Weekend parkrun round up

With the return of two parkrun events following last week’s cancellations, the opportunity for Arena runners to spread their wings far and wide was taken up this week with 37 runners taking part at 5 different parkruns.

Brighton (Hove Park) saw the highest number of runners with 16 members tackling the course, between them amassing a total of 2,844 parkruns! Next saw Preston Park hosting 10 of our runners, whilst Worthing saw the debut of Michele Saunders with a very respectable 30:25 along the seafront, along with another 3 members of our club.

Sole running representative over at Bevendean Down, Caroline Wood powered home as first lady (3rd overall), after rubbing shoulders with parkrun founder, Paul Sinton-Hewitt out on the course.

If it was PBs you were after, Hove Prom was the place to be. Chris Keene was the highest place Arena coming in 15th with a PB of 20:22; it seems there may have been a little bit of internal club competition as Helena Rooney and John Thompson came over the line in 19th and 20th respectively, both sharing the time of 20:50, a PB for John!

Well done to everyone who took part this weekend – don’t forget you can check out all of the club records here
