Results from Event #65, 14th August 2021
Today we had 159 runners taking part in Fly 5k. No first timers, ironically for the first time, but a healthy 16 Fly 5k PBs. We had people taking part from 38 different running clubs.
A few shout outs..
Well done Sarah Loughrey on your lifetime PB 24:33!! Awesome achievement.
Parkrun PBs for Andrew Bates, Jamie Enever-Dodd, and others.
John Yates 1,000,000 kudoses for running Fly 5k in your Seoul apartment during self isolation.
And finally congrats to Andrew Mckillop's knee for being so healthy it swelled to the size of a football (or alien) to protect him on impact with trail - not a Fly 5k incident I must add. Hope you're doing ok now!
Well done to these people on their Fly 5k milestones today:

Congratulations to our podium toppers, listed below, and to each and every person who ran or walked today.
We have our 66th event next Saturday, and then Fly 5k Bovingdon next Sunday will be our 67th event.
If you haven't yet registered for Bovingdon but want to come along please register before the day so we know who to expect and we can send you the race information.
If you can't make it Bovingdon we hope you will still be taking part from wherever you are. We are, after all, the Run Anywhere 5k! Let me know if you want a race number posting to you.
That's it for now. You are all heroes. Stay safe, keep smiling, and in the words of Dave Allen, good night, thank you, and may your God go with you.
