It was another glorious morning in Clumber for our weekly parkrun and here's a photo of two firsts. Josh SAMBROOK called in at Clumber Park on his journey north and was the first finisher in a time of 17:12. Volunteering for the first time as a barcode scanner, Lynda HAYES did a great job of recording all the necessary data.
Regular parkrunner from Lincoln, Claire COONEY was the first female today in a time of 19:41, making her second visit to Clumber.
Yet another first this morning was a first visit to Clumber Park by Richard CHESHIRE from Newcastle, who was the first person (I think) to complete our route in a self-propelled wheelchair. What with the heat, a woodland section and a hill to negotiate, that's a great result.
All the finish tokens were returned today - we even received one which went missing a few weeks ago! Well done to Laura CARR for 'supervising' the young team of token sorters this morning, your job didn't look at all stressful!!
There are lots of gaps on the roster for the next few weeks, so please consider doing your bit and offering to help, particularly if you regularly enjoy your parkrun, but haven't seen how it happens 'from the other side'. You can check out the future rosters and find the email link here. A big thank you to the 24 volunteers who helped out today - the 335 runners, joggers wheelchairs and walkers simply couldn't have done it without you. Also well done to new Club Members today as Alex STEPHENS and Freya JONES joined the 10 Club.
From a safety point of view, please be mindful to keep dogs on a short lead, take special care when running with a buggy and remember that bicycles, balance bikes, hand cycles and scooters are not allowed to accompany runners taking part in parkrun.
Lots more data for you to enjoy:-
