Clermont Waterfront parkrun Event number 322 11th January 2020

The cool winter weather that we have had lately did not seem to hold up for this weekend’s event. Temperatures were hot and humid, but that didn’t stop participants from coming in for record times and fantastic results. Out of the 167 participants, 19 completed the 3.1 mile course in a new personal record time. We also had an impressive 26 first timers.

Congratulations to Jill Swidler, who completed her 25th parkrun today. She started coming to parkrun in November of 2018, and has participated regularly ever since. Not only did she reach an impressive milestone this weekend, but she also dropped her second fastest time ever. This was the only milestone for this weekend, but many other runners are extremely close to reaching some. Also, congratulations to the multiple runners who reached 10 parkruns. This is a great show of commitment and hopefully leads to many more events in the future.

In spite of the muggy conditions, there were some speedy times on both the men’s and women’s side. Jarrod Shoemaker won the event with a 15:58, just dipping under 16 and coming in only 10 seconds off his personal record. He also pulled Luiz Prestes to a new PB of 16:06. On the female side, Maryann Protz also ran her new Clermont parkrun PB to finish first with a time of 20:36.
