Lloyd Inter-Church Mob Match (May 2018)

Thank you all so much for coming, 23 ran for Chiltern, 10 for Good Shepherd, 13 for St Patrick’s, 5 for Holy Trinity Church Wallington, 14 for Emmanuel, 10 for Croydon Vineyard, 2 for New Life Christian Centre, 1 for the International Church of Christ, 1 for the Salvation Army, and 18 for Selsdon Baptist 97 – runners in total.

Sue Springate of St Patrick’s Tigers was accompanied on the first lap by Bertie, her dog – Bertie was sporting a jaunty red, white and blue neckerchief. Sorry Bertie, you only did one lap – so we can’t score you!

There was another little event going on the same day, but it was later than us, so hopefully we didn’t mess up the Royal Wedding arrangements to much.

However there is a little problem – GDPR the General Data Protection Regulations now in force, and this means anyone who is not registered to their club we can score – but I cannot name, unless you have signed a waiver (sent to all Club Captain’s), and so if your name is not here, you know why! About 20 people are missing in this way.
In all 309 people ran Lloyd parkrun that day, and we were spread from position 2 to position 303! That’s their 3rd biggest turn out ever, and we were involved in the 2 bigger ones!

Also we got a mention from them in their news; http://www.parkrun.org.uk/lloyd/news/2018/05/19/church-runners-ahoy-lloyd-parkrun-report-407-by-debra-bourne/


The churchrunner Handicap Cup;

Chiltern Church Runners– 1st place 1062
Emmanuel – 2nd place 999
Selsdon Baptist Church Runners– 3rd place 773
Good Shepherd – 4th 595
St Patrick’s – 5th 432
Croydon Vineyard – 6th 407
Holy Trinity Wallington – 7th 284
New Life Church Croydon – 8th 192
International Church of Christ – 9th 164
Salvation Army – 10th 80

Well done to Chiltern – the handicaps shift again for the next one, and remember up to 3 volunteers can now score for your team!

Also as special mention for Rupert Quested far left is to receive the achievement medal as with this run he has now broken in to to the top 500 for the most parkruns (there are 4.6 million registered parkrunners worldwide). He is now ranked 500th in the list of who have run the most – he has done 339 parkrun’s.


For the sake of equity I should mention both Micky Wheeler and Andy Crossley both of Selsdon Baptist Church Runners are in the same exclusive club, though in their case both in the top 300.
