Conditions this morning for the run were good at the start although the rain did come on later and we got a little damp we had a report of a tree down across the path late last night but a course inspection armed with a saw early this morning soon had the course clear an thankfully the winds of recent days had subsided.
Today we had 108 people running,jogging and walking the course of whom 10 were first timers,28 recorded new PB's and 14 different clubs were represented.We had 2 people visiting from near Swansea in Wales and also 1 from Edinburgh.Sioned one of our Welsh visitors finished 3rd overall and recorded our second fastest female time for the course so huge congratulations to her.
Today we also trialled pacers for the first time at 25,30,35 and 40 mins,thanks to Alex,Steven,Ann and Stuart for being our guinea pigs for this,we may need a few more attempts before we decide if it will be a worthwhile addition to our volunteer roster,initial thoughts were that we would try it once a month.
Volunteer roster is looking quite healthy for the next few weeks but there are still some odd spaces to fill so please e-mail us if you would like to assist with any of these.
Thanks to this weeks volunteers
