Clermont Waterfront parkrun Event number 328 22nd February 2020

Perfect conditions and great spirit brought in lots of new personal bests and
strong results this weekend at the Clermont Waterfront parkrun. Participants faced a freshly added challenge on the course, though. The course is now shifted slightly to the side near the 1.5 mile mark, now including a very short (and very steep) hill. The hill has no real impact on times, but we can’t officially call the course "pancake flat" anymore! There were 23 personal bests and 21 first timers out of the 113 in attendance. We were also happy to have the Swim Like a Pro Triathlon group in attendance.

We were able to celebrate lots of first milestones this weekend. Caroline Whitehouse,
Tom Dyer, and Janine Campbell all completed their 25th event this weekend.
Congratulations to Tim Strickler on completing his 50th event this weekend.

Lee Rantala finished first overall in a new PB of 17:26. He also led 5 other men to sub
20 times. On the female side, new parkrunner Sara McClarty came in at 23:01 as the first female finisher in only her second event. Congratulations to Angela Harman, who was second female with a new PB. Angela has come out to multiple events each year since 2013. Her time of 23:31 this Saturday was her fastest since 2014! Junior runner Jocelyn Lee rounded out the top three females with a PB of 24:49.
