Christmas Day and New Year’s Day parkruns

Thanks to the brilliant volunteers as Penrose we have decided to put on two additional parkruns over the Christmas period in addition to our usual Saturday ones!!

Please feel free to turn up in all your finery for these special occasions! I expect to see new trainers, Garmins, running gear, etc all courtesy of Santa Claus! Fancy dress is optional but a Santa hat on Christmas Day would be great.

On a more serious note I would like everyone to bring an item of food (non perishables please) so that we can make a donation to the local food bank.

MERRY CHRISTMAS AND A HAPPY NEW YEAR!!

Penrose parkrun #130 – 30th of September 2017

A busy morning at Penrose parkrun today with 212 participants making their way through the 'new and improved' finish funnel (a bit muddy under the conker tree at the mo!). We had parkrun tourists a plenty with visitors from Derbyshire, London, Poole, Cambridge, Kings Lynn and Brighton to name a few. We also had a whole bunch of local first timer parkrunners joining us. We had 2 birthdays this week, firstly a birthday shout out to Mike Rooney and alsSandra Treleven who kindly brought us birthday treats...on her birthday!!! It was also a milestone run for Ruth Glover who celebrated her 50th parkrun today!

Finally a shout out to the dream team of volunteers today who made the morning go along smoothly; thank you to the 2 Di's, Sue, Tony (who was closest in our 'finish number sweepstake!'), the marvellous Mick, Helen, Shane and Abby, Ewan, Will and Charlie!

Cheers n gone

Penrose parkrun #129 – 23rd September 2017

A lovely sunny morning but very muddy and slippy underfoot today, the finish line may have to start being rerouted next week to avoid the quagmire that we get over the wetter months. Still, everyone enjoyed a little muddy puddle to finish off their parkrun today so no harm done!! There were a few new parkrunners today and also a few tourists from places such as Bushy Park, Worcester, Rickmandsworth, Essex and a few others. We also had two milestone runs today, Lyn Jones doing her 50th and Holly Tregear, age 7, doing her 100th so very well done to both of them. Holly brought along some chocolates to share and they were much appreciated.

A big thank you to all today's volunteers, especially Wendy who stood in for Mick brilliantly at the turnaround point, he's back next week so normal service will be resumed! Also thanks to Emily, Jules, Abby, Diane P, Charlie, Jo, Mark, Ewan, Will. Also Jon and Suzie Savage who made it a whole family affair by bringing the kids to volunteer!!
