More than half the field records personal bests

Shawnigan Hills parkrun report for Dec. 14

Twenty parkrunners took part in event number 12 with over half the field recording personal-best times. The pick of these performances was from Rhonda Callow. Having run in the very first event back in September, she has knocked over two and a half minutes off that time, recording 28:10 in her 10th parkrun.

First finisher Craig Brown overcame a strong performance from first timer Jeremy Fehr to cross the line in 23:50, while Doug Kirby recorded a personal-best time of 24:36 in his second parkrun.

Other personal best times came from Anita Gillmore (27:26), Jeff Wright (29:03), Wolfgang Kuentzle (30:27), Kate Wright (32:43), Jeffrey Patterson (35:28), Azelyn MacAdam (35:38), Janice Anderson (39:50), Tiffany Newman (41:46) and Jackie De Jong (1:02:56).
