News - Week commencing 28 July

For the first time in a few weeks the most popular event for Istead & Ifield was not the Shorne parkrun, but the Dinosaur 10k at Deal, which had nine I & I representatives.

Friday evening saw the Cranbrook 10k and 5k events, where Steve Ball and Sadie Forrest both had good runs. Second off the mark was Gillian Calliste at the Bluewater 4k time trial on Saturday morning. Gillian followed up her Saturday run with another early start at the Sunday morning Cyclorun

The Shorne Parkrun had seven of our runners, with Mark Pywell leading home our men in second place overall on his 50th Parkrun. Sally George was our first female, and second female overall. Other parkrunners this weekend were John McGuirk and Amy Bradford at the inaugural Dartford Parkrun, Louise Stapley at Chippenham, and Alan Cowan at Pollock Park.
