Once again, plenty of parkrun action took place this weekend with Emma S, Mick & Steve W, and Rosie Wigg turning out at the Nostell and Pontefract venues. Most notable performances came from Rose and Steve. Rose managed a venue PB at Nostell and Steve an age group win at Pontefract. In winning his age, Steve also clocked a coming-out-of-hibernation time approaching the 18 minute slot.
Having loosened her legs with a relatively steady-effort parkrun, Emma S put her proper race-face on for the Snake Lane 10 on Sunday. This 10 mile event has a reputation for being quite quick but strong, bitingly cold winds on the day did not help the hundreds who turned out. In spite of the conditions Emma ran well with a top half of age group finish. Pleasingly, she also broke the 1 hr 30 minute mark for the first time in four attempts at this race. It's a pity the winds were so strong as her form may have otherwise netted a tough-to-beat PB.
