It’s been a busy old weekend with races all over the place, but nevertheless, Arena 80 were still represented at 6 different parkruns on Saturday!
Over at Hove Park, Arena provided 11 of the 300 runners who took part. Andy Paterson was the first Arena home in 19:29, whilst Sue Brumwell was the first Arena lady home in 22:42.
16 club members took part in the Preston Park parkrun and first chap and lady home were both Arenas, recording course PBs in the process! Jim Risdale stormed home in 17:26, (now just two runs from the magical 250!), soon followed by Helena Rooney in 20:04. There were also a number of good performances from runners in the field, particularly Lorraine Hale who was just two seconds away from her PB! Next time!
Hove Prom parkrun saw the largest number (17) of Arena runners, where first runner home for the club was Luke Carter in 19:05. Helen Moss was the first Arena lady home in 20:27 and there were some noticeable course PBs too! with Jo Peckham and Kate Rowinska achieving 20:58 and 22:48 respectively. For the chaps, course PBs for Jim Callender (19:42), Max Brambani (21:00) and Joel Epstein 21:27!
