I've updated the rankings again. James Laverty has improved from 19:27 to 19:26 since the last update, and I've added Jack Worsley.

Right, I'm going to put up a ranking list of Countdown/Apterous parkrunners. I'll check it every so often to see if anyone's beaten their PB, and if anyone is really insistent that they don't want to be on the list, then I can remove their name. And if I've forgotten anyone, let me know and I can add them. This list is unlikely to be anywhere near exhaustive.

It probably belongs in the 'Really obvious things that you've only just realised' thread, but there's all these people who run past where I live when I'm out for my run on a Saturday morning. They stand around in a car-park for a quarter of an hour, then they do exactly the same course every week no matter what the weather's like. It doesn't look like any sort of race, as only a handful of them are decent runners, and I just thought it was some fairly pointless local health initiative. It was only when I happened to look at the parkrun thread it dawned on me what was going on. And no, I've never done one, and I don't expect to break 45 minutes for 10K ever again.

[I think you told me which one it was but I've forgotten. Good luck with it, anyway. Also, I'd definitely recommend joining a running club.
It's the Chelmsford marathon. Not exactly a big event, but I think it's a fast enough course, and I'm aiming for under 3 hours.
I got 3:09:16 in the end. It was going well for most of it, but the last three miles killed me. I was on for under 3 hours for more than 22 miles though. It was also very windy because of storm Brian. Still, I've got London to make up for it.

David Williams now added. Interestingly his age-graded score (76.22%) is higher than Oliver Garner's (75.59%). Although you can debate the relevance of these scores as much as you like.

At the Huddersfield parkrun before CO:Hud, me and Mike Springett both took part, and here are the results with points in brackets:

10. Gevin Chapwell - 19:04 (66.7)
97. Mike Springett - 23:23 (33.3)

And here is the updated points table:

1. Gevin Chapwell - 355
2. Mike Springett - 110
3. Oliver Garner - 83.3
4. Stephen Read - 53.3
5. Conrad Teixeira - 50

8. Zubair Patel - 40
9. Giles Hutchings - 33.3
10. Suzy Turner - 25
And Birmingham was the final round of the championship. It was just me (and 511 other people) taking part, and the results are as follows, with points in brackets:

35. Gevin Chapwell - 19:31 (50)

35th is very low down for a time of 19:31, so it's a very competitive parkrun. I'm nowhere near PB form though, having had over three weeks off after the marathon (I went to Mexico and the US; it wasn't just slacking) and taking a while to get back to form. My PB time of 18:22 would have put me 9th, so there were a lot of people in the space of about a minute. Anyway, the final points table:

1. Gevin Chapwell - 405
2. Mike Springett - 110
3. Oliver Garner - 83.3
4. Stephen Read - 53.3
5. Conrad Teixeira - 50
=. James Laverty - 50
=. Dave Ryan - 50
8. Zubair Patel - 40
9. Giles Hutchings - 33.3
10. Suzy Turner - 25

So that makes me the inaugural CO:parkrun annual champion and the greatest runner of all time.

COLIN was the first CO-event of the year, and with it we had the first CO-parkrun event. Five of us were in attendance, but Mike Springett fell and was unable to continue, so there was some discussion as to whether he should count as an entrant for scoring purposes. But in the end, we decided that he should be included - after all parkrun is an inclusive thing. It's all about taking part. Or something. The results are as follows:

12. Gevin Chapwell - 19:49 (83.3 points)
36. Giles Hutchings - 21:14 (66.7 points)
125. Zubair Patel - 24:56 (50 points)
173. Rose Boyle - 26:46 (33.3 points)
Mike Springett - DNF (16.7 points)

This was also a PB for Zubair, beating the previous 26:54 - an anagram of his new record. Rose has also escaped the PB list until now, so I'll do an update. Incidentally her PB of 25:46 is also an anagram of both Zubair's times.

So there you have it. We now have 30 people on the list. Zubair has shot up to number 24 in the standings, and Rose is a new entry at number 25. I couldn't find any other improvements.

Before Co:Bris, me and Tom Feilding both took part in the Ashton Court parkrun, with Tom making his CO:parkrun debut. The results out of 427 runners:

15. Gevin Chapwell - 20:09 (66.7 points)
265. Tom Feilding - 29:43 (33.3 points)

It was a very difficult course actually. Basically up a hill for the first half and down a hill for the second half, and very windy to boot. On the way down, the limiting factor was as much that you felt you were going trip and go flying as it was anything to do with fitness. If I were to do it again, I'd push much harder on the way up and basically exhaust myself, and then take the ride down. I think it would be quicker overall. Anyway, the points table:

1. Gevin Chapwell - 150
2. Giles Hutchings - 66.7
3. Zubair Patel - 50
4. Rose Boyle - 33.3
4. Tom Feilding - 33.3
6. Mike Springett - 16.7

The top two on this list (me and Giles) are also both doing the London Marathon on 22nd April, so watch out for us there!

I've now updated the PB list to include Tom Feilding. His best time of 26:16 puts him 26th, just one second ahead of Stephen Read. Also, Giles Hutchings has taken 11 seconds off his PB in getting 20:08. He goes from being one second behind Adam Gillard to being one second behind Conrad Teixeira. If he can get ahead of Conrad, there's a bit of open space before James Laverty.

Branching out from the parkrun, me and Giles Hutchings both did the London Marathon yesterday:

Gevin Chapwell: 3:43:06
Giles Hutchings: 4:19:15

I think that was Giles's first marathon so automatically his PB. Tim Down and Matt Bayfield have also done marathons in the past, so I could get a PB list up:

1. Tim Down - 2:57:19
2. Gevin Chapwell - 3:09:16
3. Matt Bayfield - 3:09:22 (I think)
4. Giles Hutchings - 4:19:15

Apparently Jonathan Rawlinson did the London Marathon as well and absolutely smashed it in 2:58:36. So we have:

1. Tim Down - 2:57:19
2. Jonathan Rawlinson - 2:58:36
3. Gevin Chapwell - 3:09:16
4. Matt Bayfield - 3:09:22
5. Giles Hutchings - 4:19:15

Don't think he's an Apterite, but I'd wager that Jonny Currie is the finest runner to have appeared on the show in recent years, and by quite a margin too. His parkrun PB of 16.33 (16.07 on a road 5k) is quite modest compared to his track PBs, which include 1:52.77 for 800, which isn't far off what you need to make the British Championships.

I looked him up after he'd been on actually. Pretty good.

Pre-CO:LON, me, Oliver Garner, Giles Hutchings and Mike Springett all completed the Mile End parkrun. James Laverty was also there in a spectating capacity. It was probably the most competitive parkrun I've ever done. There were 385 runners, and the results were as follows:

13. Oliver Garner - 18:22 (80 points)
39. Gevin Chapwell - 19:16 (60 points)
71. Giles Hutchings - 20:52 (40 points)
150. Mike Springett - 23:45 (20 points)

And the points table:

1. Gevin Chapwell - 210
2. Giles Hutchings - 106.7
3. Oliver Garner - 80
4. Zubair Patel - 50
5. Mike Springett - 36.7
6. Rose Boyle - 33.3
6. Tom Feilding - 33.3

A few changes on this since I last updated it. Jonathan Rawlinson is getting ever closer to Oliver Garner with a new PB of 17:24 to beat his old time of 17:41. James Laverty has improved five seconds to go from 19:26 to 19:21 but stays 8th overall. Hopefully he'll be back running soon. And Giles Hutchings goes from 20:08 to 19:48, passing Conrad Teixeira in the process.

Before CO:Cam, there was the Cambridge parkrun. I was the only person to attend both, but Jonathan Rawlinson was also spotted at the parkrun! But as he didn't come to CO:Cam, he doesn't qualifying for the CO:parkrun competition. Out of 588 runners, the results:

16. Gevin Chapwell - 19:14 (50 points)

The overall points:
1. Gevin Chapwell - 260
2. Giles Hutchings - 106.7
3. Oliver Garner - 80
4. Zubair Patel - 50
5. Mike Springett - 36.7
6. Rose Boyle - 33.3
6. Tom Feilding - 33.3

Re: CO:parkrun Recaps

Before .co.mk I did the Linford Wood parkrun (it was just me this time), which is the other Milton Keynes parkrun, since I've already done the actual Milton Keynes parkrun twice. And I finished first, which is the first time I've done that as a tourist! The results out of 219 runners:

1. Gevin Chapwell - 18:51 (50 points)

The overall points:

1. Gevin Chapwell - 310
2. Giles Hutchings - 106.7
3. Oliver Garner - 80
4. Zubair Patel - 50
5. Mike Springett - 36.7
6. Rose Boyle - 33.3
6. Tom Feilding - 33.3

Apparently Jonathan Rawlinson did the London Marathon as well and absolutely smashed it in 2:58:36. So we have:

1. Tim Down - 2:57:19
2. Jonathan Rawlinson - 2:58:36
3. Gevin Chapwell - 3:09:16
4. Matt Bayfield - 3:09:22
5. Giles Hutchings - 4:19:15
I've done one marathon, 3:53:53. So I'm top of the palindromic marathon time list.

C2: SEATING (7)
Score: 108–16 (max 113)

Another niner for Adam and yet another century. Well done, that man."

Decent. I'll update it at some point.

Bournemouth saw just me doing the parkrun. The results out of 469 runners:

6. Gevin Chapwell - 18:30 (50 points)

That's actually my second fastest parkrun time (my PB being 18:22 at King's Lynn last year).

The overall points:

1. Gevin Chapwell - 360
2. Giles Hutchings - 106.7
3. Oliver Garner - 80
4. Zubair Patel - 50
5. Mike Springett - 36.7
6. Rose Boyle - 33.3
6. Tom Feilding - 33.3

Last year I was champion with 405 points. I'm probably only doing Birmingham in the rest of this year, but if only I do it, that would be 50 points bringing a new record yearly total of 410! But let's not get ahead of ourselves!

Actually I did this one too. Was so surprised to come first with a time of 16:30 I forgot to scan my barcode! I was only expecting around the 17 minute mark, but nevertheless was happy to beat my uncle George (21st place) on his debut.

That's funny because the winning time was recorded at 17:06. Also weird that I didn't see you in front of me in the early stages - I saw five people in front of me and none of them were you!

And as I'm sure you're aware, Jonathan Rawlinson did the Cambridge parkrun on CO:CAM weekend but received no points because he didn't come to the CO event. So unfortunately it's no points for you for several reasons.

When are we next doing a bet race?
