Parkruns 

With no parkrun in Swindon this week, our three youngsters went head to head at Chippenham.  The competition brought the best out of  Luke Campbell(17.13), who with no triathlons to distract him, achieved a great new PB.  No far behind, Isaac McAdam(17.51)  although registering a PB for the Chippenham course, was not able to better his best Swindon time of 17.22.  Ollie Campbell(19.02) just failed to match his PB of 18.54 but we confidently expect to see him dip below 19 minutes again very soon.
