So I've had a few comments about last week's Run Report - (ie where was it?) so some of you do read these after all!
Not sure what happened here - I know that the Railway between Wisbech and March is still unserviceable, maybe the Carrier pigeons are too?
Anyway, enough prevaricating, last week was all about Wisbech Juniors - yes coming to Fenland soon, a Junior parkrun based in Wisbech park run by Colin Apps and his team, mainly from Three Counties Running Club (TCRC). They are seeking volunteers, so get in touch if you'd like to help! Junior parkrun is a shorter (2km) event and is totally different from a 5km parkrun - go and experience one to see a cavalry charge re-created!
So thank-you to Colin, Miranda, Joely, Gary, Sarah-Jane (who's birthday it was:) ) for volunteering this week and taking on the supportive March parkrun persona. We wish you well with Wisbech Juniors and look forward to having you back soon!
On an icy morning, Fenland District Council and Clarion Future Communities had been working hard in the park to extend the bark path and provide some matting from the steps down to the bandstand area. Once this all beds in, it will make for a safer and more sustainable run and benefit all park users. We are very lucky to have such a supportive landlord.
As for the run this week, the top three's were:
Ever-present Justin Elvidge (March AC) for the men, followed by Darren Moat in 3rd and Andy Wool to make it a March AC clean sweep for the men this week.
They were separated by Olivia (NVH) in 2nd place for the ladies, followed by Melissa Haylock and Hannah Daniel (with a shiny new PB).
Thank-you to 153 of you who ran this week and of course to the wonderful volunteers who make the event happen every week!
