Brighton VR October Meet-up

Brighton VR October Meet-up

Dave Arnold reports back on fine VR parkrun meet-up along with some great photos, half the club are considering moving to Brighton 😉

‘Brighton VR monthly meet up (a week early!). 9 runners 3 PBs and an OAP Cat win! Out of town guests Mike Harper from Portsmouth and Holly White from Newcastle. Led home by 7th and 8th place Barry Pearson and Matthew Dowse just ahead of Mike. Goncalo Melo nudged ahead of Dave until his calf blew up but still managed to hobble to within 4 secs of his PB. Paula Blackledge fought really hard over the last km to hold her pace for another PB ….and 3rd place. Surely now has her eyes on a sub 20 . In only her 2nd run back from injury Steph again took 40 secs off her PB as did Caroline Gabriel who now really has the running bug (happy birthday for yesterday).

As usual we had our social outside the cafe and we’re joined by several ‘Vegan-curious’ …and no ‘almost-vegan’ friends. Kirsty, Tara Shanahan, David, and Rowena.

I think next month’s meet -up may also be brought forward to coincide (almost) with World Vegan Day (1st Nov) the following day, where we may be having a vegan cheese and vegan pizza promotion!!

Look forward to seeing you all again soon, and thanks for coming today!!

PS I couldn’t help chuckle at the vegan car stickers and the ice cream van with no customers….lol! ! ….but THEY chose to park next to ME! ….hence the non -running related picture!’
