Like most of the parkruns across Suffolk and Essex, the previous weekend’s Great Cornard parkrun was cancelled due to the snow and ice from the fall-out of the ‘Beast from the East.’
But normal service resumed on Saturday, with the 213th staging of the Great Cornard parkrun taking place from Great Cornard Sports Centre.
There was a one-two for local club Sudbury Joggers, with Todd Lewis leading home a field of 114 in a time of 19mins 44secs, which was a little behind his personal best for the course of 19:08.
His Joggers’ club-mate, Charles Hann, finished second in a PB of 19:50, while third home was Anthony Rimmer, of Maiden Newton Runners, in 19:57.
The first female finisher was Rebecca Moore, of Chichester Runners, in 21:13, although she was well adrift of her PB of 17:26.
