It was a quiet weekend for Garden City Runners as marathon training, the wet weather and Mother's Day took the spotlight.

There was still plenty going on at parkruns on Saturday morning with 119 from the Welwyn Garden City-based club out and about.

Panshanger as usual attracted a good GCR turn-out with Dan Pudner finishing second in 18 minutes 34 seconds followed by Simon Bostock in fourth, five seconds behind and four seconds ahead of Peter Harvey in fifth.

Jamie Rose got another PB as he came seventh in 18:48 and Bruce Judge rounded out the top 10.

Martin Mitchell grabbed himself a PB of 19:36 and Steve Ellerd-Elliott and Matt Baker completed the group under the 20-minute barrier.

Jessica Timmins was the first lady to finish and she too picked up a PB, clocking 20:38.

Other GCRs achieving PBs at Panshanger included Sam Males (24:05), Clare Wildey (24:44) and Alison Patterson (30:25).

Elsewhere, there were other notable results that stood out, including PAUL GUY who ran 18:30 at Moors Valley to finish sixth.

Nigel Cavill got a PB of 21:09 at Stevenage and Chris Jones did the same at Great Denham in 21:18.

Stephanie Kearns did the same at Conyngham Hall in Knaresborough, North Yorkshire with 33:53.

Panshanger though wasn't just about running though with the 1st Welwyn Scouts also out fundraising.

They were undeterred by the appalling weather on their first outing and are returning to Panshanger each week to serve athletes a drink and a snack.

They will accept cards or cash money.

The fundraiser is designed to help finance the troop’s summer trip to Kandersteg International Scout Center in Switzerland, where they hope to meet scouts from all over the world and help to further develop the international scouting community.

Bruce Judge said: "As well as a runner, I am also a scout Leader in Welwyn village and as part of the fund-raising for our international summer experience, the scouts are providing hot drinks and cakes at Panshanger Parkrun each week.

"We are hoping to raise £4,000 to help pay for the trip and make this amazing opportunity affordable for our young people."

The scouts will also be running a bake sale in the Welwyn area, doing a sponsored litter pick and much more.
