It was a fresh morning at Colchester Castle park this morning, but that wasn't enough to put off 252 people who turned up and ran, jogged and walked the course. We had 10 brave souls who were first timers and 30 powerhouses who went out there today and recorded new Personal Bests.
A special mention to Daphne Clark in the 80-84 age category who recorded a PB today! Also to Hilary Powell and Shelley Spencer who both achieved their 50th parkrun. Well done to Georgina Grayston who hit 150 today - brilliant!
Our first finisher today was Barry Stoddart in a time of 18:08, closely followed by Fergus Crouch in 18:17 and Aaron Graves in 18:29.
First female finisher was Laura Shewbridge 19:47. Amy Dove (21:56) was second female finisher and third female finisher was Jordi Moat in 22:12.
We struggle every week to get volunteers, make it your aim to volunteer. Some volunteer posts you can do and run in the same event like pre-event set-up and post event close down. We simply cannot hold the event with our fantastic volunteers, so in the coming weeks put yourself forward and give it a try.

Eric SHAW • Sue WRAY • James RUSSELL • Mark HOY • Simon FORD • Malkiat SINGH • Jason GUNN • Dave REDMAN • Paul NEVILLE • Shelley SPENCER • Paul HART • Aine MCNULTY • Jane MCNULTY • Helen BOYD • Daniel WHYMARK • Niamh MCNULTY • Mandy NEWMAN • Edward CAMPBELL • Wing UNG • Katie DOVE • Katie WHYMARK • Yvonne SCOTT • Joanne WEBB • David MERRIDAY • Joanne LEWIS • Kayleigh SCOTT • Maria TAYLOR • Anna GOLUBOVIC
