It was a cold but fast morning at the Clermont waterfront parkrun with lots of people coming in for new personal bests. As usual, parkrunners were invited to meet for breakfast and coffee after the race atCheeser’s Palace, which was a welcomed treat after such a chilly early morning! This week 115 people ran, jogged and walked the course, of whom 13 were first timers and 20 recorded new Personal Bests. Representatives of 12 different clubs took part.
Overseas visitor Tim Price topped the podium this week with a time of 18:35. Following close behind was Kevin Grogan in 18:53, looks like Kevin is making another comeback! Third place was Ken Endrizzi rounded out the top three with a new PB of 19:41.
The first female this week was Sharon Gallant in a new personal record of 22:47. Congrats Sharon! Second place was junior Regan Parks in 23:36, and third place was Anne McFarlane in 24:29.
