Highbury Fields 13th January 2018
On a cold January morning, Highbury Fields parkrun experienced its largest ever turnout of an impressive 367 people running, jogging and walking - almost 50 more than the previous record of 326 – bringing 43 personal bests as well as 61 first timers. Along with these great numbers, special congratulations go to Jadon for setting a record time for the 11-14 JM age group with 18:05 as well as Luke Franklin and Alexander Tsirigotis for completing their 50th parkrun. David Taylor was first finisher with a very respectable time of 16:54.
It was incredible to witness runners stretching half of the course throughout the run, but also great to see so many new faces, which will hopefully join us again soon!
A special mention to the volunteers who managed to keep the finishing funnel orderly in the surge of 22-28 minute runners, as well as the great work of both the Finish Token and Finish Token support volunteers for staying resilient when faced with a surge in numbers and such low temperatures.
The volunteers who made this week were:
Martin BLACK, Richard CRAWFORD, Lauren GRAHAM, Leo HANSON, Ted HISLOP, Neil HOSKEN, Yannick HUNTER-THIELEMANN, Miranda MARKHAM, Andrew MCGEARY, Richard MURPHY, David NELSON, Mia OYESIKU, Conny OYESIKU, Chris D PEACOCK, Edward PUDDINGTON, John ROBACK, Felix SAMUELS and Clare WASSMER
Enjoy the rest of your week.
p.s. nice to see that Clive Tulloh was there in Saturday. Clive's father is the legendary Bruch Tulloh
