A massive turnout today 343 runners/participants and the rain held off to make it another lovely morning in the park.
Firstly a big thank you to all the volunteers this morning for making the event happen under the run directorship of Ben Bowers.
Today's first home into the finish funnel was Joseph Harrison in a time of 19.45 giving him a new PB. I had a chance to chat with Joseph in the cafe queue when he told me
"My first fun at Bognor was on Christmas Day 2016 when my brother Jack beat me, this inspired me to join a run program I now live in The Hague having completed a few parkruns this is my 2nd in Bognor" - (checking out the stats over 7minutes quicker than 2016) WELL DONE . This is a real family affair (as it is for many of us here at Bognor) Jack also runs along with mum Rose Calderwood who is proud of her 28 runs and so she should be as she suffers with MS.
This sums up our park run at Bognor - which this week features on the parkrun website -friendly and welcoming.
38 first timers (welcome - look forward to seeing you again)
51 PB's (including Lindsey Brayfield - two weeks in a row)
Juniors (10) Joseph Russian
