Weekend Recap: Mo Fun as parkrun Goes Supersonic


Mo Run:

Three K&D’s enjoyed an end of season knees up at Mo Run. Donning silly ‘tashes for a 10k round Sutton park. Farmer Phil, Rob Stewart and Kate Marsh got to run round in the wake of Jodie Stimpson (Commonwealth Games Gold in Triathlon) who rocked up unannounced for a legshaker.

Phil Lindsay – 44:54
Rob Stewart- 51:32
Kate Marsh – 51:49

Brueton parkrun:

A historically fast parkrun at Brueton as Doug Musson (Helix Sports Employee/Notts AC) rocked up and scorched round in an astonishing 14:53. Doug is a top-10 UK steeplechasher/Top 30 ranked 5000m runner. A bit quick in other words. 

Gareth Wainwright took it in good humour and put up a brave fight behind Musson in 17:36 finishing 2nd overall. Ricky Stewart broke 18 in a great new PB running 17:58 to join the K&D sub-18 club.
