What a glorious way to start a Saturday morning - the weather was kind, warming up nicely but a little overcast, the birds were singing and we all seemed to have a little spring in our step at the surprising sight of a golden orb in the sky! The course is still drying out due to the heavy rains over the last week, so a couple of areas of the course were roped off to keep us away from the worst of the mud – I think this adds to the ‘charm’ of March parkrun.
Today we had parkrun tourists from Cambridge and Telford - The Telford team were racking up tourist destinations and March was their twentieth different course. We also saw our numbers swell a little due to the cancellation of Huntingdon parkrun again – welcome all.
Today we had 173 runners, joggers and walkers enjoy the four-lap route of West End Park.
First across the line for the gents was Simon Mead (Ramsey Runners) with a time of 18:11
First across the line for the ladies was Megan Ayling (March AC) with a time of 23:41
We had 9 PBs and 15 First Timers at March of which 7 it was their first ever parkrun.
We had 55 club runners representing 16 clubs. The first 10 runners across the line were all representing a club – well done everyone.
And finally, a round of applause for our awesome band of volunteers who make March parkrun such a friendly, well organised way to spend a Saturday morning. A special mention must go to Sam Wool who was volunteering for the 50th time today – thank you Sam!
Running quote of the week: “Runderful (adjective) – How you feel the minute after you finish your run”.
