The British international ran 15:51 at Long Eaton parkrun to top the UK parkrun rankings this weekend (March 2).

For the first time we see two females athletes break the 16 minutes barrier in the same weekend, with parkrun record holder Charlotte Arter also running a quick time of 15:56 at Cardiff parkrun.

Stockport Harrier Piasecki, a 15:29 5000m and 32:41 10000m runner, ran the super quick time at the Long Eaton parkrun near Nottingham, which has seen many quick times in the past. The Robert Hawkins coached athlete finished 2018 with a 10th position at the European cross country championships in Tilburg, Holland and is seemingly flying into spring 2019.

Welsh runner Charlotte Arter also broke 16 minutes at Cardiff parkrun for the second time this year and has had some stellar performances including a Welsh record over half marathon. The Cardiff AC star ran 69:40 at the Barcelona half marathon on the 10th February. Last week Arter was announced for the Cardiff Bay 10km race at the end of March so it will be exciting to see how quickly the  endurance athlete will run for the road event.

The rest of the parkrun UK results and the full rankings will be added once event directors have had a chance to upload their results.
