Thank you all so much for coming, 40 ran for Chiltern, 18 for Good Shepherd, 2 for Vineyard Sutton, 8 for Holy Trinity Church Wallington, 5 for Emmanuel, 5 for St Patrick’s Tigers, and 8 for Selsdon Baptist – 92 runners in total! Oh, and two dogs.
The conditions underfoot varied – with the half tarmac, half grass course – decent amount of mud – at least two falls, but no injuries as far as I know. I for one do love charging through the puddles, so apologies if you were standing to one side of me (Steve and Dave T – I know I got you) – but be warned I am a repeat offender.
In all 466 people ran Nonsuch parkrun that day, and we were spread from position 4 to position 465! We took them to their fourth highest ever attendance. Thanks to Jason for all his hard work in organising.
Scores, after handicap, for those who like such things, as follows;
Chiltern 1500 (38)
Good Shepherd 565 (18)
Christ Church New Malden 448 (6)
St Patrick’s Tigers 391(5)
Emmanuel Church 273 (5)
Selsdon Baptist 263 (8)
Holy Trinity Wallington 222 (8)
Vineyard Sutton 69 (2)
I note St Patrick’s scored the highest points as an average per individual runner in all 3 categories (Men/Women/Juniors) and Good Shepherd accumulated the most junior points. Number of runners is in brackets – Chiltern still ‘mobbing’ – we may need to look at scoring again to open things up a bit.
