Parkruns and our chance to get involved in Colwick Parkrun 28th September
Parkruns seem to be as much a part of LERC than running does itself.
With 3 lerc runners going to Darley park to use their grassy off road undulating course to prepare or the forthcoming cross country season, Shaun Burton, current club captain leading the trio home in 29th place with a course best of 24m 07s, ladies captain Rachel Argent in 50th place, 9th lady on her Darley park debut in 26m 21s and Damian Cowlishaw 52nd, also on his Darley park debut in 26m 32s. A great more undulating course indeed!
Whilst John Hay proferably using his new found love of cycling and running was the sole lerc runner at Forest rec parkrun coming in 12th place at 21m 59s.
Whilst at Colwick parkrun, proberbly lerc'c home ground at the moment, just two lerc runners were present, with Rob Jackson being 1st lercer home in 25th in 22m 04s follwed by Martin Tilling who was on pacing duty coming in 96th in 29m 27s.
The biggest turnout was at the Rushcliffe parkrun, probably soon to be lerc's home ground, with 6 runners in attendance taking 1st,2nd,3rd,8th,9th and 90th placings!
Adam White 1st in 16m 49s
Gav Kennedy on his Debut 2nd in 17m 24s
Paul Allcock also on his debut 3rd in 17m 27s
Dave Boot 8th in 18m 45s
Rob Allen 9th in 19m 19s
Sarah Kuehne 90th
So does this make a statement for LERC and parkruns, it sure does, but who is LERC's best parkrunner!
With new boy Adam White having 8 parkruns 3 1st, 3 2nd's and 1 3rd place
Paddy Fitzgerald 22 parkruns also with 3 1st's at different parkruns, 2 2nd's
Dean Hardman 7 parkruns with 4 1st's and 1 2nd
Ian Chant 16 parkruns 1 1st, 2nd's 4 3rd's
This debate to be continued ............
