Thornbury Running Club

JOHN Grimsey was back in Weston as a pace maker in the Five Mile Prom Run last Thursday.

After moving from Thornbury to Weston after he retired, John has been a regular in this monthly race and ran 53:18 mins in 350th place.

John had already raced at the gruelling Doynton Hard Half Marathon a few days prior to Weston, so his appearance at Burnham and Highbridge parkrun on Saturday was his third race in a week.

He ran a new personal best on this course in 33:21 mins.

There were three Thornbury runners at Chipping Sodbury parkrun, the first finisher for the club was Kevin Wood in 23:42 mins.

David Palmer was next in a time of 27:38 mins, followed by Anne Palmer in 33:13 mins.
