The race raised much needed funds for Umborne Village Hall and as well as 34 AVR’s running another dozen were in supportive roles so congratulations to Rick and Eleanor Wood and everyone else involved in staging the event.

Whilst working in London, Chris Hill travelled to Wimbledon common (yes there were some Wombles) on Wednesday to take part in the Runthroughs chase the sun series of 10k races. Despite the heat he ran a PB of 51:11 finishing 81st out of a field of 250 to be third in his age group.

On Saturday, while working in Birmingham at the British Athletics Championships, Carol Austin took part in Perry Hall parkrun, a beautiful park opposite the Alexander Stadium. She finished second woman in 23:12 in her 151st Parkrun.

With the holiday season in full swing it is worth remembering that there are Parkruns all over the world. Carol has now completed 27 different Parkruns in eight different countries.
