The final CO-event of the year happened in Wolverhampton Saturday, and a whopping five of us did the wet Wolverhampton parkrun beforehand. Here are the results out of 321 runners:

7. Gevin Chapwell - 19:09
92. Jonathan Wynn - 26:24
256. Fiona T - 34:42

Er, I can't seem to find Callum or Bradley in the results, so I'll get back to you...


Bradley made the rookie error of forgetting his barcode.

Cal scanned, but for some reason the result hasn't registered. He should email, but is not sufficiently arsed to do so.

I believe the finish order was

Gevin
JW
Cal
Bra
Fiona

We all got free rice and olive oil from the co-op though :)

Thanks Fiona. I'd messaged them both anyway and what you say backs up their claims! So I'll start again:

The final CO-event of the year happened in Wolverhampton Saturday, and a whopping five of us did the wet Wolverhampton parkrun beforehand. Here are the results out of 321 runners:

7. Gevin Chapwell - 19:09 (83.3 points)
92. Jonathan Wynn - 26:24 (66.7 points)
220. Callum Todd - 32:07 (50 points)
240. Bradley Horrocks - 33:23 (33.3 points)
256. Fiona T - 34:42 (16.7 points)

Callum and Bradley's positions and times are estimates, but the order of the five of us is not thought to be controversial, so it wouldn't affect the championship points anyway. Callum said he thought he took about 31 minutes and that it could therefore be position 199 or 202 (both unknown runners in the results), but his Strava log says he took 32:03, so I've given him position 220 (also an unknown), which finished in 32:07, although I'm happy to discuss this further. Bradley thought he was position 240 (an unknown), and I've given him that. Unknown runners aren't given a time in the parkrun results, but you can find them on runbritainrankings here.

The final standings then:

The standings:

1. Gevin Chapwell (440.6 points)
2. Callum Todd (223.3 points)
3. Fiona T (150.6 points)
4. Jonathan Wynn (122.2 points)
5. Oliver Garner (80 points)
6. Tim Down (77.8 points)
7. David Hilton (66.7 points)
=. Eddy Byrne (66.7 points)
9. Dave Ryan (44.4 points)
10. Mike Springett (33.3 points)
=. Bradley Horrocks (33.3 points)
11. Suzy Turner (11.1 points)

I had messed up Fiona's points earlier in the year but it should be rectified now for this final list (I haven't kept a spreadsheet but have just been adding on to the previous results, which might be dangerous). 440.6 points is a new annual record as well.

Why did you get free rice and olive oil?
