Event number 189
13th October 2018
Today was a soggy parkrun to say the least!! Despite the weather,this week 104 people ran, jogged and walked the course, of whom 8 were first timers and 10 recorded new Personal Bests. Representatives of 13 different clubs took part. Big shoutout to all who reached a milestone today, especially one of our own Run Directors Andrew Aird, who ran his 200th parkrun today. Although not an official milestone still a huge achievement.
The event was made possible by 19 volunteers:
Clifford DICKER • Andrew AIRD • John MCKEAN • Jim DUNSTAN • Shaun SUTHERLAND • Sharon SUTHERLAND • Claire DOAK • Moyra DE SOYZA • Fiona THORNTON • Paul SUTHERLAND • George MACDONALD • John DRYBURGH • Bryan MARTIN • Keith TRAILL • Rolf GÜNNEMANN • Kevin O'NEILL • Sarah DEIGHAN • Steven MCKENZIE • Hugh BRITTEN
A massive thank you to each and every one of them for standing in the rain to enable the parkrun to go ahead. Parkrun can only happen if we have enough volunteers every week, so if you are injured or planning a rest before a big event then drop us an email and we will definitely be able to find you a role in high vis.
As announced at the start brief, 27th October will be our Halloween celebration. Please feel free to come along dressed in costume and help us celebrate. That weekend is also a coffee morning in the Rugby club, so we could all descend upon them after parkrun in our costumes!!!!
Hopefully we will see you all (bring your friends!!!!) next week, but minus the rain!
