We think you must have all been out Christmas Shopping or recovering from a Christmas night out as our numbers were a bit lower this week with 59 people who ran, jogged and walked the course, of whom 4 were first timers and 2 recorded new Personal Bests.

We had visitors from Dundee, Aberdeen, Edinburgh and Brechin, and had some great feedback that they really enjoyed our route and will be back again, which is awesome to hear.

Parkrun 08/12/2018 Montrose

We had a few people complete their first ever parkrun so well done to them

Remember that we are not having a run on Christmas Day this year, but at New Year our run is at 11am.  You can pop to Stonehaven to do their run at 9am on NYD and then come to Montrose for 11, the only day you can do 2 runs on the same day.

We had first time volunteers Brian Manzi and Garry Tasker who joined some of our regulars, as you can see the tea and coffee went down well once we set the runners off. Volunteering is easy and very rewarding, why not join us 1 week and give it a go.

Montrose parkrun Event number 72 on 1st December 2018

It finally stopped raining! It wasn't even too windy so conditions were good considering we're now into the winter months.

Special mentions to Chris Maher completed his 100th parkrun, and some of the St Cyrus Solos who joined him doing their Santa run. Our own Christmas run will be on the 22nd Dec, so get those Santa hats looked out for then.

and to our birthday girls Avila Murray and Zoe Graham, and to Loki Walker (the world's slowest greyhound!) for completing his first parkrun.

Montrose parkrun Event number 71 on 24th November 2018

Well done to all our runners, joggers and walkers today underfoot conditions were not the best but it was great to see another good turnout on a pretty grey morning although it did stay mostly dry.

Our Token Master Denis is away to a family birthday party but he can't be counted as absent as he called me at 9:31am to make sure you were set off on time and to tell me his number prediction of 92 only one out! Young Chloe did a fantastic job with Denis's tokens.

Happy Birthday to one of our fantastic pacers Pauline who celebrated her birthday with a parkrun.
We have plenty volunteering opportunities next week and the coming weeks, if you would like to be a hi-viz hero email montrosehelpers@parkrun.com or leave us a message on Facebook.

Montrose parkrun Event number 70 on 17th November 2018

This week saw the debut of Jamie in the role of Run Director. It's quite a daunting task, but made easier by the fantastic efforts of our ever-helpful volunteers. Even when a slight technical mishap took place as the first runner crossed the line (naming no names!) the team were able to recover, laugh it off and all went smoothly from there on.

We were joined this week by 10 brand new park runners (one of whom was our first finisher) as well as tourists from Dundee, Linlithgow, Banchory and Glasgow. Welcome to you all, we look forward to seeing you again. Despite the chill in the air and slight breeze, conditions were good and 18 park runners recorded a personal best time - well done to you all!

Congratulations also go to Bryony Walker who quietly celebrated her 50th volunteering role this week - well done Bryony, thanks for the massive contribution you make to Montrose parkrun.

Having settled on Grey Harlings as our winter post-run cuppie destination, it was great to see quite a few people join us for some well-deserved hot food and drinks, good banter and watching Jamie sweat his way through compiling the results.

Montrose parkrun can only take place because of the volunteers who generously give their time to make it happen. If you would like to volunteer for a future parkrun, please email montrosehelpers@parkrun.com.

Montrose parkrun Event number 69 on 10th November 2018

It was lovely to see a sea of red at parkrun this weekend. How thoughtful of the RAF to help create such a lovely course for us, although we are fairly certain that wasn’t their first thought 105 years ago! This week 105 people ran, jogged and walked the historic aerodrome.

Big week for us next week as Jamie Kinghorn will be taking the reigns as Run Director for the first time. Make sure you all remember your barcodes to make Jamie’s first week easy!
