Course bests a plenty at the Park Run!

With weather like we had this weekend, Killerton Park seemed like the idyllic destination for some of our Park Running Harriers.
Stalwart Park Run devotee, Adam Miller, has now taken part in around 40 Park Runs and continually places in the top 3 finishers. Again on this occasion he crossed the line of the 5k multi-terrain course in 3rd position overall in a time of 17.51. This is also Adam's best clocking on the course, showing that he is in great shape for the London marathon in 3 week's time.

A personal course best was also achieved by veteran athlete Roger Rowe. Perhaps the good weather and firm ground helped with the faster times, but Roger shaved 8 seconds off his previous best for the course to run 21.20 and in so doing he also improved upon his own MV65 record for the Killerton course.

As the summer approaches what better way to sharpen up the legs than by enjoying a 5k timed run in the glorious Devonshire countryside, with the added bonus that it's totally free! To have a go yourself go to the Park Run website, create a profile, print off your barcode and get running! http://www.parkrun.org.uk/
