Race Date: Saturday 10th August 2019
I had a very strange experience on Saturday at Hallam parkrun – that of catching and passing Joe Sweetnam Powell. As I looked quizzically at him, he explained that he had a G&T race in the afternoon and Askern 10 on Sunday.
By saving himself for the afternoon race, it allowed him to go and win the G&T race. It was a 4km race, split between craft beer entries and G&T entries. The craft beer race required consuming 3 pints during the 4km. The website doesn’t actually elaborate on how many G&Ts were downed during the race – perhaps Joe will enlighten us?
Anyway 165 people entered the craft beer race with the winning time being 19.10 by Tim Nudds. There were 82 entrants for the G&T race and as mentioned above, was won by Strider, Joe Sweetnam Powell in 19.38, taking 5 minutes off the course record and winning a whopping £10 prize! Well done Joe.
