The sun was shining, and no sign of ice (for a change) as Run Director Michael Boaden welcomed 171 parkrunners to Prudhoe Riverside this morning, including parkrun tourists from Surbiton, Clapham, Ormskirk and York.
14 of today’s 27 first timers completed their first ever parkrun, and 38 parkrunners recorded new Personal Bests, including our very own Run Director Richard Heslop, who’s been chasing a new PB for a while! Excellent practice for keeping one trail shoe ahead of the dwarves on the Duergar Nightcrawler run on the Simonside Hills next Saturday night. Well done to all who took part today, and good luck to everyone running the Nightcrawler with Hezzy next weekend.
The event was made possible by 19 volunteers:
Joanne LUCKING • Mel REED • Jane MORTON • Michael, Helen and Jack BOADEN • Jason ROBSON • Emma CROWLEY • Paul ROBINSON • Richard HESLOP • Angela NEWSOME • Amanda FLETCHER • Janine CALKIN • Paul REVILL • Nicola MACLEAN • Jackie CAVE • Jack COLLINSON • Claire KNOWLES • Emma TALLET
No milestones this week, but we celebrate two next weekend, when we’ll reach 50,000km run since Prudhoe Riverside parkrun started, and someone will cross the line as our 10,000th parkrunner. It could be you! See you next Saturday and #dfyb.
