Weekend Recap: And We’re Back in WRRL Business…


Somehow it is April and the WRRL has kicked off again. It was only January last week wasn’t it? When did THAT happen?

Massey Ferguson Tractor 10k

Despite a week of manky weather the Easter Bunny was kind to the K&D Massive on Sunday 1st April. Easter and April Fools Day. But K&D were in no mood for joking around as winter training was put behind our athletes with a slew of PB’s and great season openers.  

Chris Sharp took a comfortable second place overall while Rosie Marsh PB’d and took home the senior women’s trophy.

Emma Lowe’s other half provided a  whole load of fantastic photo’s that can be found here:

Brueton parkrun:

In cold, wet, miserable conditions Brueton parkrun was managed by the Youth on Saturday. Who took a break from Snap-tatting and using the Twitters to put on an excellent event. Congrats to the young whipper snappers who braved ‘mingin’ conditions. 

Gareth Wainwright rolled back his years to clock 17:07 – just being beaten by one of those young-types. Behind him Darren John tried to nip in under 18… misjudging it ever so slightly to run 18:00. D’oh.  Rob Michaelson-Yeates cruised round in 18:58. 

For the women Felicity Sharp continued her rapid return to form taking home First Lady in 22:28 while only Siobhan Cotter and Louise Bell battled it out, finally separated by only 4 seconds. They ran 24:10 and 24:14 respectively. 

Gorelston Cliffs

Great Yarmouth played host to Steve McDonald who clocked 22:24 in the picturesque Goreleston Cliffs setting.

Newbury parkrun

Newbury for Gary Welsh on Saturday. He ran 22:42.

Huddersfield parkrun

Greg Turner found himself up in t’north and ran a solid 20:33 at the home of the Terriers.

Dungloe parkrun
