Another busy Saturday for Graves this week with another top turnout of 327 people raring to run, jog, walk their way around Graves park. It was a mild morning but with the traditional Graves micro-climate of being 5 degrees colder than anywhere else…!
There were 38 first timers this week, 10 of these were doing their first ever parkrun. Well done to you all.

Stephen was RD for his second time this week and had organised for the Sheffield Goodgymers to hold a pacing event. There were pacers from 24 minutes to 40 minutes and also included some run / walk pacers. There was some really positive feedback from this event, plenty of people enjoying the inclusivity and a few PBs as a result. There have been requests for repeat events so watch this space!
There was a nice run of whooping and cheering for milestones this week. Congratulations to Emma MORGAN who ran her 10th parkrun; Robert ALLCROFT ran his 50th; Catherine SYKES ran her 100th and Leah EVANS ran her 250th parkrun! Congratulations to you all – fantastic achievements and thanks for the cakes!
Run Statistics – for those that like their numbers
There were 42 PBs this week. I wonder just how many were as a result of a pacer?! Well done all!
