Comment on this story on the

Parkrun 163 - July 19

My, oh my. Running Wormwood Scrubs parkrun in 80% humidity was certainly a challenge. On my way round, as my pace got slower and slower, I wondered if anyone could possibly have scored a course PB. The answer, a resounding ‘yes’. We actually saw seven PBs this morning. Big well done to everyone.

44 runners joined us, of whom six were first timers, so welcome to them, we hope to see you again. It was also lovely to see Cliff COLLINS, who returned to try and take back the course record in his age bracket (VM75-79). The bad news – he didn’t quite manage it. The good news - hopefully we’ll get to see him again soon for another try.

Congratulations to Manuel CORRIENTE who ran his 50th parkrun today. And to Pete J COLLINS who was first over the line in 18:31 and to Rosemary HUNTER, first in the women’s placing with 25:32 – both runners were first timers at Wormwood Scrubs.

Current standing in the men's annual points competition:
Rizwan RAUF (Unattached) 525 pts.
Alessandro EUSEPI (Unattached) 492 pts.
Fraser BRYDSON (Thames Valley Harriers) 443 pts.

And in the women’s annual points competition:
Marion BRYDSON (Thames Valley Harriers) 460 pts.
Charlotte LE ROUGETEL (Unattached) 398 pts.
Kirstie TEW (Unattached) 377 pts.

Big thank you to all of our volunteers, of course, Marion BRYDSON, Fraser BRYDSON, James DOE, Robert FERGUSON, Martin GILLIES, Charlotte LE ROUGETEL, Ben LE ROUGETEL and Rizwan RAUF.

And a personal thank you from me to Riz for shouting encouragement at me on that last ‘hill’.

Enjoy your week!
