We were delighted to welcome 205 runners, joggers & walkers to our beautiful park this week, 17 of whom completed our 5k for the very first time and for 4 of you it was your first ever parkrun. We also welcomed visitors from Kingston and Canterbury amongst others. Thank you everyone for joining us for a run in park with friends.
As usual we had a crack team of volunteers who made the parkrun magic happen.
Tim briefed our first timers and tourists, Ben, Ian Joanna and Tina marshalled the course, Geoff & Emily timed everyone around the 5k, Sandy & Phoebe expertly kept order in the funnel and handed you your position token, Aimee & Benjamin scanned your barcodes whilst Will manned the clipboard. Sally-Ann & Karen made sure everyone was accounted for as tail walkers and Caitlin guided Terry safely around. Cailin & Tim were joined by Abi in sorting the finish tokens at the café. SuperKev did the shouty bit at the start and then wandered around trying to look busy.
Check out our volunteer roster at https://www.parkrun.org.uk/colwick/futureroster/ and email us at email@example.com if you'd like to join us in the hi-vis. We have several spaces available for the remainder of February and also March so please do get in touch.
Several of our community celebrated milestone runs with us this week. Harry Sporton joined the junior 10 club, Robert Newton completed his 50th parkrun and Nick Hopewell joined the coveted 100 club. On his travels Des Oldham also joined the 50 club. Congratulations and well done all of you!
The PB bell also saw plenty of action this week as 28 of you set a new personal best time. Amazing!
We wrapped up the morning in the familiar, welcoming surroundings of the Daleside café where Rachael, Zoe and the Co served up lashings of bacon, eggs, tea and coffee.
Such a good morning we've decided we'll do it all again next week.
Your Colwick parkrun Event Team.
