Results from Event #57, 19th June 2021
Good afternoon, well done to all 185 people that got out and walked, jogged, run, raced, hurdled, swung or zip wired a Fly 5K today. The Boss and results team were happy that this was legal practice. The heavy rain in the UK in the last week had clearly caused natural obstacles for some, whilst others chose to scramble over a variety of person made obstacles!
I for one was pleased of the cooler conditions, as were many others, and we saw 10 Flyers record Fly 5K PB's, well done to you all! We at Fly 5K would also like to extend a warm welcome to our new first timer, we hope to see you again next week! We had a total of 40 different running clubs represented today as well as the presence of a number of super heroes. A big Happy 50th Birthday to Wonder Woman!
We have some milestones today. Congratulations to the following: 50 Fly 5ks Ruth BENNETT & Katie BUNTING; 30 Fly 5ks Peter BARBER, Michael DIXON, James GIFFEN, Gill HUDNOTT & Roz JON ES; 20 Fly 5ks: Helen AJAEGBU, Timea ERDOS & Rasa JURYTE; 10 Fly 5ks Catherine TURLEY. Well done to you all and we hope to see many more.
