New parkrun, new PR - W2 5k smashed!

I normally do Lincoln parkrun, but Market Rasen has started a new run around the racecourse, so I decided to have a change of scenery. After last night’s rain, the going was a little “soft” but the weather was gorgeous. Most of the runners seemed to be wearing running club, half or marathon t-shirts which was a little daunting but off I went on my Magic 10 week 2 5k run. Obviously having all those serious runners must’ve been good for me because I took 49 seconds off my parkrun personal record coming in at 33.31 and 110th out of 150 runners. A gentle stroll for Hidden but I was mightily chuffed. I finished just behind the guided blind runner 😂😂. Happy running!

Ooo how lovely! 😀 I need to find a nice flat one too!

Hey, I was there too!! My first park run, missed it last week due to work. Just a plain black shirt for me, no club or marathon!!

I only found out about it earlier in the week so missed the first one. I have to say having fewer people and a more open route meant it was much less crowded than Lincoln so I will definitely be back!

Yes. I was quite impressed with it.....I normally only see the racecourse from the other side so was nice to see it from a different view!! Ran up to it, ran the 5k and ran home for a total of 9k!

Great run... congratulations on the PB.

Was it flat, hurdles or steeplechase?

Looks glorious, great time too

Hi Sandie! I just joined the Bridge forum and I was so excited to see your post. I am living abroad at the moment, but my parents live close to Market Rasen. It's so good to know that when I am home, I will be able to join this park run 😊! Excellent time and well done for getting a new PB!

Well done. It's a lovely parkrun. I was there doing week 1 5k!

It made a nice change from Lincoln, which just has too many people for the narrow bits like June’s Bridge at the start!

Thanks ju-ju! Even better that I was 1min 42 secs faster than last week, which was a toughie!

Well done Sandie on your parkrun PB this morning! My local parkrun is a racecourse too and it's always so lovely to run around. Only trouble is, it was under water this morning!
