Canterbury parkrun

I know, I know.  It’s not a race, and it’s not all about the fast people.  But sometimes, the fast people are, to put it simply, incredible.  The first finisher at Canterbury today clocked up a time of 15:12, finishing 3 minutes and 55 seconds in front of the second finisher, and giving the lead bike a run for its money.  On a course which is not flat, has some uneven footing and which features two U-turns.

And thanks to the design of the course, two laps with an extended out and back section, we passed him (or rather, he passed us) three times, giving us ample time to admire his (running) form.
