No run for me yesterday, but twelve of us ran, including five runners at Clapham Common.

This weeks highlights
Andi was the bridesmaid at South Oxhey, the second time that he has been a runner-up.
Iain claimed a PB of 32nd Place also at South Oxhey.
MatthewCook18 ended a negative run of -14 with an outing at Penrose.
Several SB's to mention
Drain Brain 29:34 and A2 37:45 both at Clapham Common
The Raven 36:07 at Upton House

Medals changed hands at South Oxhey, Andi taking Gold from Tractakid, The Raven slips into Bronze and Going Underground is out of the medals.
At Clapham Common Xcooler123 claims Gold, Geofftech claims Silver (even though he ran at Southsea) and DrainBrain gets the Bronze.
Although I didn't run, thanks to Andi claiming a Gold from Tractakid, I move up one place in the table.

South Oxhey is a really small run - 48 runners yesterday. Just under three laps with the first half of the lap uphill and the rest downhill. Easier than I thought to get to, about ten minutes from Carpenders Park on the overground. A lovely friendly team too, with free hot drinks.

Echo that unfortunately I picked one week where an unusual fast runner decided that Saturday to do a Parkrun dam him. But it was a lovely Parkrun and one day I get that number 1

I could easily have been absent on Saturday thanks to a training course at 09:30. However I managed to volunteer to set up the signs and took the first marshal position, to ensure I was finished at 09:15 and able to get to work on time.

Yes wasn't sure if it was Woodhouse Moor or Richmond looks like a trip to Leeds is in order. Makes me wonder was number 6th now. Rapid progress for me up the table that top 100 is 1 Parkrun away ahead up the list gained 3 places today.

Use the sort function mention in GKR's post and you'll find out!

Banstead Woods for me too - what a delightful run only a few miles from home. I walked the steepest bit of hill but ran the bulk of it. Then back into Sutton for a 'spoons brekkie, only to find it closed for a refurb, so we headed to North Cheam where we had better luck.

Twelve runners again this week on a rather cold and wet morning.
It was horrible in Worthing so I decided to debunk to Clair. Amazingly Geofftech was also there but somehow we didn't see each other!

This weeks Highlights
Jamesthegill claims a SB and CB at Lancing Beach in 28:38
The Raven ran a SB at Upton House of 31:51
Geofftech, running at Clair, had a SB of 41:28
Crunchy Saviour managed a SB position of 19th at Rushmere

Medals Changing hands this week...
At Banstead Woods, Andi moves into Gold pushing Tractakid into Silver, with Geofftech dropping to Bronze. Scrixisi is now out of the medals.
At Henley-on-Thames, Tractakid takes Gold forcing Andi into Silver, Drain Brain drops to Bronze and Going Undergroubnd is out of the medals.
At Clair, Andi held onto Gold as Soup Dragon claims Silver, Drain Brain drops down to Bronze and Going Underground loses another medal.
