Event 225 (94)

Two BIG milestones this week with Lesley Clark completing her 150th parkrun. Wow!!! Well done Lesley, it's a shame that there isn't a t-shirt but at least you got the banner! Love the picture. Graeme Crawford (our DAD) is our other milestone this week with 50 parkrun's now. All week he has been begging us not to have any balloons or cake for him so of course we did the opposite and had both. Tough luck Dad!!! Oh and you still haven't beat Cameron's PB...maybe within the next 50.

Event 225 (95)

Event 223 (118)

Our Event Director Jo McGrattan reached the impressive 150 parkrun milestone this week...that's almost 3 years worth of Saturday morning running! For Jo it all started at Pollock parkrun in June 2010, back when it was called Glasgow parkrun. Not a fan of the early start to get there in time for dad Graham to get his warm up in each week, she started looking into the possibility of bringing parkrun to Greenock. Graham was certain that it could, and should be done and before she knew it, Greenock parkrun had become Jo's mission. After months of chasing funding and getting all the required boxes ticked, Jo finally got a longer lie on a Saturday when Greenock parkrun started in May 2014. It hasn't stopped her doing tourism though, with parkruns throughout the UK and three in Australia adding to her total of 150. Well done Jo!

We have some gaps in our roster for this Saturday coming. Check out out future roster page and drop us an email if you can help out!
