Run report Nov 3rd 2018

Congratulations to the 271 runners who took on the windy conditions today. We had 19 first timers and visitors from Manchester, Victoria Docks in London, Welshpool, Aberdeen and Cork. Thank you all for coming!

Thank you to all our volunteers today who without them, we couldn't put the event on. Thanks to the members of Perth Road Runners who turned out in force to volunteer as marshals, beyond the finish line and paced the run. Well done also to our team who successfully helped with our Couch to 5k program.

Congratulations to the 20 runners who recorded Personal Bests!

Warning for the coming weeks! We had one runner who suffered a cut lip from a bramble bush blown into her face on the path by the golf course where the tree roots are under the path. We will be contacting the Council to trim this back and we would advise caution when running along that stretch.

We still need volunteers for the coming weeks and of course Christmas Day and New Years Day. Please let us know if you can help out.

This week 271 people ran, jogged and walked the course, of whom 19 were first timers and 20 recorded new Personal Bests. Representatives of 19 different clubs took part.

The event was made possible by 38 volunteers:

Andy SMITH • Stewart DALLAS • Alan PATERSON • David STOKOE • Neil MUIR • Maria DALE • Gillian SMITH • Ruth JOHNSON • Ronnie GLEN • Caroline HOGARTH • Kevin ROGERS • James FOTHERINGHAM • Harry JAFFREY-SMITH • Rhona WATSON • Alan WATSON • Kate MARSHALL • Cheryl GAHAN • Rhona HENDERSON • Gillian MCGUIRE • Zoe IRVINE • Fiona MUIR • David SINCLAIR • Stewart REID • Ian MCGRATH • Steven BONTHRONE • Emily JACQUES • Dawn MCLEISH • Stephane REID • Andy MCLEISH • Gregor WELLS • Stephanie BOYD • Andy MILLER • Garry SMITH • Sara BAILLIE • Yvonne BRYSON • Amy BRYSON • Gilly HARRISON • Sara ALEXANDER

Another Great Run

It was a lovely crisp morning on the North Inch. We welcomed 258 awesome athletes, including 14 first timers (yeah! see you next time).

We had tourists from Cannock Chase, Edinburgh, Vogrie (a lovely event), Singapore, Paisley, Glasgow, Kirkcaldy and St. Andrews. Parkrun tourism is a great way to discover new places and make friends, whilst enjoying a run in a park, just ask our own RD Paul Robertson who was running at home after becoming a Scotland Regionaire last week at Bressay parkrun (he has completed all of the parkrun events in Scotland).

We are well into our latest Couch to 5k programme - a brilliant initiative started by members of the Perth parkrun community to support people starting out on their running journey. We are immensely proud of the C25K pacers and the runners.

See you all next time.
