Parkruns

Oliver Pritchard won at Horsham in 17.38,  Ian Barrett finished 3rd at Torbay in 17.57 and David Lattimore popped up at Stonehouse.  For two parkruns immediately before Christmas our fanatical four  (Luke and Ollie Campbell and Jacob and Isaac McAdam) ran together, firstly at Swindon with a Nativity theme and then two days later at Chippenham but by New Year their competitive urges were restored with Jacob and Ollie finishing 4th and 5th at Swindon.  David Moss, dad Alan McAdam and buggy pushing Simon Campbell all finished in under 26 minutes with Gordon Jones and Lisa Carpenter less than a minute behind and a returning Rachel Jones scraping through in just under 29 minutes.
