A wet dark autumn morning didn't stop 366 runners and walkers leaving their beds to attend parkrun.They were rewarded with the rain easing off and a fantastic team of volunteers to clap, cheer, direct and process their efforts. We had 43 first timers to Andover with 26 their first ever parkrun,well done all of you and I hope you felt welcome and enjoyed the course.
The conditions clearly suited some with 33 pbs including regulars Kirsten Hill, Ali Pay and Rob Price.
Max Cleary earned his junior 10 white milestone t-shirt and Stuart Maries, Catherine Hicklin, Charlie McCoy, Mary Clarke, Beccy Turner and Jessica Cawton all earned their red 50 milestone t-shirts. Happy Birthday Jess.
If you would like to volunteer send us a message, you can view the spaces that need filling at www.parkrun.org.uk/andover/futureroster .
Thanks to our RD team we will be holding 2 extra parkruns over the Christmas period, Christmas day at 9 am and New years day at 9 am.These are the only extra parkruns permitted by parkrun and only take place due to our fantastic team and volunteers. These two days are also the only time events can change start times with 10.30 being the latest. It is only possible to do one parkrun Christmas day but you can do a double on new years day,so check out other local events for New years day start times.
Have a great week
