A massive thank you to all our volunteers and participants for braving the Arctic conditions. I think some of the volunteers might be strapping hot water bottles to their bodies in the future.
It was fantastic to see the Couch to 5k graduates from the Arbroath Footers. What a day to complete your first timed 5k!
Next week sees the Montrose Tennis club doing a volunteer takeover. They are hosting an open day and coffee morning the following Saturday, the 31st March, from 9.30am and they have invited us all along for a cuppie after our first Pacer week. For more details on doing a club volunteer takeover or being a pacer please email firstname.lastname@example.org
There are a number of tennis club members who regularly take part in Montrose parkrun and we are very grateful that they have offered to volunteer on the 24th. Volunteer takeovers also helps your core volunteers to have a week off, run the course and maybe even have a day off.
For more info about the Montrose Tennis Club and further details about their open day please have a look at their website or ask one of the members this Saturday.
Our own fabulous Wendy was indulging in a bit of parkrun tourism at Strathclyde. Wendy is pictured with Moira and John who are ambasadors for parkrun in their region of Scotland., We were blessed to have Moira as our ambassador while we were setting our event up. Moira handed the reigns over to Graham at the end of last year.
