Today’s contingent of 278 runners were rewarded with perfect running conditions at Delamere this morning. The recent rain has softened the ground but not enough to cause any muddy areas on the course.
Congratulations go to Delamere stalwarts Zoe Dixon and Elaine Dawson who both ran their 50th parkruns today and also to Anthony Dunn who reached the impressive milestone of 250 (173 of these at Delamere).
In other news, well done to regular Delamere attendees David Twiss and Amy Farrington who last week ran the Great North Run and were raising money for the mental health charity Mind. David finished with a time of 1 hour 56 and Amy 2 hours 27.

Finally, we are always on the lookout for more volunteers to help with the organisation of Delamere parkrun. If you know any teenagers who are starting Duke of Edinburgh award programmes then it worth being aware that helping at parkrun is an approved activity for the volunteering part of the award. We have had a number of D of E people helping in the past few years as it is a great way to give something back to the community and is a big help to our race directors when they are trying to fill the weekly volunteer roster.
This week 278 people ran, jogged and walked the course, of whom 38 were first timers and 34 recorded new Personal Bests. Representatives of 29 different clubs took part.
The event was made possible by 17 volunteers:
Seb Roberts - Laurence RUDKIN • Mark David BOWDEN • Mark FLANAGAN • Mike GEARY • Richard HILL • Nicola RUDD • Claire MORTON • Sam WASHINGTON • Elizabeth CHANTLER • Jeff BROADHURST • Joanna CASE • Charles TWISS • Rebecca BROADHURST • Lesley BOOL • Dawn APPLETON • Amanda BROWN
