Leverington Three Counties Running Club's Morgan Harrison 4th and 1st in age category at King's Lynn Parkrun to defy Storm Dennis
Three Counties Running Club members have had to deal with Storm Ciara last week and now Storm Dennis.
The Stamford 30k and Thetford 10k trail race were both called off due to the imminent risk of Storm Dennis sweeping the country.
So on the regular Saturday Parkrun, King's Lynn saw nine TCRC members among the 366-runner field. The weather didn’t hampen members with some of them getting some fantastic PB’s and some finishing very high in the field.
Finishing in 4th place overall and 1st in age in the 15-17 category was Morgan Harrison with a fantastic time of 18:05. Matthew Knott was next to finish in 28th position also in a great time of 21:26 followed by Jonathan Quail, who is still getting back to fitness after injury with a CPB of 23:13. Sarah Melton-Whitelam was the first female club finisher and 2nd in age in a great time of 24:23 followed by Donna Johnson with a great PB of 26:28 and Victoria May, a PB of 26:50. Matt Hunter crossed the line with Victoria in 26:50, Steve Whitelam 29:06 and a great run from Laura Vincent, who is struggling with injury, 33:24CPB.
Soham Village College parkrun had a small field of 116 runners on three and a bit laps around the college campus on a mixture of tarmac paths and grass. Colin Apps has a fantastic run in his Parkrun debut at Soham finishing in 10th place overall, 1st in his age category and a great CPB of 24:17.
Fulbourn Hospital parkrun had a slightly bigger field of 143 runners in the grounds of Fulbourn hospital. Its four laps are run mostly on grass and a short tarmac pathway at the beginning and finish of each lap and a further stretch half way round. Steve Rhodes finished in a great time of 23:10 CPB and 23rd overall and wife Sandra also in a great CPB of 33:18.
Next weekend, if the weather is kind will see the rescheduled Stamford 30k.
