Submitted by Bill Post

Summer is here as high humidity but luckily cloudy skies greeted our 92 participants who ran, jogged and walked the 3.1-mile course along the beautiful shore of Lake Minneola.  This week we had 17 first timers and 20 runners recorded new Personal Bests. Representatives of 8 different clubs took part and as usual, we had a good number of visitors from the U.K. along with runners from St Petersburg, Russia join us this week!The first male to finish was a first-time visitor, Alex Penfold, representing the Croydon Harriers club with a very impressive time of 17:38. Kevin Grogan one of our regular top runners took second with another great time of 18:01 followed in the third position by Clermont regular, Scott Murphy who set a new PB with a time of 18:13.

On the ladies side, our Clermont Junior runners were well represented as they took the top 3 spots. Alexis Hill was the first female to cross the line with a nice time of 22:14, while Reagan Parks was second at 22:26 and Mackenzie Hill rounded out the top three at 22:56. Great job today by all of our participants!

We received some very nice comments from one of our visitors this past week – “I would just like to say a huge thanks for a great parkrun event last Saturday. Your event really embraces everything parkrun should be and you should be very proud of the event you have.”  Don’t miss out on this great free event !
