What a scorcher we had this week and I take my hat off to the 231 of you that ran, jogged and walked the course, of whom 40 were first timers with visitors from New Jersey, New York, Manchester, Catterick and some of neighbouring parkruns. Despite the heat 27 of you recorded new Personal Bests. Representatives of 17 different clubs took part.
Congratulations to the C25K group from Run-Anon who graduated this week. We hope you enjoyed your run and we loved to see you back with us soon.
On the milestone front Isaac McCollum was our first finisher whilst recording a PB and completed his 10th run. Jonathan Porter completed his 50th, Nuala McKay completed her 100th and 2 of our run directors Shauna Gibson & Aidan O’Neill completed their 150th.
Finally a special thanks to Tania, Fionnuala and Ricky for providing the refreshments. I think with the weather we had the ice cold drinks went down well.
The event was made possible by 15 volunteers:
Richard MASON • Heather CHESTNUTT • Paul MALLON • Norman MAWHINNEY • Frances MCALEER • Shauna GIBSON • Lynette MCBRIDE • Liam DEAN • Brian MURRAY • Brenda DEVLIN • Nicola WYLIE • Tanya SMITH • Barbara BEATTIE • Nathan DAVIDSON • Wes BARKER
