Event #288 Rain again!

Despite the cold, wet and gusty conditions 80 hardy people completed the 5k route with smiles on their faces. There was a hint of Spring in the air with snowdrops, colourful crocuses and even a couple of daffodils in the park! The grass, however, was a sea of mud after all the rain, and the ducks think the "ponds" are permanent and have taken up residence. Huge thanks to the volunteers, and to the Rugby Club for their coffee and baps!

Event #287 – Rain and a celebrity!

Saturday's 111 runners were greeted by torrential rain again as the volunteers did their best to cover up all the spare clothes that were left on the bench. Paper barcodes fell apart, one of the scanners decided it was too cold to work, and everyone got wet and cold but spirits were high as usual! We were all amazed to meet Steve Tunstall, international cross-country runner in the late 80s/early 90s, who regularly used to run 5k in under 14 minutes. Although Steve didn't run this time, his presence may have encouraged a few PBs........

Event #278 – escaped the ice again!

Despite having to scrape ice off the car windscreen, our parkrun route was blissfully ice-free and runners had come from as far afield as Shrewsbury because so many of the inland parkruns had been affected by ice. One of the joys of being by the seaside! Well done to all those who turned up to run on this cold morning, especially those who were slightly the worse for wear after work Christmas parties, and a special thank you to all the volunteers who stand in the cold. A particular well done today to 10-year old first-timer Osian, who was running 5k as part of his fundraising efforts.
