Clermont Waterfront parkrun #325 February 1st, 2020

This weekend’s event totaled a lower than usual attendance because of heavy rain with chilly temperatures Saturday morning. Despite the adverse weather, 71 people still attended and achieved fantastic results. There were even 11 personal bests! An additional congratulations to the 9 participants who came out to the Clermont parkrun for the first time, we hope to see you next weekend with a bigger group and hopefully beautiful weather. Rain or shine, Clermont parkrunners are ready to tough it out!

Overseas visitor Simon Croft of Red Rose Road Runners managed to notch a first place finish and a new Clermont parkrun PB. With a time of 16:29, he also brought the following finishers (Nicholas Atkinson and Hicham Berriz) to near personal bests.

On the women’s side, Elizabeth Choi finished first in her first parkrun ever! Elizabeth is from winter garden runners club. It is great to see new local runners coming
out to participate. Congratulations to Sue Jewett on completing her 25th event. Sue was the only major milestone this weekend, but there are lots of people close to reaching one!
