Highbury Fields –
report from Mick Jeffrey
I ran this Parkrun again on Saturday a year or so after the first time I ran it. We were in London taking Chris to see Kings College and then to stay with Emily and her boyfriend. It is less than a mile from their flat. It is a modest sized race, sorry time trial, round a small park with an uphill finish to its 5 lap course. 91 lined up at the start and the conditions were perfect. Sadly my fitness was less perfect and I struggled for the first 2 laps and hung on for the remaining 3. I finished 39/91, last year 12/67. My time was 23.21 this year, and 20.59 last. It was my quickest 5k time this year, it was my slowest 5k time ever. But thank the lord for age grading. I was 5th overall. The race was won by Rob Walker in 17.56 and the first lady was Mary Mulryan in 23.23.
The first male to finish was Mark BRYANT (M) (Leeds City AC) in a time of 17:13. The first lady completing the course was Emma ROBINSON (Harrogate Harriers AC) in a time of 20:59. For Otley AC Christian Hosker
came in 31st in 21.17
