|Suns Comes Out for Runners on Wormwood Scrubs|
Charlotte Le Rougetel reports on the latest Parkruns
Parkrun 151 - April 26
Following a deluge in London on Friday, the ground was spike-friendly soft again at Wormwood Scrubs this weekend.
Parkrun 150 - April 19
A slightly chaotic start for the new Wormwood Scrubs parkrun director this morning with the keys only turning up ten minutes before start, but with everyone mucking in we managed to get markers out and a make-do finish line in place to start the race almost on time .
Weather was gorgeous once again – a slight headwind was a pleasant antidote to the sunshine that greeted us on the second lap.
Thanks to the Easter break, it was our smallest field for a while with just 28 runners, including six first timers. Special shout out to my sister Katie Taggart and brother in law who are Pennington Flash parkrun regulars.
Neilson Hall sped home to take first place in an incomprehensibly fast 15:57. Congratulations too to Rosie Vallance – our first female home with a time of 22:32. And well done to Idris Fertout and, oh yeah me, who secured new PBs.
A big thank you to all our volunteers – Ben Le Rougetel, Garnet Walters, Victoria and Ava Carter, Idris Fertout and Peter Jordan.
Finally, congratulations to Andrea Broughton for finishing the London Marathon last weekend in 3:40 and a very happy 50th birthday from all of us.
