MK Parkrun – 5k Club Championships
On Saturday 18 July, Leighton Buzzard Athletic Club held their annual 5k Club Championship race. This year it was decided that we would take advantage of one of the excellent local Parkruns (www.parkrun.org.uk) to host the race and so it was hoped quite a few members of the club would come to Willen Lake in Milton Keynes to take part.
And what a turn out it was! With 34 club members taking part, some as young as 10 and others 50 or 60 years their senior, it really does show that running can be for everyone.
The club had 6 runners who had never run the Milton Keynes parkrun before and 7 Personal Bests for the course including Georgina Haynes, Caroline Mann, Isobel Haynes, Kate Johnson, Oliver Inchley, Scott Towell, David Killick and Jordan Clay. Jordan also managed to pip second place on the line to win the race on the day.
The 5k Club Champion for the men was Jordan Clay, joined in the top 10 by Benjamin Corfield, Andy Inchley, Pete Mackrell, Sam Nicholas, Elliot Hind and Adam Haylock.
Amy Inchley managed to hold off a strong challenge from Johanna Sharples to take the win for ladies. Along with Amy and Jo, Katie Haylock also finished in the top 10 with a solid run.
Well done to everybody who took part and for those first timers, we hope to see you at another local Parkrun course soon!
