On our 7th birthday, 419 people ran, jogged and walked the course, of whom 58 were first timers and 48 recorded new Personal Bests. Representatives of 25 different clubs took part. David White achieved his 100th parkrun.
To mark our birthday, we held a prize giving to celebrate some of our most impressive and generous HH parkrunners over the last year:
Star volunteers were:
- David Levey, guardian of Levey Corner by the model boating pond, marshalled 38x in the last 12 months
- Victoria Eze, our doctor-on-call who still managed to volunteer 32x and has achieved an age grade of over 70%
- Libby Makinson, volunteered 22x covering practically all roles over the year, including RD. She was absent on Saturday for her first marathon but did fly the HH flag at Faelledparken, Copenhagen parkrun
[Most prizes collected were by Philippa Levey, David's wife, who picked up the awards for David and Libby.]
Buzzing busy bee allrounder - Clare McVey, volunteered 15x, ran 36x and was highest age grade scorer on Saturday with 77.5% for her 24'00"
Most inspiring parkrunners epitomising the HHpr spirit were:
- Nick Harding - our VM80-84 stalwart who likes to volunteer when it's route B
- Handley Stevens - our VM75-79 record holder with 25'20" who was volunteering the week before.
