What a flashy mob!

Monday 31st October 2016

Over 40 Phoenix athletes, from all age groups, responded to the call for a flash mob at Preston Park parkrun on Saturday 29th October. We finished with lead runner, ten in the top twenty and 12 PBs.

First home was Max Pickard in 15:37, a meaty minute and a half ahead of the second placed runner. Alex Cruttenden was 3rd, Jonny McCormack 4th, Ash Dorrington 6th and Paul Weir 7th.

There were PBs for Mekdes Berry, Madelaine Parmar, Anna Berry, Tim griffin, Richard Thompson, Steve Selby, Paul Whelpton, Nigel Herron, Tom Sanderson, Alex Bonzi, Matt Greenall and Ash Dorrington.


What you may ask is the point of a flash mob? First of course is that it's great fun but it does raise the profile of the club and there was certainly a buzz around the event with quite a few fellow runners asking who? how? what?

And, of course, sunlight reflecting off of all those white vests looked pretty impressive.

Well done Paul Whelpton for organising.

What a mob you are!

Keep an eye out for the next one.
