Perfect 10 for Jake and Katie at Fareham parkrun
JAKE FARMER and Katie Brooks achieved milestones at Fareham parkrun on Saturday completing their 10th run.
It was a warm summer morning and Jake ran with his dad, Daniel, and Sarah Moulding, Jessica Moulding and Oliver Moulding.
A total of 153 runners completed the 5k course and many went back to the Cams Mill pub for a coffee and a social chat with the volunteers after the run.
In warm conditions it was tough to chase the personal bests but 22 runners achieved their fastest time for the Fareham parkrun course.
It was also great to see 60 of the runners doing the Fareham event for the first time.
The flat course is good for fast running. It is also in a lovely setting, ideal for those who enjoy a leisurely morning 5k.
