Hello Fartlekkers!! Hopefully you managed to tune in for the live second round draw on Sunday. If not, you can watch it in full on our IG page. On it we announced the results of round one, the winners of each tie, our 5 fastest losers going through to round 2, and we drew balls out of the bag to decide the ties for the next round.
We hope you enjoyed taking part and following the first round as much as we did. There were some very impressive performances with over half of the runners breaking post covid pbs!
Out of the 32 that are in round two, 15(!!) of them broke their all time parkrun pbs!! We are hoping for more of the same in round 2 as the competition starts to heat up.
All participants now have 4 weekends - 5th, 12th, 19th & 26th, to put in as many efforts as they wish. There is no need to submit your results as Ben will pick them up from the 5k app.
If you have any questions or concerns regarding your attempt or availability then feel free to drop Ben a message.
Finally, on behalf of the What The Fartlek team, we want to say a massive thank you to everyone that has taken part in the Parkrun Cup. Whether you are still in the cup or not, you are all winners and legends! There are no losers here. Your continued love and support is appreciated by us all
