This week’s run report, Event number 76: 15th August 2015

A large field of 119 runners enjoyed the sunny weather at Carrick this week, with 17 joining us for the first time, 30 recording a PB, and 11 clubs represented. Congratulations go to Glenda Murray and Trevor Lamb on completing their 50th parkrun - both recorded pb's, perhaps inspired by their 50th parkrun!

Carrick regular Jim Beck was featured in this week's parkrun newsletter, sent to all registered parkrunners. Jim will run his first half marathon next month to boost funds for parkrun’s official charity partner, Alzheimer’s Research UK.
The 55-year-old will line-up alongside nearly 60,000 other runners for the world’s leading 13.1-mile event, the Great North Run, on Saturday the 12th of September.
Jim will be spurred on by thoughts of his 79-year-old father, Jim Beck Snr, who was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease last year. The former oil tanker driver still lives at home but relies on the support of family and carers to help with many day-to-day tasks.
