Bobble hat weather is definitely closing in on us, there was a chill in the air for event 325. That didn't stop 303 of you joining us this week for a run, jog or walk around Colwick Park.
We celebrated a few milestones. Tony Madge did his 50th run (and bagged a new PB and the top age grade %!).
Congratulations to Harry Cramp and Sarah Croydon-Fowler who also ran their 50th parkruns today.
Stuart Robinson (aka Son of Robbo) ran his 100th parkrun with a supporting cast of family and friends.
There were 48 PBs. Good to see you making the most of the dry-ish weather. The rain, and shoesucker straight will no doubt make an appearance as autumn progresses!
We welcomed a sea of yellow as the latest group of Rebel Runners couch to 5k graduates did their first parkrun. We hope to see you again soon!
All of this fabulous running, jogging and walking took place courtesy of our hi-vis heroes, and we had a bumper crop this week.
Helen, Finners, Jacqui, Jason, Evie, and Roy were your clapping and cheering marshals.
Tim and Sandy timed you over the line.
Anton managed the funnel and Angela gave you your finish token. Angela also joined the 25 volunteer club - well done Angela!
Steve, Matt and Alison scanned your barcodes and Megan helped on the bucket.
Dawn did a sterling job on the clipboard - it was a busy day for barcodes that had decided they didn't want to be scanned.
Iain, Philippa and James were your tail walkers, making sure you all got back safely.
Terry gave the first timers briefing aided by his glamorous assistant Arry. Arry then guided Terry round the course.
Conrad guided Iris.
We'll leave you this week with a small ditty - 'it's a run not a race, there's always time to tie your lace!'
Your Colwick parkrun team
