A dry and sandy course this week at Rushmere made for a challenging run today. The early cloud and drizzle lifted and the sun shone on the 138 people who ran, jogged and walked the course. We welcomed a new runner joining parkrun, plus 13 others who were visiting Rushmere for the first time, including a fun and friendly group of tourists from On The Run, Aylesbury. We also had cake – Colin Larkins celebrated his 60th birthday and Chris Warby his milestone 25th Volunteer with parkrun - many congratulations to you both.
Our first finisher was Junior, Nicholas Hammett in 20.12, followed by Edward Price in 20.26 and David Baillie with a time of 21.31. First lady was Emily Rothery crossing the finish in 23.23, followed by Junior Amy Killick in 24.37 and Sarah Hyde in 25.53.
Well done to everyone participating today, including the 32 people setting new PBs. Today's full results can be found on the Rushmere parkrun Results Page. Also see our Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/rushmereparkrun and look out for Richard Hill’s photos.
Without volunteers who give a little of their time on Saturday mornings, our weekly parkrun cannot go ahead. Please do consider adding your name to the roster – if everyone just volunteered the once, we would have a complete roster for months! So, my grateful thanks go to this week’s hi-viz heroes who provided your parkrun:
Richard HILL • Christine AYERS • Anna MEAD • Mark MCLOUGHLIN • Celia WALKER • Chris STENNER • Darren WINFIELD • Keith PHILLIPS • Chris WARBY • James BASSIL • Hope GRANT • Rob GRANT
Don’t forget, we have a Kid’s Takeover parkrun on 7th July – if your child would like to participate, there are plenty of roles to choose from, so please send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org.
