Glorious sunshine and lovely conditions were what we ordered for today's Penrhyn parkrun, with 173 participants completing the two big and two small loops. Today, there were 15 1st timers to parkrun and a further 24 visitors to Penrhyn which included parkrun tourists from Widnes (plus buggy!), Basingstoke, Huntingdon and Newport - hope you all enjoyed it!
Fastest finishers today were: Peter Hooker in 19:03, Peter Jones in 19:21 and Sion Roberts in 19:27. For the ladies, Helen Morgan was the first home in 23:27, closely followed by Rebecca Moorcroft in 23:31 and Mathilde Bue in 24:25. Deri Hockley was the fastest junior home in 23:33. There were representatives of 5 running clubs and 39 pbs were set today!
The only major milestone achieved this week was Felicity Hayes, completing her 100th (and 92nd at Penrhyn!) There were a couple of Green 250 shirts spotted and this week's most experienced parkrunner was Pat Jackson on her 288th. I'm going to mention Dennis Smith who last week completed his 150th parkrun, all of which have been at Penrhyn (today being 151). I believe that there may be one or two regulars hitting milestones next week so please message in or speak to the Run Director on the day to announce any future milestones
Finally, a big thank you to all the volunteers today who, a) helped out to allow the event to take place and b) also made my role as RD a lot easier! Please email or message in with your barcode details if you want to volunteer - 25 times and you get a lovely fetching aubergine coloured T shirt!
See you next week
Chris Williams (No Buggy today!)
