Event 397 – 9th February 2019

Colwick lake resembled the North Sea. The wind turbine spun so fast it was close to flying off. Our Ikea bags and anything not nailed down flew off.

Well done to the hardy 235 parkrunners who braved the 50 mph winds. Special thanks to our 24 hi-viz heroes who stood stern not only to set up the course, but  ensured your safety by clearing fallen branches.

Terry welcomed 41 first timers and tourists from London. Your fabulous marshals Jo, Helen, Richard and Peter cleared the paths and ensured your safety. Grace and Olivia cheerfully timed you in. Jacques and Kevin kept you in order and handed your position token. Finlay, Clare, Josh and Neil scanned your tokens. Abigail and Tim guided Iris and Terry safely. Lydia, Erica, Libby, Thomas and Tracey ensured everyone got round safely. Andrew expertly snapped you at the finish.

parkrun wouldn't be complete without a cob and mug of tea at Daleside. Thanks to Laura, Philip, Thomas and Tracey our tokens are sorted ready for next week.
