Event number 376
15th December 2018
cold - COLD - COLD !
It was such a cold morning on Saturday, with a bitter south-east wind. It was bad enough shivering in the cold as a runner, but spare a thought for the wonderful volunteers who made this week's event possible:
John HARVEY • Andrew GARNER • James MOORE • Noel BLATCHFORD • Lucy HAMILTON • Wendy MILLATT • Maria HAMILTON • Robert THICKETT • Emily SCHMIDT • Simon FREEMAN • Rita HOLLINGTON • Mike LITCHFIELD • Karen PULFORD • Arthur DAWKINS • Anne BUCKLEY • Rose BUCKLEY • Don OLDCORN • Karen OLDCORN • Kathy CLARKE • Will BENFOLD • Simon BURBIDGE • Luke BROWN • Skye MCSORLEY
It was slightly less muddy than last week, as the ground had frozen making the going a bit easier.
We had 260 participants this week who chose to run, jog, or walk the course.
There were 16 first timers to Abingdon, made up of 10 tourists whose home events are elsewhere, and 6 taking part in their first-ever parkrun.
28 people recorded new Personal Bests.
There were Milestones to celebrate:
As you'd expect, there was plenty of cake to be had!
