Run Report – Event No. 210 20th May 2017

 

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!

Run Report – Event No. 208 6th May 2017

The weather may have been dull but at least it stayed dry, and there was certainly nothing dull about the 261 happy faces running through the forest this morning!

It was one of those weeks where we struggled to find volunteers - but we made it!
So huge thanks to all those who stepped up.
Especially those who do it week after week, but we also always welcome new volunteers - even if you do it only once it's a great help, helping us ensure the event can continue.

Congratulations to Mike Geary and Neil Kirby who joined the 50 club today - also finishing within 3 seconds of each other in 99th and 100th place (coincidence?)

And massive congratulations to Kate Williamson from Eynsham Road Runners Oxford, who has just broken the Age Grade course record with an impressive score of 90.47%!!
This record has been previously held by Rosemary Rogers who set the bar at 89.34% back at the 7th Delamere parkrun in April 2013!
