Well done to Mark Franks who achieved a new Parkrun PB of 20:51 at today's Oxford Parkrun at Cutteslowe Park.
Despite a general rustiness through lack of consistent distance training over recent months due to a focus on the club’s youth work, both Peter Wright and Stuart Craft managed respectable times of 20:33 and 22:13 with Peter coming second in his age category - way off their PB's but it's early days in the winter Parkrun season.
We are especially proud of our younger runners. In his first time at Parkrun, 12 year old Stan Cross achieved the excellent time of 26:46, Nine year old Emilija Molova was the second Under 10 girl to finish with an impressive time of 33:52. Francis McKenna whose fitness has shown a marked improvement through more regular attendances at training sessions, put in a solid performance to complete the course in a decent time of 38:20.
Across the City at the Harcourt Hill Parkrun Kevin Brackett achieved our second PB of the morning. Despite the course being slightly longer than usual due to construction work, Kevin knocked his time down to a very impressive 19:10.
Thanks to Angela, Peter and Stan's mum for helping out with transport.
