Event number 393
13th October 2018
A blustery day, strong enough to make it hard to hear the briefing, was not enough to stop the many hardy souls at Leamington parkrun today. The sheer friendliness of parkrun is such a delight and inspiration to me.
People cheering each other on, friends shaking hands, volunteers smiling, runners helping each other when falling over, talking to people you only know through parkrun, Strava chat and so much more. All of these things make this a great and inspiring start to every Saturday.
It’s also such an inspiration that 30 volunteers at Leamington help make this such a special event every week. There cannot be many events run weekly in our county that attract 30 volunteers, time in time out.
I am sure I speak for all runners when I say thank you to all volunteers, and they in turn will say congratulations to all who participated today. Everyone is an inspiration! Whether you came first or were with the Tail Walker I offer you my congratulations!
Enjoy the stats below, see you next week at Leamington!
