Flatts Lane parkrun
Event number 62
15th December 2018
Brrr! It was a a chilly one this morning, but the course was in great form, looking as pretty as ever in the winter sunshine, and the woods were very peaceful, although that was prior to Storm Deirdre arriving!
This week 34 people ran, jogged and walked the course, of whom 7 were first timers and 5 recorded new Personal Bests. Representatives of 9 different clubs took part. We had visitors from other local parkrunners, as well as a lady from Herefordshire - and despite some apprehension about our notoriously challenging upwardly flat section i.e. Godfalter Hill, all finished with smiles on their faces and gave glowing reviews of the course and the marshal support.
The event was made possible by 13 fantastic high viz hero volunteers, and our thanks this week go to:
Sharon CADDELL • Erin JOHNSON CADDELL • Andy JOHNSON71 • Angela WOOD. • Donovan JOHNSON CADDELL • Stephen MOTSON • Liz SWAINSTON •(the noisy one at the top of Godfalter Hill ) Jen MILSOM • Sue WALLIS • Lisa SHACKLETON • Nigel BRIGGS • Jon ZIGMOND • Heather CLYBURN
I need volunteers for next week, and early offers of help would be much much appreciated, and will definitely make my last working week a bit less stressful! If you can help with scanning, timing, tokens, marshalling, set up, close down etc...please add a comment in the box below, or email me at email@example.com.
Next week is our Santa Run, and will be the usual normal parkrun but if you want to add a festive twist to your running garb for the morning, we're encouraging runners to come along dressed up in a Christmas outfits - Santa hats and/or costumes, Frosty the Snowmans, Christmas puddings, Elves, Rudolphs...you get the picture! It's usually a lovely morning, and I may even bring some goodies and gingerbread biscuits along too
