Notts 10/Druridge Bay Parkrun/Pollok Parkrun/Ellenbrook Fields Parkrun/Inverness Parkrun/Gateshead Parkrun/Dunfermline Parkrun/Windy Gyle Fell Race

On Friday 16th June Dan LENG was in action at the Notts 10 where he flew round to finish 22nd of the 300 runners in a brilliant 58.28!

A decent number of Harriers took part in the Druridge Bay Parkrun on a very hot Saturday 17th June. Richard JOHNSON was 1st finisher for the 3rd time in the events history in a very good 18.02, a course best for him. Carole PAGE ensured it was another double for the club as she bolted up in the female race. Not only did she win, she ran a course personal best of 20.58 and amazingly achieved the best WAVA score in the events history! The WAVA score allows you to compare your personal performance against other people’s performances even though they might be a different age and a different sex to you – the higher the score the better the performance. Since the event started in August 2014 nearly 4500 different runners have taken part. Carols WAVA score is a huge 87.52%, the best of the lot!
