Well what a beautiful November morning at Kingsbury Water Parkrun.
Perfect conditions for running surrounded by the autumnal coloured leaves that were crisp enough to hear that lovely rustling sound when running over them.
So much happened at Parkrun this morning and I’m proud to be a part of this amazing event! Please forgive me if I missed anything!! (my first time doing the run report which earns me my Volunteering 25 Shirt!!!)
Parkrun was made possible by our marvellous volunteers:
Judy Parkes * Tim Gould * Matthew Green * Tricia Bunn * George Thould * Richard Hamblett * Sharon Whitehead * Vicky Jennings * Susan Thould * Susan Hann * Katherine Gould * Madeleine Gould * Anne-Marie Matthews * Owen Slater * Ann Hadley * Gale King * Vanessa Carter * William Phillips * Finlay Cross * Catherine Argyle * James Smith * Adam Cope *
Without volunteers parkrun would not be possible so a huge thank you to all of you!
This week 354 people ran, jogged and walked the course, of whom 34 were first timers and 86 recorded new Personal Bests!
Representatives of 22 different clubs took part.
Celebration day as Stuart Hatton joined the 100 club. That’s 500km of running.
Sharon Gray joins the 50 Club.
Also Taylor Williams not only gets a PB but joins the Junior 10 club before he is 6.
Then Myself Volunteered for the 25th Time.
Lets hope we are not waiting too long for our Tops so we can wear them with Pride.
