282 lovely people turned out this morning for their weekly dose of parkrun, running and walking their way around Hinchingbrooke country park for the 283rd edition of Huntingdon parkrun! We’ve now covered 326,845km with todays run taking us past an amazing 8 laps around the world!
Clearly plenty of you had your Weetabix (other cereals are available) this morning as an astonishing 32 claimed new Personal Best’s, incredible running and well done all!
Its always great to welcome tourists at parkrun, and we have clearly gone global as we were lucky enough to have tourists from Virginia (America) and West Beach (South Australia), hopefully you have a great trip and if this is the only parkrun you manage, don’t worry you’ve picked the best! We also had 7 of you completing your first ever parkrun, welcome to the family, hopefully we haven’t scared you off too much and we look forward to seeing you again soon.
Congratulations to Martin Wren on completing his 200th parkrun, although not an ‘official milestone’ that’s an awful lot of early starts and a very commendable achievement.
The real heroes of parkrun however are the hi-vis heroes, especially now that it’s getting a little bit colder, the volunteer roster is looking a bit quiet for the upcoming weeks, and we would be extremely grateful for a hand.
We also had the news this week that Huntingdon will have Christmas and New Years Day parkruns, that gives an opportunity to complete 5 parkruns in the 10 days between the 22nd of December and the 1st of January – who’s going for the full house?
