Roundshaw Inter-Church Mob Match (Jul 2018)

Thank you all so much for coming, 43 ran for Chiltern, 7 for Good Shepherd, 2 for Tandridge Deanery, 6 for Holy Trinity Church Wallington, 3 for Emmanuel, 10 for St Patrick’s Tigers, 4 for Christ Church Purley, 9 for Croydon Vineyard, 6 for Springfield, 6 for the Salvation Army, 2 for Sutton Christian Centre and 5 for Selsdon Baptist – 103 runners in total!


It was the event’s 9th Anniversary, and we got the event’s 4th biggest attendance.

Thanks to Mark Constantinou & Michael Ogunnaike who between them kept score, and to all the parkrun volunteers – some of whom came from our Churches. In all 255 people ran Roundshaw parkrun that day, and we were spread from position 1 to position 255 ! It was awesome to see so many of our runners there.

Scores, after handicap, though obviously it’s mainly for fun;

Chiltern Church 1561

St Patrick’s 718

Springfield Church 675

Salvation Army 644

Christ Church Purley 632

Croydon Vineyard 586

Within the churches;

First women (first column) and girls home

1 Massah Cooper HTW

2 Rowena Francis CCP

3 Un club registered runner CCR

1 Megan Thomas CCR

2 Zoe Johnstone CCR

3 Marie Gray CCR

So a clean sweep for the CCR girls then! To be fair no other Church brought any junior girls along!


Massah Cooper who was first lady home for the Churches – a recent addition to the HTW team.

I should explain re GDPR – which now means if you have neither registered to your Church club or sent me a GDPR waiver so we can name you then we can still score you – but no mention in the report or individual results.

First men (first column) and boys home

1 Tom Higgs St Pats

2 Kevin Lewis GS

3 Un club registered runner SA

1 Adam Hudson GS

2 Jared Thompson CV

3 Ian Cotton St Pats

I note the tables below are only from those I can name.



Not an exhaustive list but course Pb’s for; Thomas Speed, Joshua Elston-Smith, David O’Domhnaill, Gary Harrison, Jared Thompson, Massah Cooper, Yvonne Harrison, Matthew Gray, & Beverley Brigden.

Great effort folks.

Kudos to Croydon Vineyard with 50% of their runners who had run Roundshaw before achieving a PB!
