Newcastle parkrun: 24/Sept/11: Results

Congratulations go out to Graham King who completed his 50th parkrun on Saturday morning in a time of 20:06. Graham was also 1st in his age category as he goes from strength to strength. For completing 50 parkruns, Graham will be awarded the exclusive 50 Club T-shirt to wear with pride. Well done Graham.

Our highest finisher this week was Dave Appleby who crossed the line in 8th position in a time of 17:57 and an age grading of 80.87%

Huge congratulations also go to Alan Wallace & Megan Brette for recording new PB’s. Alan notched up a hattrick of consecutive PB’s at Newcastle parkrun beating his previous time by a massive 21 seconds. Good work Alan

Megan recorded a brand new PB of 27:58, which, compared to her time of just 4 weeks ago (29:57) means Megan has knocked off an incredible 1:59 off her previous 5k time. The training at Tyne Bridge Harriers is certainly paying off. Well done Megan, fantastic stuff.

Well done to ALL TBH Athletes who took part in the parkrun event on Saturday representing the club.
