Here's the updated PB list. There were improvements from Dan Byrom, Matt Could and Junaid Mubeen, and I've added Dave Robjohns, Melody Coupe, Rachael Montgomery and Adam Beach to the list. We're now on 70! Also I'm considering doing an age-graded percentage list as well.
Gavin Chipper wrote: Thu Nov 12, 2015 8:39 pm 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.

OK, so here is the age-grade percentage list for you to look at. Some people have gone up; some people have gone down compared to the time list. You can see what has happened to you. A few random highlights - Tim Springett has gone from 8th to 3rd; David Williams has gone from 36th to 6th; Matthew Tassier has gone from 25th to 10th; Harry Whitehouse from 46th to 13th; Fiona T from 53rd to 21st. Interestingly Mike Springett has leapfrogged a few people and gone from 20th to 18th. He was in the 18-19 category when he got his best percentage, but there's not that much difference between that and being in your 20s I think. I think what did it for him was that he set his time in 2011, and they used to have different (easier) tables, so it's a bit of a hack!

1. John Ashcroft - 84.59%
2. Oliver Garner - 81.13%
3. Tim Springett - 80.22%
4. Gevin Chapwell - 77.66%
5. Tim Down - 76.90%
6. David Williams - 76.22%
7. Paul Nixon 74.30%
8. Jonathan Rawlinson - 74.14%
9. Matt Bayfield - 73.88%
10. Matthew Tassier - 71.70%
11. James Bradley - 69.72%
12. Dan Spinks - 68.92%
13. Harry Whitehouse - 68.84%
14. Andy Noden - 67.91%
15. James Laverty - 66.67%
16. Matt Gould - 66.56%
17. Giles Hutchings - 65.15%
18. Michael Springett - 64.72%
19. Conrad Teixeira - 64.13%

21. Fiona T - 63.97%
22. Jon Elmer - 63.58%

I think Springett's percentage would be 63.05 with the current tables putting him back to 25th, but there might also be other old times affected by this.

Nice. I'm hoping to get back to parkrun at some point in the next few months once my injuries improve, then I'll be trying to get my times back to anywhere near what they used to be, I'm five minutes and more off my best at this stage.

What up. We decided to make a countdowners 'running club' that you can put on your parkrun profile and stuff. Even if you're a member of a real club you can still add this one as a non primary one so people can see results and stuff https://www.parkrun.org.uk/groups/48972/
cheers maus
