The latest club parkrun visit was held on Saturday, with 12 members taking on the challenging (hilly!) course at Temple Newsam. James Wright (20:22) was first back to the finish line in front of the impressive stately home, followed by Nicola Carter, who was first female overall, in a time of 22:09. Graeme Kilvington and Andy Roberts were neck and neck coming up the final hill, with finish times of 24:15 and 24:16 respectively. Following them were Sue Morley (25:53), John Greveson (25:51), Clare Mckenzie (26:43), Anthony Everitt (26:52), Eric Morley (28:09), Karen McNaughton (30:00), Edna Wood (31:29) and Tracy Allison (32:06). A few pictures from the event are below – please see the Gallery for more pictures.
At Harrogate, Conrad Garcia recorded a time of 20:48 and he was joined on the Stray by Nick Wallen (25:09).
At a foggy Fountains Abbey, Guy Close smashed his PB and achieved his first sub-20 minute parkrun with a time of 19:56. Julian Carr was also in attendance at the World Heritage site, clocking a time of 23:14.
Our next club parkrun visit will be on Saturday 7th November. A draw will take place at training on Tuesday 13th October and the result published shortly after. The options are York, Bradford (Lister Park), Skipton, Wetherby, Roundhay Park or Woodhouse (Leeds). Get it in your diary – it’s a great way to start the weekend!
