Run Report 19th Jan 2019

It was a cold, dank day with testing underfoot conditions from which Shettleston's Perth first timer,Peter Avent, led home the brave 295 turnout. Visitor Jennifer Grewer was fastest woman in 15th position.
There were 22 first timers and 38 folk recorded new Personal Bests. Representatives of 19 different clubs took part.
The event was made possible by 15 volunteers:

Fabienne THOMPSON • Kenneth G N STEWART • Ronnie MCNEIL • Alison WINTER • Steven BONTHRONE • Kate MARSHALL • Eddie TORRIE • Jane OLIPHANT • Carole MALLETT • Kevin RIDDELL • Duncan CAMERON • Gilly HARRISON • Brian ROPER • Catherine THOMSON • Tess CORCORAN

Thanks to all of them and thanks too to all the volunteers for next week - the roster is full. There are still places available for the following Saturday.
That's a big day with Carol in the run directors jacket. Not only is it pacer day but Skye TV cameras are expected. More on that to follow.

Full results and a complete event history can be found on the Perth parkrun Results Page.

Katharine Melville's recent pb of 31:16? would be with 19m6s as a 40 year old.  "I'd never have run that fast as a 40 year old" - she says, "My best then would have been around 22m."

That’s 2018 parkrunning finished folks! Thanks to all 265 of you who joined in today including 8 first timers ( welcome Dan, Jonathan, Campbell, Linsey, Poppy, Fynn, Conor and Kirstin).
The conditions didn’t favour a fast time but that didn’t stop 15 of you recording new PBs.

A special thanks to todays volunteers as well as everyone who has helped out throughout the year.

We had visitors from all over today, too many to mention in my Brief, they included many exotic locations such as London, Pendle, Liverpool, Worsley Woods, Fundee, York, Glasgow, Dunfermline, Kinross and Bishops Stortford. Thanks to all for visiting our event.

A wee shout out to Paul Robertson who has run or volunteered on every Saturday (+ NYD and Christmas day) in 2018. Has anyone else been that obsessive this year?

The event was made possible by 14 volunteers:

Simon FINCH • Maria DALE • Katharine MELVILLE • Carol ROSE • Finlay DALE • Steven BONTHRONE • Philip LIDSTONE • Ronald WILSON • Lewis WILSON • Eve HUMPHRY • Duncan CAMERON • Jane BOYDEN • Matthew ROSS • Andrew GORDON
