A pretty soggy parkrun!

Kirkcaldy parkrun
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!

Thanks Sharon

Run Report – Event #186 Saturday 22nd September

It was on the brisk side this morning with temperatures under 10 degrees, but that didn't stop 141 people who turned up to walk, jog or run Kirkcaldy parkrun. We hope everyone had a great run! There were plenty of smiles coming across the finish line!

Derek Rae was pushing hard today finishing with a PB of 15:46, edging towards Run Director Ben Hukins course record of 15:44. Well done Derek!

Well done also to the 27 other participants who also got a PB this morning and to our 10 First Timers who tried out Kirkcaldy parkrun today.

The results are up on the website for you to see here

The event today was put together with 25 amazing volunteers, some were there from 08:30 and many were around for event-close down and result processing. parkrun does need its volunteers, so please consider reviewing all our information on volunteering here

Over the last few weeks, we've collected a fair bit of clothing. Can you have a look at our FB post where we've got some photos of the gear

Lastly, we mentioned briefly at the start line,  the donation process to help fund some of the extra bits and pieces that we need to replace such as cones, dimples, signs and trolleys. You can find everything you need to donate here.

Thanks again, and we'll do it all again next week
