Well,your intrepid run reporter is back after a weeks break from parkrun.
My wife said it was going to be a parkrun detox week without me thinking about parkrun.
We went for breakfast on the Sunday and low and behold on the table across from me was was a guy with his 25 volunteer parkrun t-shirt on
Heaven?? I felt I had to chat to him later at the pool.
Soon we had a pool posse of park runners talking about all things parkrun
i.e. Is there a parkrun in Majorca we could all go to?
We had a very good turnout for today event with 219 runners.
I was your Run Director for today and my team of volunteers did a great job.
Claire BARRIE,Alan BROWN, Martin COSSAR, Emily COSSAR, Ray CROMBIE, Kerry Anne DAVIDSON, Grant James DAVIDSON, Mark FINDLAY, Claire GORDON, Tony LITTLE, Stewart MACLENNAN, Clare RUSSELL, Malcolm SHENNAN
My thanks to the volunteers who just take it in their stride and enjoy helping and supporting and even some of the volunteers doing tasks for the first time .
YOU ARE THE HEROES
The volunteer rota has filling up well over the past few months and we are on target to get 4 weeks ahead with the rota
We played Volunteer Bingo today for a try to encourage volunteering
One of the volunteers Emily picked the numbers at random before the run and we put the numbers in the envelope and once the run had started opened the envelope and you won by whatever the number thaat matched the finishing token you received when you finished the run --You were a winner?
Hannah Mutch,Martin Cilia,Neil Roberts,Kyle Mckee,Alan Ross,Jemma Collins,Claudia Scragg,Kerry Thomas,Taryn McDonald

Where do you the best information about running ??
Books ,searching the web are options but the best information you will receive is going for Coffee after the parkrun to Satrosphere
You will gain more valuable information and tips on running,recovering and training from fellow runners
So if you are reading the run report why don't you go for a coffee and a chat after the parkrun on Saturday
It would great to see more of the runners go for coffee and support the new caterers who have a very good range of products.
Well done to Mark Ramsey,David Langdan, Mark Findlay, Rajendra Regmi and Bill Skinner,Ronald Gauld,Jim Tole and and Andrew Thompson who ran the Aberdeen Mile on Union street on Saturday
Some even had a run at our parkrun before the race
Must have been using the parkrun as a warm up guys?
