Yet another gorgeous morning in the forest today – just how we like it!
A visit by the youngsters from Vale Royal AC made things interesting at the sharp end with Cameron Weaver (who really needs to update his club details!) and Holly Weedall recording the fastest times of the year so far.
There was a shout out for Eva Price, celebrating her 11th birthday and rounding off the morning with a PB - happy birthday and well done!
Keeping quiet at the start was Jeff Broadhurst who completed his 100th parkrun today – congratulations!!
Also congratulations to Aaron Doyle and Daisy McNally who earned their 10 shirts.
We were honoured by the presence of some highly experienced London tourists – Stuart Lodge (only 15 off his 500!) and Nicola Whitby from Bushy, plus Laurence Messer and Neville Simpson from Gunnersbury.
Plus great to welcome visitors from Birkenhead, Bracknell, Burgess (London), Cannon Hill (Birmingham), Cheltenham, Chester, Congleton, Croxteth Hall, Edinburgh, Forest Rec (Nottingham), Nostell (Wakefield), Princes, Shrewsbury (inc. Chris Clarke!), Warrington, Watergrove (Rochdale), Wilmslow and Wythenshawe.
A couple of announcements:
Should anyone need it – there is always a first-aid kit available by the start-finish tree.
Plus remember – there is a 15mph speed limit on the approach road. Please respect local residents and other forest users by keeping to it. If you feel the need for speed – save it for the parkrun!!
See you all next week.
