Autumn colours for #321

The sun came out on a gorgeous autumn morning for our 85 runners - a bit down on numbers but it was also the weekend of the Cardiff Half and Chester Marathon, both favourites of our regulars. Lots of milestones: 14 years to the day since parkrun started as Bushy Park Time Trial; Danny Thorogood's 100th parkrun, and Catherine Howarth's 50th parkrun. Thanks for the cake and fruit both of you, and congratulations! As always, a big welcome to all our visitors and first-timers, we hope you enjoyed our fast flat course.

Event #320

A chilly sunny morning and a great turnout for this event, which almost became a buggy race, as we had 2 very fast dads pushing buggies at a speed which must have been quite exhilarating for the toddlers in them! Those on their own 2 feet were treated to dry cool conditions which led to a large number of PBs. A couple of these were earned by parkrun tourists who appreciated the speed they could generate on our flat tarmac route - not what they were used to! A big welcome to all the tourists, first-timers, and of course our trusty band of regulars, and many thanks to all the volunteers - parkrun couldn't happen without you.

At least the storms had blown over, the wind had abated, and there was no damage in the park other than a few twigs and leaves. It was great to welcome so many visitors - must have been something to do with Freshers' Week!

Gary’s wedding day and the Williams’ milestones

Great day for a parkrun, Gary brought along some fast male members of his wedding entourage so we had some very speedy finishers at the front. Pre-wedding nerves and a late night got the better of Gary himself so he stopped early and watched the others - just as well, we didn't want him to trip and injure himself before those wedding photos! Another happy couple, husband and wife Clive and Helen, celebrated their 50th and 100th parkruns respectively - thanks for the cakes and fruit! Several PBs also happened, some of them from people who have been parkrunning for years, so maybe there was a knock-on effect from the fast lads at the front? A big welcome to all our visitors too, and thanks for your kind comments.

Event #317 and Ollie’s 200th!

Well done to everyone who braved the rain and puddles this morning, either for running or for volunteering - it was lovely to see so many hanging around at the end despite the weather, to enjoy the spectacular cakes that Jane had made for Ollie's 200th run!
