This week's Run Report is brought to you by Tourist Laura Seth. Thank you Laura for a great report. If you would like to have a go at writing the Run Report in the future please get in touch.
The air had an autumnal feel to it as 185 of you gathered at Sconce park for your weekly parkrun fix. By 9am the sun was warming up and it was definitely a day for the t-shirts and shorts. Conditions for running were near perfect and 20 of you agreed clocking up brand new PB's. Congratulations to you all.
Congratulations to Eddie Croydon-Fowler and Derek Wilmot who completed their 100 parkruns and to Dave Tilley who recieved his 25 volunteer card for expertly pacing parkrunners around the course 25 times. Congratulations to David Cross who completed his 50th parkrun. Also a double congratulations to Karen Borrill who completed her 150th parkrun and was awarded her 25 volunteer card. Well done to you all!
Ten of you ran your very first parkrun, welcome Ben SUTHERLAND, James WEBB, Emma RICHARDS, Amy MITCHELL, Tom RIDGEWAY, Bryn STYLES, Jeremy BOYDEN, Joanne MCNICHOLAS, Rhian RIDGEWAY and Julie KNIGHT to the parkrun family, if your anything like me you'll be back for more very soon. Today I ran my 133rd parkrun and my second at Newark. I'm currently enjoying some parkrun tourism, travelling around the country visiting lots of new parks. Myself and my friend Jen are trying to complete the parkrun alphabet by running a parkrun beginning with each letter, today Jen got her N #JensN. We've still got a few to go and will have to venture outside to UK to complete it, but we both love a challenge.
Today's first male across the line was Tom Marshall, Jessica Gordon led the ladies home and Tom Horsman was first junior. Marilyn Hatherley achieved the highest age grade of 78.82%, well done to you all.
Your morning run, jog or walk wouldn't have been possible without the wonderful team of volunteer's who make parkrun possible each and every week. Alan and Dean were your timers this morning, Ernie handed you your finish token in the funnel managed by Martin. Georgia, Abigail and Rose scanned your barcodes, you were cheered and clapped around the course by Keith, Kathryn, Sarah-Jane and Brian, Breeze and Jessica ensured you all got round safely and the whole team was expertly managed by your run director Fiona.
Volunteering is a great way to experience another side of parkrun so please put your name down on the roster for an upcoming week.
I thoroughly enjoyed my run this morning and am looking forward to next Saturday already.
