This week was yet another sunny and warm parkrun for 307 runners and walkers. After a misty set up, it wasn’t long before summer resumed and the sun came back out again. 20 new faces joined us at Andover this week, with 10 of you completing your very first parkrun. Having had the opportunity to chat with a few of you, I sense you’ll be regulars in no time!!
As I mentioned, I got the opportunity to chat with a number of runners and walkers this week, along with friends and family who had come along to support. This is one of the best parts of being a Run Director, and is made possible by the amazing team of volunteers who were all busy making things run smoothly.
This week’s hi-viz team were:
Ian OLDACRE • Sheila OLDACRE • Simon EGGINGTON • Patricia COLLYER • Rob WEST • Ian BEVERIDGE • Jeremy BARBER • Wendy BEVERIDGE • Gaynor BRINDLEY • Ali PAY • Andrew JONES • Kev YOUNG • Ann EGGINGTON • Laura HIGDON • Christopher HOLMES • Karen COOK • Elizabeth HENLEY • Jennie COOK • Lois PENNY
There were a few T-shirt milestone this week, Ellie Ruscoe (jnr 10th), Karen Kilworth (50th), Andy Smith (100th) and James Penny (100th). We also had Karen Cook completing her 25th time volunteering along with celebrating her birthday.
Saturday was the last event of our ‘parkrun year’, so well done to everyone getting a PB or setting your fastest time for the year. Next week sees us celebrate our 7th birthday (that’s a lot of Saturday mornings!). Please come along in fancy dress (if you would like to) and join our birthday fun! Please have a look on the website at the future roster and if you can’t run at the moment, or have an event the following day, don’t miss out, come and join in as a volunteer. Please email us at email@example.com.
Have a lovely week,
