13 members at Kingston, Matthew Young took another 8 secs off his PB whilst Libby Marchant missed hers by 2 secs.  Steve Ramek ran a PB at Nonsuch where Derick Wilkie again performed his ‘tail end Charlie’ duty, escorting another young lady first timer.

Richard Goulder was a first timer at Orpington, finishing 7th, and Danny Norman attended the inaugural Peterborough parkrun and finished 5th in 17:27, his best time in some weeks.  29 members ran parkrun this week, I hope as least as many turn up for the Mob Match tomorrow!
