Crisp and very cold, 261 people ran, jogged and walked the course, of whom 43 were first timers and 39 recorded new Personal Bests. Wow!
A huge thank you to the 16 volunteers: Darryl DAVISON • Rosie SHELDON • Janet SMITH • William GRIFFITHS • Matthew SHELDON • Alister MCDONOUGH • Shane LANGAN • Sophie DORMAN • Katie DORMAN • Stephanie BURNS • Cassidy ASHWORTH • Tania SKELLI • Wolfie SMITH • Louie MEKLER • Nathan YAOZ • Haleema STONE.
Please consider volunteering 3 times a year minimum. Today, we ideally would have had more volunteers and next week sounds icy too so we need marshals who can stay on the course for 3 laps.
One runner was physically moved aside by one of the fast runners today. This is unacceptable and will not be tolerated. Run Directors rely on all parkrunners to be the eyes and ears on the course so if anything like this happens to you, please let the Run Director know as soon as possible so we can raise it with the individual directly. A small minority of runners, fast or slow, should not jeopardize the enjoyment of many.
Some bar codes were dropped - so please ask if you've lost yours. And we've lost token 238 - please bring it back!
Congratulations to Michael YOULTON for completing 150 runs and to Phil RUTTER for 100!
