Unbelievable. There’s no other word for it. The weather that greeted Newcastle parkrunners on Saturday was unbelievable. It was sunny, warm and a lot like a what a typical summer’s day should be like. Whatever next I ask.
11 members finished the 5k run, with David Appleby first finisher for the club in a time of 18m 44s.
But despite Dave being the leading runner, it was the female contingent that finished with the bragging rights, as 3 of the ladies recorded PB’s. First up was Megan Parkin, who reduced her PB by 36 seconds (23:00 to 22:24) in a space of a week. Next up was Victoria Waugh, who’s run of 23:43 was an incredible 58 seconds quicker than her previous best. Finally, having made her debut the week earlier, Alison Smith knocked off 28 seconds from her time. Congratulations to all 3 ladies
