This week 232 people ran, jogged and walked the course, of whom 22 were first timers and 19 recorded new Personal Bests. Which is amazing given the poor conditions.
Representatives of 15 different clubs took part. Including many from Rugby Tri-Club in memory of their member, Kate Vanloo, who also was a Daventry parkrunner and volunteer, sadly taken from us too soon. Thanks again for joining in the minutes round of applause in her memory.
The event was made possible by 25 fabulous volunteers:
Stella-Maria THOMAS • Christopher EDGE • Karen BALLOCH • Stephen BALL • David SHAW • Steve BROOKS • Phil BEAR • ** Ginette PILKINGTON ** • Samantha HOLMES • James BALLOCH • Kim MULLANEY • Paula KASBERGER • Katie BROUGHAM • David TARBUCK • Paul BARKER • David LORD • Anna HARRINGTON • Sakina LOVEJOY • Charlotte ROSE • John KEEP • Matthew BAINBOROUGH • Mark BROCKLEHURST • Izzy HARRINGTON • Mark PALMER • Amber GILSTON

Daventry parkrun started on 8th November 2014. Since then 4,585 participants have completed 32,197 parkruns covering a total distance of 160,985 km, including 6,147 new Personal Bests.
It was great to see so many smiling faces at the finish. It makes standing in the cold and wet very worthwhile.
See you next week,
