It was a very memorable 3rd anniversary for Maidenhead parkrun today, with over 300 runners completing the course in cold and snowy conditions.
To add to the fun today’s Parkrun was a Nurkrap with everyone tackling the course in reverse. This meant that those extra special and all-important parkrun volunteers had to take extra care marshalling everyone in reverse and making sure no-one took a wrong turn. As always, the volunteers cheered everyone on despite the windy and cold conditions and ensured everyone had as much fun as possible.
Despite the cold many of the runners decided to follow the lead of race director, Adam Turnbull, and join in the celebrations for National Sleep Day arriving at the start line and completing the course in their pyjamas.
All of the runners were rewarded for their efforts by the extra addition of cake at the end of today’s run which seemed to cheer everyone up (despite the weathers efforts to blow the cake table away).
As always, the event couldn’t take place without our volunteers, a big thanks to:
