Event #92 Saturday July 14th 2018

Is there any way to get over the misery of a world cup defeat well 104 people decided that Homewood's 92nd event might just ease the pain a little. It saw tourists from as far afield as Edinburgh and three generations of the Forster family from Moors Valley parkrun who joined us to run, walk and jog the course.

Homewood 14 July

The extremely warm weather continued but it didn't stop 17 parkrunners from recording personal bests ! How did they do that?!

Let's hope that the 21 first timers come back soon to once again tackle Achilles Hill.

Celebrating reaching 50 parkruns and 50 volunteering occasions today with cakes and a poem...

20180707_094433

A sunny Saturday morning
Surrey in July
My 50th park run waits for me
With 156 fellow runners looking spry

Ottershaw looks glorious
Come rain or come shine
Everyone’s pushing
To cross the line

Some sprint off the start
PBs in their sights
Some Walk at the back
In bright patterned tights

But everyone tries
We’re all of us heros
‘Cause it’s better to run
Than just sit doing zero

Trees in full leaf
Give much needed cover
And some can’t resist
The temptation to hover

But that’s the great thing
About parkruns you know
We all push each other
From the snail to the pro

Yet another successful
Saturday morning
Runners and volunteers
All share a big grin

Our dear Dee and Steve
Head the Hi-vis brigade
Swooping in swiftly
With smiles, claps and aide

Of course what they need after
Is a large glass of wine
Once the whole things all over
And everyone’s fine

I couldn’t be prouder
Than I am on this day
And I could never spend my mornings
In a better way
