Barrie Roberts: The 37th Cannon Hill Park Run took place earlier on Saturday in damp, warm and humid conditions with a light sprinkling of rain towards the end. Nine BvHers participated in this increasingly popular weekly event.
It was as usual well organised with a good supply of marshalls including our very own Lesley Byrne and Sharon Weldon whose support and encouragement was very welcome. The Results from BvHers was as follows:-
|47||Fiona Jane HEATH-BROWN||21:39||SW25-29||68.36%||F||4|
|82||Barrie Moelwyn Antony ROBERTS||24:39:00||VM65-69||69.98%||M||73|
|145||Kathleen Elizabeth ROBERTS||36:10:00||VW60-64||55.81%||F||46|
It was slightly slippery underfoot due to wet leaves, mud and the occasional puddle; it was never therefore going to be a day of fast times. Having said that everyone successfully completed the 5k distance and there were clearly some sound steady performances.
Gary Blackman in his first Park Run and ‘coming back from injury’, crossed the finishing line in the impressive time of 17:32 . Not too far behind was Fiona Heath-Brown in 21:39 A New PB. Greame Beavers also ran a new PB.
The Park Runs have the advantage of being local and are free to enter. And you can bring your family and friends along and enjoy a post-race visit to the local cafe which is adjacent to the Finish. What more could you possibly want?!
