PRATs at the Great Run Local run report 7-5-14

great run local logoThe Prats met some running stars at the Great Run Local in Salford Quays this week with Jo Pavey and Edna Kiplagat. The full Prat crew were running, but mostly talking about just finishing.

Of course, as we know by now, Prats dont take it easy.

Martin and Hannah ran the 2k together, and no suprise as Hannah not only beat her dad by 2 seconds, but also smashed a new PB.

Chris was first home in the 5k, with not just a Personal Best for the 5k, but also taking the couple PB in his ongoing contest with Rach with a finish of 27:23, 12 seconds below his own PB and 4 seconds below Rachs PB. Unfortunately he doesnt take the Trophy theyve had made as its for Parkruns only.

Rach and her dodgy knee were next in. She managed to smash her Great Run PB by 11 seconds with a finish of 28:06.

2 seconds behind her at 28:08 was Dangerous Dunc. This was a better time than it looks as before the start Dunc thought he’d left his go pro on top of the car, so did a diversion back to the car park (confusing some other runners who thought the route had changed) and checking before rejoining. Rach was heard to say after “There was no way he was beating the Beast on a sprint finish”.”

At the finish line Martin suggested the Prats get a picture with Jo Pavey who was standing near by. We go over, and Dunc hands her his camera and asks her to take a picture of us. You can see in this Chris Rachel and Martin laughing as Dunc doesnt have a clue


We finally managed to get a pic with her tho

And after we left to go home Dunc googled her and realised she wasnt one of Rachels friends, but instead was an olympic gold medalist!
