This week 405 people ran, jogged and walked the course, of whom 25 were first timers, we hope this will be just the start of your parkrun journey !
We tested our response to a medical emergency during the event, something I think you will all agree is a necessity. Thanks to Ryan Walker for planning this, Graham Clark for being our casualty, marshal Graham Hinder for reacting accordingly, RD Pam Hart for taking control, Chris Keep for cycling like billy-o with the defib, Danny McIntyre and Tim Reading for helping with the casualty and Louise Rice for sorting the gates. The defib it kept at the start and finish, it is very easy to use. Anyone interested in some training please contact us and we will plan a future session for parkrunners.
Next week is our 7th Birthday - the bunting will be out. Lets hope for a dry sunny day.
Now back to today’s event - I must mention the first 3 runners over the line today – all Juniors in the 15-17 age group. Well done to the super speedy Ethan Hunter, Evan Wilson and Charlie Moon. Flying the flag for the ladies were Emma Cooper, Alice MacLeod and Belinda Cramp.
63 personal bests today including Graham Wooley, Heather Long, Nikki Kindon, Marcus Berry, Abigail Reid, Florence Andrews, Emma Deasy and Ricky Warren.
