Vests on Tour

Tokoinranta, Finland (Sam’s 250th parkrun)

As always, there was a big turnout for the Cardiff 10k on Sunday morning. First three men home for the club were Jamie Parry in 33: 41, Lee Aherne in 33:51 and Gareth Williams in 34:04. Lauren Cooper was the first woman home finishing in 35:40 followed by Nicola Jukes in 39:31 and Hayley Jackson in 44:57.
Both Stephen Phillips, Helen Williams, Suzie Tew and Teresa Davies scored PBs finishing 42:36, 45:38, 47:07 and 52:59 respectively. I’m sure there may have been other PBs too.
