The weather again managed to provide a bit of a challenge this week, but thankfully because it was the warmest of the year so far! It didn’t stop 35 of you from getting a personal best or Andrew Van Kints from putting in an absolutely fantastic run, not only as our first finisher but also coming very close to beating the course record, .
Second place went to George Kingsley, from Birmingham who was on his second visit to parkrun here in Guernsey. Well done to Julie Lawlor, who has held the age graded course record since September 2017 and improved this record again this week.
Congratulations to David Reed, who joins the 50 club this week, well done David and we hope to see you in your milestone t-shirt in the future.
Meanwhile regular runner and volunteer Ray Scholes was doing a bit of parkrun tourism, visiting Mersea Island parkrun, and also celebrating his 50 milestone, congratulations Ray.
My thanks to all the volunteers, who helped out this week, we really couldn’t put parkrun on every week without you. Rebekah Johnston deserves a special mention, not only was it her first week at parkrun, but she managed to scan everyone’s barcodes on her own as we were a bit thin on the ground this week. Fantastic job Rebekah.
Our rota is looking very bare over the next few weeks, so if you are able to volunteer, please send us an email or come and have a chat on Saturday at parkrun or even afterwards over coffee!
