Pocket parkrun #28: Run Report

🔀 from Pocket parkrun

On the last parkrun before Christmas, a group of Santas (and a few Elves) descended on Pocket park for the 28th Pocket parkrun. There were lots of great photos that were taken by our marshals and they’ve all been added to an album on Facebook which you can find here.

142 runners, walkers and joggers took part and 13 ran new PBs despite the slippy paths. I really think we were on the edge this week but I didn’t see anyone with a muddy bum so I’d assume everyone made it round safely!

First finisher this weekend was Simon Mead in a new PB of 17:44, he was also the person with the highest age-graded score with 80.55%. First female finisher was Hayley Read in another new PB of 20:37.

The Weekly Links Roundup

That’s it from me this week, as always if you’d like to volunteer at next weekend’s event, you can email pockethelpers@parkrun.com or get in touch on Facebook. As Joanne said in the briefing, it’d be a great help to the volunteer coordinator if we were able to fill up the future roster a few days before each event so please get in touch if you are available for the 29th of December or the 1st of January.

Have a great Christmas,
