🔀 from Pocket parkrun

Today, 237 ran, walked and jogged round Pocket parkrun. We had an unusually large group of first timers this morning - 42 in fact, 22 of whom were running a parkrun for the first time. Among those who had run Pocket pefore, there were 52 PBs today. We also had a number of tourists with us from Kings Lynn, Milton Keynes, St Albans and Cambridge. Perhaps the loudest tourist we’ve ever had, Sharon Threlfall100_club_mini25_club_mini, an RD at Westmill parkrun, celebrated an arbitry 150th parkrun with us this weekend. #BlameStephen This week, our first two finishers forgot thier barcodes! So our first finisher with a barcode was Callum Nicholson50_club_mini who finished in a time of 18:40. Our first female finisher was Hayley Read in a time of 20:25. The person with the highest age grade this weekend was first timer Fiona Downie with 80.09% and a time of 22:01.
