Blanket cloud obscured the sun keeping temperatures lower than usual for Saturday morning’s parkrun. Many runners seized the opportunity of the amenable conditions to record personal best times. In fact almost 40% of the field (23 runners in total) set new personal best times. The full list of record breakers can be viewed on the Batemans Bay parkrun facebook page and on our results page but performances from some of our regular parkrunners deserve special mention. Anthony Miles set his 10th PB in his 24 run history running 21:34. Megan Costello ducked under 26 minutes for the first time (25:58) to the delight of the assembled family members and Jill Brown shaved an impressive 33 seconds off her previous best finishing in 28:27. Megan Usher (35:28) and Tracy Denning (32:32) likewise demonstrated how regular attendance can reap rewards as both ladies have now slashed 8 minutes off their maiden parkrun times. Finally, Tracy Galvin having made headlines last week for achieving a PB, backed up that performance by setting her new target of 29:21.
