That make sit all the more impressive that, at the latest meeting, no fewer than foru AVRs achieved new PBs.

The quartet with new top times were: Chris Hill, (24:55); Suzy Eul-Brown, (27:30); Diane Newton, (32:25), first W65-69 and Mike Venn, (32:45), first M75-79. First to finish in his first Parkrun was James Green in a time of 17:24.

Carol was pleased to finish sub-23 in 22:58 (78per cent age grade) and first W55-59. David Cooke contested his first proper 400m for 10 years at the Yeovil Olympiads Open, recording 71.20s (V60).
