Our Volunteer rota is looking pretty healthy for this weekend, but we are still looking for a handful of willing Marshals to ensure' the event can go ahead.
If you're interested then please drop us an e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org with your barcode.
In return you'll have the thanks of your Run Director and all the runners as well as a chance to rock one of our exclusive high viz vests.
What more could you ask for?
The weather was kind to us and we had almost perfect conditions for running today.
198 people ran, jogged and walked the course today. We had 7 first timers at parkrun – welcome to parkrun, hope you enjoyed and we see you again. And we had 19 folks who had been to parkrun before but were at Kirkcaldy for the first time. Hope you enjoyed our course and that we see you again too.
There were an amazing 41 Personal Best times recorded today – well done each and every one of you!
As you all know the event can’t happen without the volunteers and we had seventeen of them today rocking the Hi-Viz gear within the park. A big thank you to each and every one of you, your assistance really is appreciated by all at Kirkcaldy parkrun.
The volunteer roster looks a bit bare for the next few weeks so please help out if you can, no job is difficult and you will get the plaudits for helping our event to happen. If you haven't ever volunteered before or not done so for a while why not try it and experience parkrun from a different perspective. If you don't enjoy it you can run for free the following week!
The volunteers today were: Irene MILLER • Tricia WALLACE • Clifford DICKER • Andrew AIRD • Sharon SUTHERLAND • Fiona THORNTON • Isabella CARMICHAEL • Laura GODDING • Gillian NOTMAN • Christina CRICHTON • Rona INGLIS • John DRYBURGH • John BRENNAN • Christine SIMPSON • James PATERSON • Karen HUNTER • Kevin O'NEILL
We had a couple of milestones called out before the start – 7 year old Morag Cotton completing her 10th parkrun and Eve Hutchison completing her 50th. Alan Fraser also completed his 50th as well but kept it quiet so didn’t get a shout out at the start – well done to all three of you.
The full results and a complete event history can be found on the Kirkcaldy parkrun Results Page.
Interesting stat – since we started in 2015 we have now had 3,811 participants complete Kirkcaldy parkrun – will you be the 4000th finisher next week?
The roster is looking good for Saturday with all the key positions covered.
It would be great to have a few more volunteers to make sure things go as smooth as possible and it's always fun to have plenty marshalls out on the course
