VRUK at October Hove Park Run

Vegan Runners Brighton, October Parkrun Meet-up

Our group continues to grow and to get younger! This month saw Sam Wilson make a return to Parkrun though clearly suffering from a recent lack of training and slower than he’s capable of. There was an impressive debut run from Stephi who we hope will be back for more. Coincidentally Chris and Paula both ran EXACTLY to within an agonising 1 second of their respective Course Bests whilst the star of the day was a PB run of under 30 minutes from their 9 year old daughter Astrid which she did running alone for the first time. Her joy at this was clearly evident! By my reckoning Astrid was 8th in her category (JW,Junior Women) which is great as it includes all those up to 14 years. It turns out that the next JW behind Astrid, also 9, is a life-long veggie…along with her parents too!
Perhaps the only disappointment of the day was the rain, the lack of Paula’s fantastic cheesecake (returning next month we believe!) and the ridiculously long wait to get served in the cafe afterwards. However we did enjoy Paula’s ‘Mrs Crimble’ cake and a brown stodgy creation from Dave! Next VR Brighton Parkrun Meet-up will be Sat 10th November (the 2nd sat of the month). Probably a good idea to bring own refreshments and avoid the queue!
