Today we were delighted to welcome a new Run Director to the core volunteer team. Mark MANLEY is a regular parkrunner, volunteer and Worksop Harrier. I'm sure you'll all agree he did a fantastic job this morning?
He was there early to set everything up, did a recce of the course to ensure it was clear of any obstructions, greeted all the volunteers, delegated the organising of the volunteers to his wife LEE-ANNE, made coffee, briefed the new runners, briefed the rest of the runners, started the run, ensured everything went smoothly around the finish area, helped pack away, made more coffee, ate cake, processed the results and locked up. Once he'd finished his stint at Clumber, he rushed home to write the run report for this week. Next week, he'll be wearing his Superman outfit!
Here's Mark's run report:-
As Winnie the Pooh would say - It was a very blustery day in the woods today! Despite the winds 291 people came out to join us in a very autumnal Clumber Park. This week our 23 volunteers were all members of Worksop Harriers Athletics Club, a big thank you to the club for supporting the event. Whether you're looking to start running, to run more or to improve your performance the Worksop Harriers have a group for you and information on joining can be found on their website.
Sam was delighted with being head of washing up in the hut.
Our first runner back today was Phillip NIND who also bagged himself a Worksop Halloween Half Marathon mug! here he is with Jack KIRK and Graeme FEE who were second and third back.
