parkrun summary 17 June 2023

Dennis Holmes reports:


17 MACS partook at 10 different venues across 4 counties of England this Saturday.

Sarah Witham completing her 100th parkrun chose where it all began, Bushy Park, London to complete this milestone and ran a great time of 22.37 with Rob Scriven just ahead in 21.47.

As all other MACS stayed local in Derbyshire, Nottinghamshire or Yorkshire, our London bound couple were also MAC tourists of the week.

Starting off with Gods own county, Nottinghamshire, Luke Beresford returned to his favourite hunting ground for first finisher, Bestwood Village parkrun and maintained his form with 18.36 being good enough today. In the city at Wollaton Hall,

Sarah Walton continued her comeback with 38.30 whilst up in the North of the County

Lisa Walton completed Mansfield parkrun in 31.18 for 62nd place.

Just a bit further North but over the border in Yorkshire, Roy Austin ran a cracking 24.13 (19th) at the hilly Sheffield Castle parkrun followed in by Chris Rouse in 27.03 (35th).


Not so far East Jay Bird was showing a clean pair of heels to Dennis Holmes at Sandall Park, Doncaster where Jay finished in 64th place and 24.37, Dennis trailing in some 4 minutes and 60 places back. Moving home to Derbyshire, part-time parkrunner Chis Gillott was sole MAC at Poolsbrook parkrun where he recorded a PB of 22.20 for 19th position.

Also running solo for MAC at Pavilion Gardens, Buxton, Andrew Watson recorded a great time of 21.59 for 23rd place. Down in the South West of the County at Ashbourne Recreation Ground parkrun our 2 serious parkrunners Rob Cutis and Rebecca Curtis-Hall recorded 24.28 & 27.06 for 46th and 78th positions.

Finally at the MAC home run, Monsal Trail Greg and Meg recorded 20.11 & 21.57 for 17th & 34th positions with Paul Clark 43rd in 22.36 and last but not least of the MAC quartet Nicky Dick in 26.31 and 123rd place.
Whilst compiling my results for this little report, I noted that Totley AC had 51 finishers at Monsal Trail parkrun today!! That’s quite a flash mob!
