Sunderland parkrun, Silksworth, Saturday, November 6, 2010

George Nicholson

First places from Will Horsley and Keri Pearson made it a memorable day on Saturday at Silksworth.

Eight striders turned out to make us the first club to record 200 ‘runs’. We do need another 12 new runners to register and run however to put us in our rightful first club place ( hint, hint ! )

Alan and Denise Smith both recorded PBs – good to see Alan returning to fitness after IT band problems, and also to see Jacquie Robson on her first outing after a prolonged injury.

Alister had another strong run finishing in 21:43, his second fastest, and I managed to hold off Alan ( just, by 1 second ) on the run in to the finish up Puke Hill. Jan Young had a relaxed run out and took it nice n steady, saving her energy for the Three Tops fell race the following day.

But pride of place(s) has to go to Keri and Will. Keri was 1st Lady home in a time of 21:15 and Will led from the start to record a time of 17:26 and win the race by over half a minute … excellent.
