Wow, what a fantastic turnout at this week’s parkrun; 183 participants, 56 of them being first timers!
A big shout out to the 24 ladies who have been training with New Waves over the past 12 weeks building up from walking to running, and those doing Couch to 5k, including Lynne Wood who has been following the online app programme and visitor Angela Monaghan from Brighouse parkrun whose daughter Alice wrote in to say how proud she is of her Mum! Great work everyone, you all did fantastically well!

We were lucky to have a number of visitors with us enjoying the fabulous weather, including several brave folk over for the Guernsey Ultra (#GU36) which was taking place on Sunday.
A massive well done to everyone who completed the course, the weather was definitely on our side, hopefully it wasn't too hot out there for you. This supporter had the right idea as he settled down to wait for the finishers!
Our first finisher, Chris Molloy, of Cambridge and Coleridge AC came in at an impressive 18.21mins. With the first female back, Summer Woodhead (JM 11-14), claiming 7th position in 20.27mins.
Alongside our quite inspiring number of first timers and 26 new PB's, we also had a milestone this week with James Wilson (JM10) celebrating his 10th run, well done James. We hope to see you in your white milestone T shirt soon!
Just a quick word from me, I would like to thank everyone for your support and kind words on Saturday as my first time being Run Director, I am very grateful. The team of volunteers were awesome and I am now one step closer to that Gold D of E award! I can highly recommend parkrun as a fabulous option for a fun volunteering experience for those thinking of doing Duke of Edinburgh awards.
