Thank you to the 34 volunteers who helped make this run possible. Well done to the 429 runners and walkers, 33 of whom were first timers. We welcomed tourists from Liverpool, Mansfield and Basingstoke!
We also had a visit from Gregory Bailey who has run 225 different parkruns but has never done the same one twice! Thanks for joining us at the Tesco cafe Gregory. We would love to say see you again soon but we think that’s probably unlikely!
Today we officially said goodbye to DofE Award volunteer Amy Mulholland who was co-Run Director. Many thanks for all your help Amy. Hopefully you’ll be back volunteering and running in the near future. A big welcome to Nate Johnson and Matt Dwyer who have joined our DofE Award volunteer team.
Lots of parkrun girl power in these photos!
We only had 2 milestones to celebrate today, so well done to:
Carla Ferguson (JW11-14) who finished her 10th
and Sushila Magar who completed her 50th.
Please let us know if you have any milestone, special run or birthday so we can give you shout out at the beginning of each parkrun.
We hope you all enjoyed your run today in rather wet conditions - 53 of you achieved PBs and sorry to anybody trying to keep up with our 30 minute pacer. A miscalculation over target pace per mile combined with a watch not working properly resulted in our pacer coming in ahead of schedule.
Just a reminder to say that Rushmoor parkrun is CANCELLED NEXT WEEK (27th Jan) due to a cycle event. Maybe try some tourism at Frimley Lodge, Alice Holt, Bracknell, Guildford, Woodley or further afield to work towards your next t-shirt!
See you on the 3rd February.
