Oak Hill Parkrun #1

My first attempt at a Parkrun. Official results: #63 overall, #47 male, #8 in age-range 35-39. Total participants: 102. Official time of 26:15.

You finished in 63rd place and were the 47th male out of a field of 102 parkrunners and you came 8th in your age category VM35-39. Take a look at this week’s full set of results on our website. Well done on your first run. We have set this as your PB.

It was in familiar surroundings – Oak Hill Park is my local park and I’ve spent many hours running through it. It may not be as big as some other local parks (e.g. Trent Park) and does suffer from clouds of flies in the evenings, but in the early mornings, pounding the paths is great fun.

My phone’s GPS fritzed again, so my Endomondo and ZR tracks were messed up. Lucky I had my SportsWatch. And the run, with the semi-competitive environment meant I destroyed my 5K PB, and managed to just get a sub-8min mile
