PUBLISHED: 10:14 03 June 2019
AVR members were out in good numbers for the Crewkerne 10k, writes Dave Mutter.
Eleanor Wood was the first AVR home, finishing as first F55, 41st overall in a time of 47:54.
Ron Seward was the next AVR over the line and he too bagged a category success finishing as first M60, 58th overall in a time of 50:32.
The other AVR members taking part were: Alan Morbey, 60th, 50:54; Margaret Pearce, 61st, 51:00; Cliff Marriott, 64th, 51:28; Mark Spraggs, 93rd, 54:57; Kevin Feeney, 97th, 55:09 and Sarah Shepley, 104th, 56:44.
Meanwhile, Lesley Adams and Carol Austin took part in Haga Parkrun in Stockholm for the third time and both achieved course PBs; perhaps, as they had run the previous two years event in what were very hot conditions.
This lovely, undulating, two-lap course, affords runners great views of the city around a park that houses the Royal Palace and graveyard, a butterfly house and a huge copper tent!
Lesley finished in 30:22 while Carol was the sixth woman home in 23:49.
The latest Seaton Parkrun was won by Ben Sloan of Woodford Green AC in 16:44 with Graham Sherwin of Egdon Heath Harriers taking second place in a time of 17:35.
AVRs Simon Dimmock was third in 17:44. Phoebe Clarke was the first female in 19:53 with Deborah English of Vegan Runners, the second female and Fiona Brady-Miller was third female in a time of 21:39.
AVRs John Mellodew completed his 100th Parkrun at the meeting - a tremendous achievement, while Joel Seward, Andy West and Thomasin Mincham all achieved PBs.
