Colchester Castle parkrun
Event number 284
8th September 2018
This week 333 people ran, jogged and walked the course, of whom 24 were first timers and 55 recorded new Personal Bests. Representatives of 32 different clubs took part.
Thankyou to all 333 of you who took part this morning and the 36 volunteers who contributed to what turned out to be an action packed but fun occasion. The marshals reported back that everyone was very cheery out on the course, which was great to hear, and it seems that the pre-run briefing asking for a bit more old-fashioned parkrun spirit and kindness towards your fellow runners did the trick.
A few of you might of noticed the “high” numbers on the finishing tokens, this was due to a few being dropped. Although I don’t like to single out volunteers a big round of applause goes to Trevor and Julie Gilby, dishing out the tokens, who handled a tricky situation brilliantly and ensured everyone got their results they deserved. Also thanks to all you runners who showed great patience as we worked through everybody in the finish funnel. It goes to show that a bit of teamwork goes a long way.
