It is always nice to welcome visitors to Pendle parkrun and on Saturday we had nine first timers.
Among them were Michael and Fiona Hernandez. The pair are Ripon Runners and regulars at the scenic Fountains Abbey parkrun where they have both run more than 90 times. But on Saturday, they decided to clock up their 100th parkrun by making the trip to Pendle.
We also said hello for the first time to Jim McGrath, Paul Tucker, David Edmondson, Andrew Prestidge, Thomas Haynes, Phoebe Taylor and Julie Taylor.
Two Pendle parkrun regulars, Graham Dickinson and Mo Boden, clocked up their 50th parkruns on Saturday.
And Graham celebrated in style as he went home with a shiny new PB, the third new best time he has set this year.
He was one of 11 to clock up new personal best times, the others coming from Harry Beechey, who stormed to fourth place by taking almost two minutes of his previous best set a week earlier, Fred Green, Gavin O'Connor, Pip Larter - taking a whole second off his previous best time set in 2014 - Francesca Bury, Lee Doidge, Poppy Warriner, Austin Griffiths, Julie Rowe - her fourth successive PB - and Vicky Deaville.
At the front of the field Paul Crabby Crabtree kept up his amazing run of consistency.
In what was his 38th Pendle parkrun, he finished first for the 26th time and he has never finished outside the top three. Adam Holda is second on the all-time list of first finishers and finished in second place on Saturday with Josh Lawson third.
Fionnuala Swan was first lady home for the seventh time, finishing ahead of Melanie Barber and Francesa Bury.
