Well done to the 226 fantastic runners who completed King’s Lynn parkrun’s 286th run. A special mention has to go to our 13 first timers, an impressive effort to complete your first run on such a cold and miserable morning! A big welcome too to all of our visitors, Charles and Sabine Green and Ian J Berry-Bowes especially who are regular parkrun tourists but on their first visit to King’s Lynn, we hope to see you back with us in the future!
Despite the conditions, runners clocked up 35 new PBs this weekend! Too many to mention individually, but those who have now achieved 2 or more PBs in a row were Neil Bussey (2), Mary Cook (4), David Dimech (3), Dale Etheridge (3), Michelle Mountain (2), Karen Smith (5!), Jeanette Stapleton (2) and Chris Williamson (5!). Will any of them make it to the repeat PB list again next week?
Congratulations to our two runners celebrating milestone runs yesterday, Peter Bloom completing his 50th run and Alan Dix achieving 100 parkruns!
Thank you, as always, to the brilliant volunteers that make our event go ahead each week. It was not nice standing around in the cold yesterday so thank you for your dedication, I’m sure I speak for everyone when I say how grateful we are for your support.
Fingers crossed we’ll have the café back up and running next week, I hope to see you all there!
P.S. Each week I will have a noticeboard entitled ‘Please put this in the run report…’ stuck on to the outside of the café near to where we put the bags. This is for anyone who has anything for me to put in the report to write on (there are whiteboard pens attached) so that even if you can’t catch me to tell me in person (hopefully I’ll be back running again soon!) then I don’t miss anything important.
