Its a question that's asked far too often...….normally by those that just don't get it!
Why do we get up before the sun most Saturdays, and venture out in unpredictable conditions?
We do it for days like yesterday - a day full of smiling faces, good numbers and positivity.
And Ive gotta say, we have a lot of these days.
81 runners / walkers turned up yesterday, the second highest figures this year, and the highest since March.
Equally impressive was the volunteers cover, with people stepping in at the last minute as well as a 'tourist' volunteer.
Volunteers are at the heart of what we do - and you can see the numbers of 'purple' 25 milestone t-shirts on the increase. But please remember, these volunteers are also keen runners / walkers that appreciate the chance to take part too. So why not, once in a while, try one of our varied (and exciting) roles - just like these....volunteers below!
I gave you some interesting 'stats' last week, with our increasing interaction via registrations and social media - during this week Parkrun Wiki (the fountain of all Parkrun information) added a list of our under 11's who have participated. This gives a basic league table of all under 11's (within the event calendar year) and the number of runs they have done - a good indicator to gaining their '10' white milestone t-shirt.
Pictured below is one of our most recent addition - Toby Miklos, literally airbourne! Toby is hoping to achieve his 10th run on or before our birthday event
We posted our next event yesterday - Pacers Week #2
Interested in getting to that PB, or keen to assist others in doing so - then Saturday 6th October is a date for your diaries.
We have four pacers at present, from mid 20's upward - happy to get more - please follow the link on the event if you are interested.
One more date for the diary is 20th October...…..its our 1st birthday!!!!!!!!!
And we plan to celebrate.
We are looking to celebrate both on the morning and at a social evening - with cake, alcohol and awards. So keep a close eye on our social media feeds.
Anyone out there know someone that may want to sponsor or help out with our awards trinkets? Please PM if you do
