Netley parkrun number 253 saw 201 runners descend on Royal Victoria Country Park for the weekly 5k run.
Today Netley welcomed five parkrun first timers, and a few tourists visiting our parkrun for the first time. Welcome to all!
PBs were the reward waiting at the finish line for 16 of this mornings runners - nice work!
This morning saw six new members of the 50 club, who will be wearing their nice red t-shirts in the near future. Well done to Tony Easterby, Hannah Collins, William Gill, Steven Brown, Celia Brabazon and Simon Avery for reaching that milestone.
Our most experienced parkrunner this morning was John Tussler, who has notched up 259 parkruns. John did his 175th Netley parkrun this morning.
This morning it's super-duper event director Geoff Collins' turn to let our parkrunners get to know him a bit better. So Geoff, pom poms at the ready for a spot of cheerleading...!
"Give me a P P is for participating in a weekly parkrun.
"Give me an A?" A is for all the wonderful directors and volunteers.
"Give me an R?" R is for running a weekly friendly 5k event.
"Give me a K?" K is for Karen Andrews' great run reports. (Why, thank you Geoff!)
"Give me an R?" R is for recognising first timers and improvements.
"Give me a U?" U is for Unbelievable dedication of everyone involved.
"Give me an N?" N is for never give up.
And on that note, we will see you all next week! Don't forget your barcode!
