Sophie Wallis and Noah Howlett ran the fastest parkrun times in the UK this weekend (6th July).

Our weekly parkrun top ten is now sponsored by the Coggiola Endurance Centre, a residential coaching and performance facility in the Italian Alps. Follow on Instagram for more updates in the new future. 

Sophie Wallis took it upon herself to stop an Edinburgh parkrun shut out of the top spots this weekend, but there was nothing she could do about the men’s podium. 16:09 at Yarborough Leisure Centre parkrun is some time, but still a long way off a parkrun PB, which is an eye watering 15:35 from Doddington Hall parkrun in May.

We imagine it was a sprint finish for Noah Howlett, who was getting his training in before the rain starts this evening at Edinburgh parkrun and leading home a 1-2-3 for the Scottish event. A big parkrun PB of 15:12 for the Edinburgh AC athlete, but a 14:28 5k on road at Podium 5K a few weeks ago shows the kind of form he is in.

The best of the rest

Continuing our Edinburgh themed article this week Nancy Scott was first woman and another under 17 minutes with 16:53 for the Aldershot, Farnham and District AC runner. After 16:50 at the same event in June, and a 74:23 half marathon PB the strength that came from a second place at the Lindsays Scottish National Championships on the XC is shining through.

The next two male runners were both at Edinburgh too with Jack Eykelbosch just two seconds back in 15:14 and Rowan Taylor having a front row seat in 15:26. Equalling Taylor at Storey’s Field parkrun was Sam Pedley with a 15:26 as well.

Alice Crane was also under 17 minutes in a high quality parkrun top 10 weekend for the women’s rankings with 16:58 at Rushcliffe parkrun for the Dorking and Mole Valley AC runner.

The fastest course?

With a 1-2-3 in the men’s and a 2nd in the women’s it’s an easy decision to give the title to Edinburgh this week with a lot of Scottish events in the list this week.
