Record attendance day for parkrun UK and worldwide as those New Year resolutions kicked in. It was a Striders record attendance at Tees Barrage with over 50 athletes and volunteers in attendance. However, it appears the place to be if you wanted to go quick was Albert Park where Stella Hudson, Teresa Parker, Rachel Carr and Michael Hodgkiss all PB’ed.
That’s not to say nobody else matched that achievement. Joanne Camp at Flatts Lane and Jason Pattison at Hartlepool set their new best times. We also had a couple of athletes at Sedgefield and Stewart Park plus a lone star at Lullingstone.
