The fastest parkrunner in the world this week was Scott Westcott, running 14:23 at Newy parkrun in Australia. Interestingly, this is the new all-time parkrun record for Australia.

The all-time Australian female record was also set on the same day, with Bridey Delaney running 16:35 at Parramatta parkrun.

My favourite stat of the week was from Viv Naylor who ran 22:10 at Mansfield parkrun in the VW70-74 category, achieving an unbelievable 100.45% age grading in the process. Not too many 20 and 30 year olds can run that kind of time, so she is one very impressive lady!
