Stonehaven parkrun

Race Date: Saturday, 30/06/2018
Race Distance: 5 Km

3 and a bit laps of a course in scenic Mineralwell Park Stonehaven (conveniently situated close to the coast and the open air lido for a dip afterwards). Only 66 runners (swollen from normal by the weekend's events which included a sportif, a beer festival and the half marathon). On mixed gravel and grass terrain and undulating, with a bit of a killer incline towards the end of each lap. Neil wasn't 'saving' himself for the half marathon the following day and led for large parts but was pipped by a few seconds at the death (he has however taken the age group record here for the time being). The Windmilers easily got team domination though ;-)
