Wow – what an amazing event. The attendance record was smashed for the 2nd week in a row.
On what was a very cold morning 395 people completed the course and they were supported by 29 volunteers. To see so many people in the park being active and enjoying being outside is a great start to the weekend.
There were 51 first-timer this week and we hope you enjoyed the event and you will join us again soon and become a regular.
Although it was a cold morning the wind was light and this helped as 65 people recorded new personal bests
There were two Milestones this week -
Richard WOOLTERTON completed his 50th run
Laurella NOBLE joined the 100 club
Well done to both
Thanks to all the volunteers who braved the cold and cheered the runners on this week, as mentioned in the briefing we are short of volunteers over the next few weeks and we have a number of new run directors joining the roster that would appreciate your support. As the number of runners increase we also need more volunteers to safely hold the event so please consider volunteering if you can.
