125 runners made the start line for the 88th running of Linwood parkrun, 20 of those were first timers, 9 of whom were completely new to parkrun. Hope you enjoyed our course and look forward to you returning in the future.
Despite the bitterly cold wind 23 of our runners achieved a PB, notable amongst the male runners were Brian McGinley, Sam McGrath, Paul Killen and family duo Riley and Gordon Black. For the females Lisa McDaid, Fiona Murray, Caitlin McCulloch and another family duo Heather & Ella Love, and one of our Run Director's Ruth Harrison all achieved the feat.
We also had two of our long time runners achieve their 50 milestone with us on Saturday with both Tom Goldie and junior Erin Adams qualifying for their red T-shirt. Erin's grandpa said it had cost her a lot of sweat and tears to get there but had cost him 36 rolls and sausage, 14 rolls and bacon and 50 cans of Coke. Congratulations to you both from Linwood parkrun. If you are approaching a milestone please drop us an email in advance or speak to us prior to the brief so we can acknowledge your achievement.
Huge thank you as always go to our hi-viz volunteers who braved the cold on Saturday to ensure your safety. The reason we constantly ask for Volunteers each week was highlighted on Saturday when one of our runners took ill on Saturday but our Marshal sprung into action and the situation was resolved quickly and the runner eventually finished the course. Thank you also goes to the two runners who stopped to provide medical assistance.
As stated last week Renfrewshire Leisure have asked that we park in our designated area of the car park adjacent to the Woodlands Bowling Club, they have been very supportive of our run from the outset and we'd be grateful if you could follow their request.

Enjoy the rest of your week and look forward to seeing you all next week. #DFYB
