An incredible total of 37 parkrun events recorded new record attendances last weekend, as follows:
|Record Attendance||Record Week|
And in the UK it's:
The highest attendance this week was exactly 1011 at Bushy parkrun.
And outside the UK it was 564 at Newy parkrun in Australia.
The lowest attendance this week was just 7 at Durham NC parkrun.
119 runners (2 more than last week) ran under 17 minutes around the world of parkrun last weekend. 15 of them under 16 minutes. And 2 runners ran under 15 minutes.
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!
