Morning all, this was my last week at Royal Mail so I'm hoping to have a few more Saturdays free to do Parkrun. This will depend on bookings that I have at the Escape Room that I will shortly be opening in Worthing. My first booking slot is at 10:00 so doubt I will run if I have an early booking. Today was my first Parkrun in 14 weeks, and was very happy to finish in around 22 minutes :D .

Regarding the league table, I see that this hasn't been updated since January, If tubeguru is no longer doing this I'd be happy to take over?
What do you all reckon?
Funny you should say this, I was working on something very similar a while back and work took over so never finished it. However, I hope to have some more time this week so I can have a look at it :D

Okay, I've just re-created the first two pages, by PB Time and by Age Grading in the identical format to Tubeguru.
There is a good chance that I've made one or two errors, so if anyone can spot any errors please let me know.
Might try and add some of the other pages, but it will be very time consuming!

The table has been updated with this week's times. There were seasons best times for Geofftech and Yours Truely...! :wink:
Geoff ran 26:09 at Ipswich, his best time since April 2017.
Soupie ran 20:39 at Worthing, my best time since December 2016. :D

I'm tempted, but that's just a bit too far for me.

Great morning at Marlow this morning for Andrew and Kev's 250th.

We had *two* cakes, one of which got woofed down!

Yep. Good to see everyone again. Congrats on 250 Kev/Andrew.

Got a new found appreciation for competitive walking after my physio said to hold off on running. My calves didn't thank me.

A busy Saturday with twelve of us running today.

Highlights of the day:
Andi claimed victory at Higgingson, Marlow, in the joint 250th celebration for Going Underground & Tractakid.
Geofftech ran a SB for the second week running, with a time of 25:40 at Reading.
Iain extended his consecutive run streak to 40.
jamesthegill ran sub 28 mins for only the 2nd time in 77 attempts.

The tables are now updated to include the 'Course Wars' tab, this now includes a Medals Table for all runs with 3 or more runners.
I've also included the 'Courses done by one runner' tab.

Please check for your own accuracy, especially that your age category is correct as this is very time consuming to check.

Enjoy.... :D :D :D

Just looking at where everyone ranks on the official "Most Events" list on the Parkrun site.
116 Andi
141 Going Underground
146 Tractakid
405 Geofftech
801 Iain
1439 Scrxisi *
1450 DrainBrain
1466 Das
2053 The Raven
2143 Nozzacook

* Scrxisi would be much higher but overseas runs don't count towards the total, so he is only credited with 47 runs instead of 60.

There's a global list at parkrun.com/results/mostevents

You need 30 venues to get on that list though :)

Nice work SD and well done Nozza for being inside the top 2500 from Penzance :shock:
