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!
