Saturday 29th October – Park Run Leeds 5km

Report from OAC’s Tom Paget:

I did the Leeds Park Run this morning, complete with two children in a double-pushchair.

I was pleased to knock over one and a half minutes off my previous ‘5km double-pushchair pb’, finishing 43rd in a time of 21.18.

Unfortunately in the mad rush to get myself and two children to Leeds for 9am I forgot my barcode, so I’m down on the results as “Unknown Runner”. Nevermind.

The race was won by Matthew Akpan (Staffordshire Moorlands A.C.) in 17.43 and the first lady in eighteenth position was Jocelyn Payne (Leeds University Union Cross Country Club) in 19.25.

Also fort OAC, Neil Reed finished 54th (21.48) and Debra Brown 151st (26.59).

Results from parkrun.

  1. We, the public, demand to see a pic of this double-pushchair run. I reckon it should be an Olympic event.

  2. Richard,

    I don’t have a picture unfortunately. However, if you would like to borrow my 2 children for a Saturday morning to try and beat my time, you are more than welcome.
