You know it’s going to be a warm one when you have to apply sunscreen before going out at 7.30am to set the parkrun course up, but at least it turned out nice for the big event (and I don’t mean the one happening at Windsor)! We did have a good show of red, white and blue, but this was Washington Running Club’s colours, rather than wedding bunting, as they descended en-masse to celebrate club member Alan Lowery’s 50th parkrun. Congratulations Alan: hope you all enjoyed the course, and the cupcakes after...
This week 168 people ran, jogged and walked the course, of whom 26 were first timers. Representatives of 18 different clubs took part. Prudhoe Riverside parkrun event team member Melanie Elliott was one of the 49 celebrating Personal Bests today. Her delight at running a sub-38 parkrun was, however, eclipsed by her delight at not being lapped by first finisher Jack Boaden! Well done to everyone who ran, jogged or walked today, especially to those taking part for the first time. Come back and see us again soon.
Of course, we couldn’t do it without our hi-vis heroes, who this week were:
Joanne LUCKING • Jane MORTON • Angela NEWSOME • Amanda FLETCHER • Lisa NAPIER • Janine CALKIN • Jill HARLAND • Claire DAVIES • Jennifer BURN • Nicola MACLEAN • Jessica BEATTIE • Steven FINNIE • Mary BLANDEN • Marzena MARZEC • Stephen LEONARD • Alexandra HUGHES • Steven HART • Paul BROWN • Joshua BROWN • Phillipa KIMBERLEY
