This weeks run report by take-over team, Stamford Striders chairman, and run director of the day, Nick Wells.
Today’s event saw Stamford Striders
Hijack Takeover the 146th Rutland Water parkrun as they manned all the volunteer roles, and, after last weeks downpour, it was good to see numbers back to normal again as 249 people ran, jogged and walked the course.
48 of you were first timers and 18 somehow recorded new Personal Bests despite a blustery headwind on the return from the dam.
Fortunately we finished before the Council coned off the course
Top 3 men over the line this week were Adam Howlett, a first timer to Rutland Water, in 17:33 (and a tremendous 82.05% age grading), Jordan Paylor (18:40) and Chris Glading (19:24). Lucy Caistor was first lady in 21:37 followed by Madeline Francis (22:39) and Alice Hannan (23:32)

Of course our volunteers are the only reason we can hold parkrun, so if you can help out at all please let us know - you may be resting for an event, injured, or even know someone who could help us. Just email us at email@example.com or checkout our future rosters to see what role you would like.
All volunteers are shown what to do and you will be supported in your role - we even give you a free car park pass!!
In only two weeks, on 27th October, it is our 3rd Birthday Event. It also happens to be Halloween weekend so start prepping your scary gear to dress up for a frighteningly good parkrun.
