We hope you all enjoyed it as much as we did. The team are so proud of the success that Montrose parkrun has become, we’ve all made a lot of new friends over the past 12 months and we hope that our next 12 months will be just as fantastic.
Well done again to our prize winners - Denis Rice (adult volunteer of the year), Jade Jessiman (junior volunteer of the year, Morag Ellery (adult parkrunner of the year) and Brea Rushworth (junior parkrunner of the year).

Today's full results and a complete event history can be found on the Montrose parkrun Results Page.
Also a massive thank you to all who came to our 1st Birthday on Saturday. We were spoiled rotten with the donation of the two Bikes from Bruce’s Cycle Bothy to be used as quick response should an incident occur and as bike marshal as needed.
We also announced that the Tesco's bags for help scheme was an immense success as we were awarded £4000.
This money will go towards a 24/7 AED at Broomfield and a further portable AED for each of the bike's. We have also acquired 6 two way radios to be used by the Marshals, tail walker and our Run Director at each event. This again will help us respond quickly to an incident should one occur. If that was not enough we also had lots of tourists and Philip's family were out in force to celebrate his life. Finally we have a lot of new pictures for you on our Flickr page, please take a look.
