Parkrun report – February 2019

February is already parkrun history! The shortest month saw a drop in the number of parkruns completed by Striders (‘only’ 71!) but this was probably due to the great Fountains’ Café closure and a weekend of windy cancellations! In fact, the club were better travelled than in January with 17 different locations visited across the four weekends! We also saw our first ‘first finishers’ of the new year, at Wetherby and Aberdare, and our first overseas parkrun of the year. So here we go… remember that what is listed here is: Finishing Position, Gender Position, Name and Time.


2nd February

A quiet start to the month due no doubt to the extreme cold, leaving courses frosty and hard across the area. Add to that the Fountains Abbey Café renovation and many took the opportunity of a lie-in. Your editor found the cold had actually turned muddy Wetherby into a decent hard-track though, and bagged the first ‘first finish’ of the year.

5 runs. Yes – 5 runs! To be fair, Harrogate and Fountains were both cancelled due to the horrid wind and it was pretty grim out there. So just the 5 heroes to report on!

16th February

Denmark: the home of Jan Mølby, Carlsberg, Lego and morose, dimly-lit BBC2 detective series. It’s also the home of the well-established Amager Fælled parkrun in Copenhagen – visited by Jo Baxter! Doubtless frustrated at the previous week’s cancellation, Team Strider were also out in force at Harrogate, whilst Tom returned to his habitual blistering form at ‘Fabbey’.

“Where’s MY result?!”

If you’re missing, please let me know – it will be due to one of two things: a) the editor’s incompetence, or b) you haven’t selected ‘Knaresborough Striders’ as your club in your parkrun profile – help on that can be found here: update running club.
