Hazelwood (Santa) parkrun event 41

The build up to Christmas is always a special time and when we announced that the 22nd December event was to be a Santa run, little did we realise how many people would support the event by dressing up in festive gear to celebrate the day. We had many Santas, several elves and a running turkey! Thanks to everybody that entered the spirit of the occasion.

With so many participants in fancy dress, it was the participation rather than the time of completion that was of greater importance. However we are sure the Christmas music accompanying the runners, together with the mulled wine greeting the athletes at the finish line knocked a few seconds of several times.

Taking part this week were 134 people that ran, jogged or walked the course, of whom 23 were first timers and 9 recorded new Personal Bests. Representatives of 14 different clubs took part from afar a field as Telford. We welcomed 10 athletes to parkrun for the first time and we are delighted they chose Hazelwood for their inaugural events. We hope to see them again soon. Congratulations also to Helen Christmas who celebrated her 50th run.

Although on such a day, all the participants were winners the first male finisher was Tim Bartholomew of 26.2 RRC in a time of 18:42, and the first female finisher was Lin Lascelles of Maiden Newton Runners in a time of 22:15, who also achieved the best age grade result of 79.25%. Well done to both.

As always, huge cheers to our volunteers that allow the event to take place. This week, we thank:

Nicola LOVEGROVE • Charlie CAREY • Andrea CAVALHEIRO • David ALLEN • John MAXEN • Rohan KOTHARY • Phil WIGGLESWORTH • Claire MEDLEY • Lucy GORVIN • Mathilde RIOU • Maxine SELLS • Uday PATEL • Kelly KOTHARY • Maria HARRISON • David PLASTOW
