Results from Event #64, 7th August 2021

Well done to 164 people that got out and walked, jogged, ran or raced their Fly 5K today. It was great to see a wide range of 5K's as a parkrun and also being incorporated in longer runs ranging from 5 miles to Ultra Marathons.

It was great to see all of your selfies, pictures and comments. I particularly enjoyed the runners in Scotland who completed 'McFly 5K' and when running with your dog at a parkrun is called 'barkrun', is this a thing? I am so out of touch!

On a personal note I was pleased of the less sunny conditions, although other Flyers may not agree, many spent their Fly 5K drenched, with a mixture of emotions about it. Of the 164 people, 4 were first timers (welcome), 8 recorded PB's (Congratulations) and we had a total of 38 different running clubs represented, including the first official outing of 'Spider Runners' at Fly 5K.

We have some milestones today, congratulations to the following: 50 Fly 5ks Sarah HEDGES, Eileen SINDOLE & Julie TRIBE; 30 Fly 5ks Rachel MACKIE & Louise WILKERSON; 20 Fly 5ks Debbi BARNETT, Philip HICKS, Cristina MARIA, Steve MULDOON, Ian RINGER and Barry SMITH; 10 Fly 5ks Joel GILL. Well done to you all and we hope to see many more!

Maybe it's because I've been out of the running game myself now for a little while, but when Dani's post came asking for people to submit three words that summed up Fly 5k for them, the word "running"

Dear Fly 5kers, It is with a heavy heart but with very fond memories and lots of new found friends, that today we announce that Fly 5k, the weekly event as we know it, will be coming to a close at our

The hungover Fly 5k after the hosts night out! We enjoyed a beer (or two) and cracked open a really horrible old bottle of Cava, which I blame for the submission form problem! Thanks for all your pati
