Wimbledon Common parkrun

Race Date: Saturday, 01/04/2017
Race Distance: 5 Km

Congratulations to Julia for being the Run Director for the first time and not being phased by the hoax call about the hornets' nest (well it was 1st April).Numbers were boosted by a few refugees from Fulham Palace, whose parkrun had to be cancelled because of preparations for the Boat Race. No mud today, and good temperature for running combined to produce many PBs and SBs. The first 5 finishers overall all achieved PBs! It was great to watch Ben Toomer (1st overall and first time under 16mins) and Christopher Cull (PB of 21.11 aged 9) expressing their mutual appreciation of the other's efforts. Well done to Charles H-S on his 400th run, shared with Nicola - thanks to them for the proseco and cake - and to Steve on his 200th, achieved after a gap of a few weeks
