We have reached our octogenarian state and a very damp and chilly morning greeted us and the 257 parkrunners to the Countess of Chester Country Park for 5km of damp, mud and exhilaration.
50 first timers, 36 PBs and a dedicated team of 18 volunteers were highlights of this cold morning. Our visitors included one from Gateshead who was running in the morning before supporting his team against Chester FC, (his efforts were rewarded as Gateshead won 3-1).
We also had visitors from Leeds, Davenport, Wolverhampton and Dewsbury - thankyou for visiting us.
The Core Team has also said farewell to Geoff who has stepped down. He will back to Chester, but we would like to think Geoff for the time he has put into volunteering at Chester - it is greatly appreciated.
We would like to say a huge thanks to our team of very chilly volunteers, without whom we simply could not exist. We would also like to thank The Little Owl who, on days like this, provide much needed radiators and hot drinks to defrost chilly hands and feet.
Thank you all, see you next time and DFYB!
