Cannon Hill Park Run – 13th Nov 2010

Lesley Pymm reports: There was a small turnout from BvH, although quite a large field altogether. This event is certainly gaining in popularity as word spreads about it. There were 94 finishers this week.

We were a bit low on marshals and one or two runners who were new to the event went a bit wrong. Many thanks to those who did volunteer. It is a reminder of how important it is to put something back into the parkrun – I will take my turn!

The two BvH runners were Daniel Wilson who did it in 18.45 (a new PB on the course) – well done Daniel. I also ran and just missed my PB. It was a bit unfortunate that a woman started feeding the pigeons just as I ran past her and they all flocked across the path, crashing into me. It did phase me a bit and I had to protect my head from them. I just missed my PB, so I know that I can improve on it – it is just a matter of working hard and I’ll get there.

This remains a great innovation and such support to the running community.

Full results.

  1. Well done Lesley & Danny! I really enjoy Parkrun too and usually run Norwich or Brueton …..I volunteered a few weeks back for the first time and I enjoyed it (almost) as much as running it. It was nice to be involved and to see the effort that goes into Parkrun each week from the other volunteers and directors. I also enjoyed being able to cheer people on and getting to know some of the other Parkrunners so it’s definitely worth doing this once in a while – you also get 100 points towards your score the 1st three times you volunteer!!
