Today 123 athletes took part in parkrun number 234 at Harrow Lodge. I like the numerical pattern that creates.
The weather was less August, more September but there was still enough blue sky to make a pair of sailor’s trousers as my old Granny used to say.
The café was busy with the terrace overlooking the lake full of parkrunners and volunteers. If you haven’t visited come and say hello to us there after the next parkrun. On that note there is NO PARKRUN at Harrow Lodge next Saturday (26th) due to the Havering Show. Please visit the Home page on the Harrow Lodge parkrun website to find a local alternative. There are 10 parkruns within 10 miles of Harrow Lodge.
Barry Smith was first over the line today for the 18th time. Well done to him!
17 of today’s parkrunners were first timers and 16 recorded new Personal Bests. Representatives of 8 different clubs took part.
The event was made possible by 13 volunteers (hurrah!):
Anthony MAPLESDEN • Jenni KULESZA • Melanie WILTSHIRE • David KEELEY • Neil TRUSLER • Keith PENFOLD • Sandra DOBIE • Mike DIVER • William CLISSOLD • Steve CIPA • Mei Lin EDWARDS • Rory BURR • Richard ROZEE
