Report from Billy from the Bradford Park Run.
Myself, Sean O’Halloran & Sara Elliott went to Lister Park with Nicola Gill, Hebe Dolby, Rachael Allen and Lynne Lister (from the beginners group) for the Park Run on Saturday morning.
Meeting at the gates of the park there was a brief shower but this soon cleared and conditions were perfect for running.
As Sara was suffering from a chest infection she just ran with Lynne to encourage her on her first Park Run.The race was won by Sam Clegg (unattached – MV30) in 17:22 and the first lady was Kirsty Allen (Baildon Runners – FV40).I was first home for Otley AC in 94th place in a time of 25:11 (a new Park Run PB) followed by Sean (170th in 28:32), Nicola Gill (224th 30:57), Hebe Dolby (JF11-14 & 225th in 31:01), Rachael Allen (260th in 32:30) and Lynne Lister (284th in 33:44).
Congratulations to the beginners completing their first Park Runs.
The next Couch to 5k plan starts Tuesday 8th March.
Afterwards in was a quick dash to Darley to make in just in time for the club handicap!
