Our second parkrun of the year was a little warmer and every so slightly less muddy than the last few weeks have been! We welcomed 118 people to Canons Park this week, with 23 people being first timers to Canons. We want to say thank you to those of you who travelled far to be with us (we welcomed runners from Hertfordshire, Edinburgh and even an RD from South Africa!). Of the 23 first timers, 13 of our runners completed their first ever parkrun! It's lovely to see so many new faces; we hope you continue to enjoy parkrun and return again soon!
19 of our runners recorded personal bests this week, which included 8 people who were doing their second parkrun. Well done guys, you should all be proud of your achievements!
Our first finishers today were:
Men - Daniel Dalquen
Women - Katie Self
Boys - Aaron O'Connell (who actually finished first - well done Aaron!)
Girls - Maryam Janmohamed
As always, we need to say a massive thank you to all of our volunteers this weekend - we couldn't hold a parkrun without them. This week's volunteers were: Mark MULVENNA • Meryl WALKER • Lily WALKER • Wendy MULVENNA • Shama MEGHJEE-CAINE • Cara MISAN • Andrew SOUTHERLAND-KIRBY • Sean SOUTHERLAND-KIRBY • Kanti VARSANI • Florentina COLACIOIU • Soraya JANMOHAMED • Christine LENNON • Kevin ZIANTS • Sharon LAIFER • Evie LAIFER
We would love it you could volunteer occasionally too - none of our roles are too hard (all necessary training is given) and its a really rewarding role! Look at our future roster on the Canons Park parkrun website to see what is available then email us or message us on Facebook to tell us what you would like to do.
I hope you guys have a good week and that we will see plenty of you again next Saturday.
