Submitted by Clermont Waterfront parkrun
Clermont parkrunners started off the month of December the only way a
runner would: with a 5k. The holiday season is always a favorite month
for runners, joggers, and walkers in Florida. Temperatures are ideal,
spirits are high, and there are lots of Christmas cookies to work up an
appetite for! This week 101 people ran, jogged and walked the course, of
whom 13 were first timers and 17 recorded new Personal Bests.
Representatives of 9 different clubs took part.
Junior Ryan Benn led the overall male finishers this weekend with a new
parkrun PB of 19:28. Rick Light and Cooper Krug finished second and
third with times of 19:49 and 20:27, respectively.
Another junior, Alexis Hill, also led the female podium with a time of
23:39. She was followed by her sister Mackenzie Hill in 24:14. Third
place was Lori Walters in 26:03.
