parkrunday 7th May 2022

There were 57 HPH Women and 39 HPH Men out parkrunning across 32 different venues this week. Three new venues were added to the HPH list – all international – with two in Australia and one in the Netherlands. Brenda Gannon added Redcliffe parkrun in Brisbane – although it sounds like it could be in England as the course is along Margate Beach just south of Scarborough. Cara Gates added Phillip Island off the Australian coast south of Melbourne. The couse is around the site of the first European garden in Victoria. It contains a working farm, cottages dating from the 1860s and a homestead dating from 1872, all fully restored and open to the public. The garden was originally created “for the future benefit of our fellow men be they Countrymen, Europeans or Savages”. Another attraction of the island is the Penguin Parade at Phillip Island Nature Park, in which little penguins come ashore in groups. Closer to home Jessica Wanless added Sonsbeek parkrun in Arnhem. The couse goes around the park containing the Netherlands Water Museum which is a modern and interactive museum that explains everything there is to know about fresh water. Highlights include a boating trip through the sewers; Waterlab: where children between the age of 6 and 12 are invited to do all sorts of experiments with water; and informative displays on the importance of Dutch dikes.

There were three first finishing Hyde Park Harriers. These were Amy Ramsden-Young in a PB time of 20:24 at Middleton Woods; Rebecca Gray in 20:41 at Peel; and Cara Gates in 22:44 at Phillip Island. There were 12 other PBs. These were by Jonathan Coade with 17:44, Chloe Brooks with 23:28 and Abigail Prudhoe with 23:57 at Woodhouse Moor; Vicky Houghton with 23:40 at York; Jennifer Gridley with 23:56 at Crystal Palace; Sam Dooley with 24:27, Jane Prust with 26:58, Louise Gardham with 30:10, Claire Hougham with 32:16, Stephen Prust with 35:56 and Julie Robson with 39:54 at Middleton Woods; and Nick Payne with 22:17 at Potternewton.

Claire Evans joined the parkrun 250 club with her run at Woodhouse Moor and Stephen Prust joined the parkrun 50 club with his run at Middleton Woods.

Top female Age Grade% was 74.04% by Jane Prust and top male Age Grade% was 74.24% by Michael Vargas both at Middleton Woods.
