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.

Montrose parkrun started on 8th July 2017. Since then 1,435 participants have completed 5,629 parkruns covering a total distance of 28,145 km, including 1,408 new Personal Bests.

 

Montrose parkrun Event number 52 on 7th July 2018

Denis (obviously on the right) our most seasoned volunteer aka our token master was on BBC radio Scotland Friday morning. He spoke of our NHS on her 70th birthday. Denis in his skills slipped in the amazing benefits of health to include parkrun.

Don't forget next week is our 1st Birthday and we like things to go off with a bang.

We will plan the weather...we hope!!
