Panshanger parkrun 4 years old today!!

It was a lovely day for our 4th Birthday - can you believe it? Today we had 375 runners ,walkers and cake eaters.

There were 'year-end' medals (chocolate) for some amazing volunteers:-
Gold to Pam Hurd who has volunteered 42 times this year! Silver medal went to Rab Harley who has volunteered 38 times and Bronze went to Mark Morris who has volunteered 33 times this year.

Some younger members also were awarded medals : Oliver Hobdell was our most accurate pacer - two appearances as '30minutes' and he was only 1 second out each time!! George Rowedder (JM15-17) has volunteered 26 times this year and has reduced his pb from 20:01 to 17:50. Millie Northfield (JW 15-17) has volunteered 32 times this year and is a regular parkrun runner too.

Today our top three men were John Eves, Bedford&County AC in 16:12, David Craddock, Hoddesdon Tri Club in 17:53 and Paul Guy, Garden City Runners in 17:59. Top ladies were Linda Goodwin in 22:10, Hannah Frank , Garden City Runners in 22:18 and Sarah Aitchison in 25:52.

For your safety…

A massive thank you goes to Michelle ASHWELL for some superb training on CPR and the use of the portable defibrillator (which is held at the start/finish every week). The training was held immediately after todays parkrun and was attended by your Run Directors and other members of the Panshanger and Hertford Junior parkrun communities.
