Congratulations to Sally Brough who joins the 50 Club, all 50 runs done at Delamere.

Belated congratulations to another Delamere regular Geoff Fawkes who joined the 100 Club last week whilst doing a bit of parkrun tourism at Chippenham. This is the next milestone in his bid to earn his 250 shirt before his 50th birthday – with 3 and a bit years to go he can’t afford to miss many!

Congratulations to the members of Delamere Outdoor Fitness doing their Couch-to-5K graduation today – well done all, it’s a fantastic achievement!

This week we were honoured by the presence of serial tourists Chris & Liz Jones from Woodhouse Moor Leeds, plus Stuart and William Gordon from Blackhill Co Durham. Between them they have clocked up an awesome total of 1,240 parkruns!!
Also welcome to the Wynn family, visiting Delamere for the first time from their usual run at Maribyrnong, Melbourne Australia!

Once again the forecast rain stayed away for this morning's parkrun, although some of us would have welcomed a refreshing shower as conditions were a little bit warm.

A round of applause went up for core team member Mark Flanagan, who as well as doing well over 200 volunteering stints also manages to slip in the odd parkrun, and today was celebrating his 50th - congratulations!
Also congratulations to Ann Collier who completed her 200th parkrun. Ann has been Delamere's most prolific female runner, being present at the very first event and doing all but 5 of her parkruns here.

Welcome to the parkrun tourists visiting Delamere today - this week including runners from Congleton, Crosby, Croydon, Edinburgh, Greenwich, Hanley, King's Lynn, Medway, Orpington, Pennington Flash, Royston, Warrington, Wepre & Widnes.

Massive thanks again to our wonderful volunteers.
This week a special mention to Charlie and Denzel (brother David's golden retriever) who are regularly seen marshalling at the top of the hill.
Sadly Denzel passed away last week. He will be missed by many, but always remembered - so please give Charlie a special 'thank you' next time you pass him.

Run Report – Event No. 216 8th July 2017

.

It was good to be back at Delamere today after a week's break. An ideal opportunity for a spot of parkrun tourism for the Delamere regulars.

Today it was our turn to welcome an eager group of tourists, this time representing such far-flung locations as Birkenhead, Birmingham, Chester, Conwy, Cumbria, Hanley, Hereford, Hull, Runcorn, Stretford, Warrington, Widnes & York!

Two former Delamere regulars (and former winners of the now defunct Points Competition) made the news today:
Nathan Williams back for the summer from studying at Bristol University was first finisher (for the 3rd time). Nathan was the points winner in 2016 (but only just!).
Charlotte Walker was the latest and last female points winner, but is more recently seen at the newly started Phoenix parkrun in Runcorn. However she came back to Delamere today to complete her 100th parkrun - congratulations!

Also congratulations to Stephen Stamper also completing his 100th, Charlotte Casson on her 50th, and Lilly Cheesman completing her 10th run.

Lots more running opportunities this weekend at the Northwich Festival of Running, including 2K, 5K & 10K runs.
Starting tomorrow, Sunday 9th, at 9:00am. Entries are available on the day.
