As mentioned on our Facebook page, we had another great turnout today considering how many other events are going on over the weekend.
Incuding the Christleton 5K last night, the National Masters Road Relays at Sutton Park, Birmingham today (in fact I could almost imagine I was there instead of Delamere!), and the Chester Half Marathon coming up tomorrow.
Well done / good luck to all those taking part in these, especially those who doubled (tripled?) up, and even slipped in a sneaky parkrun!
Congratulations to one of Delamere parkrun's founding fathers, Mark Bowden who's celebrating his birthday today!!
It's going to be another busy week at the Tribesport shirt factory. We have father and son Matthew and Henry Drake earning their 100 & 10 shirts, a 100 shirt for James Simpson (2nd finisher), 50 for Michael Shaw, and 10 for Harry Fountain.
Well done to all of you!
Big welcome as ever to all our parkrun tourists today, including first time visitors from Bedford, Bolton, Congleton, Colby, Corby, Witton & Wythenshawe.
Huge thanks again to this weeks volunteers for making it all possible, and see you all next week!
