Event #108 – A Season of Goodwill

It was a real pleasure watching our happy band of 109 runners, joggers and walkers at Rushmere today. There was more than a hint of the festive season in the air, surrounded as we were by Christmas trees, quite a few Santa hats and even the odd Christmas jumper. We welcomed 8 first timers to our course, including tourists from Caerphilly, Basingstoke, Chester, Leeds and Cranbrook in Kent who travelled to take on our woodland trail. They were a friendly bunch and it was lovely getting to know them over a post-run coffee.
Many congratulations to Andy GRIGGS who celebrated his 50th milestone (also with a PB!) and to Kelly HOWARD, who completed her 25th volunteer for parkrun as one of our marshals. Thank you for the sweets.
The conditions were good and the course was clearly fast today – well done to the 27 runners who set a new PB. A sprint-finish decided the run, with Carl SQUIRES setting a PB of 18.43, narrowly beating Jamie FARMER across the line into first place. Great effort, Carl. Matthew BROOKS was our third finisher in 21.10 and visitor Joy HICKMAN was first female with a time of 23.38, again a PB. Bethany GOODLAD was the second lady in 25.46 (another new PB) and Jessica ANSTEE third lady, with 25.59.

Today's full results can be found on the Rushmere parkrun Results Page.

I would like to thank my ‘Dream Team’ of 13 volunteers who, in the season of goodwill, gave their time and made today’s parkrun happen:

Michael SHARMAN • Richard HILL • Christine AYERS • David AYERS •  Sarah DELDERFIELD • Lisa MITCHINSON • Marcus MITCHINSON • Kathy ATKINSON • Colin LARKINS • Kelly HOWARD • Kevin MELLOR • Jordan CALLOW •    Alan JACKSON
