On the run up to parkrunday (formerly known as Saturday), it's always exciting anticipating the next parkrun. However, last week it became clearer as the week progressed that it looked more and more likely that it was going to be a wet one. And it certainly didn't disappoint in that respect!
Despite the atrocious conditions, 118 hardy souls joined us for a soggy but fun 5k. Among the crowd were the new graduates from the Couch to 5k programme run by Arbroath Footers. At Montrose parkrun we absolutely love celebrating C25K graduations so it was lovely to have them along. We do seem to recall the weather being pretty bad when they joined us last year. Hmmm...
A very special thanks this week goes to our high-vis heroes, who all got very wet and very cold, but there were no complaints at all.
Next week we have our next takeover by Montrose Tennis Club. So we hope you will all swing by, ace the run and make a racket when you cross the finish line.
This week 118 people ran, jogged and walked the course, of whom 14 were first timers and 18 recorded new Personal Bests. Representatives of 9 different clubs took part.
The event was made possible by 15 volunteers:
Wendy ARTHUR • Michelle WAINWRIGHT • Michael ELLERY • Reg HUNTER • Denis RICE • Ian BEATTIE • Caroline KINGHORN • Jamie KINGHORN • Michael FORBES • Brea RUSHWORTH • Hilary MURDOCH • Arthur GRANT • Andrea JOHNSTON • Peter GREIG • Gary JAMIESON
