It was lovely to return to Colwick Country park after a week off along with 277 parkrunners and 17 wonderful volunteers.
Our beloved Roy was under the weather this week. These are big boots to fill and it took 6 legs to fill them! Thanks to Katy and Scampi (or 'not Roy' as she was christened by passing parkrunners!) for manning the split. Quote of the day from the field - 'the Oil of Olay' is working Roy'. Get well soon Roy.
We had plenty of milestones to celebrate this weekend. 50 T's earned by Helen Walsh and Steff Elliott along with Clare Lane, Laura Clark and Tracey Moore (below).
Well done also to Philippa for adding a 50 T to her volunteer T-shirt.
We also had a 250 to celebrate with Angela (and of course cake and goodies!). Brilliant achievements all of you - well done!
Well done also to not one but two couch to 5k graduation groups. The Purple Power of Notts Woman Runners were out in force.
as were the wonderfully yellow Rebel Runners..
Post event we had an enquiry into HQ as to whether parkrun was open to walkers... well of course it is open (and free) to EVERYONE. We know this as we have been in and around it for some time now and are proud of the wide ranging participation we see at Colwick .... but the query serves as a good reminder that not everyone does so we should all keep spreading the the word and the parkrun love...…
We leave you with a caption competition this week..... just what were our most experienced time keeping duo discussing in great depth between finishers.. politics? world cup tips? 7th birthday plans for next week (hint hint) or … (my guess) what to have in the omelette at the Daleside?!
