On a dry, bright, but cool Saturday morning 205 people came to Ros #101 with one of two things on their mind; a nice steady trot around or consign their PB to oblivion. The latter saw 39 people record a new Personal Best so a very well done to them.
In total there were 19 different clubs being represented and it was fantastic to see first timers from both Scotland and the South West of England. The customised orange parkrun shirts are a great help seeing where folk are from!
First male across the line was James Farmer (Heanor RC) in a time of 19:03 and first lady being Ruth Pettit in 22:08.
A number of milestones were achieved on the day (Megan Moreton ran for the 10th time to join the junior 10 club, while Will Ferriday joined the 50 club) which only meant one thing ... CAKE!
This is definitely something Rosliston parkrun has become famous for so I am never surprised to see so many tourists venturing from far and wide to visit. [look out for more cake in a few weeks time on our 2nd birthday-Sarah]

Rosliston parkrun looks forward to welcoming all to the 102 event this coming Saturday but please be aware, as posted on the Facebook page, that a local road closure in Rosliston may delay your journey. So if this may effect you please allow a little extra time.
And as always DONT FORGET YOUR BARCODE #dfyb as this is a barcode only timed event.
Rosliston parkrun takes place every Saturday at 9am at the Forestry Centre. Please remember to pay your £1 at the pay station to receive a parking ticket and place this , along with a spare barcode, on your dashboard to park until 10:30am. There is a new runners & tourist brief at 8.45 with the normal pre-run brief at the start at 8.55. After the run we meet in The Hub Café located near the finish area
