The run report for event #36 is a week late (I've been spending as much time outside away from laptop as possible) however it's one not to be missed so we've made sure to include it in a combined event #36 and #37 report.
#36 Manchester Triathlon take over
We love to shout out about our incredible volunteers and event #36 is no different. Manchester Triathlon Club came down and did a parkrun takeover which gave our volunteer coordinators a week to relax a bit. Not only did they come down and help us on the day they also wrote this for our run report:
166 Runners completed Sale Water Parkrun this Saturday 30th June in the
glorious Mancunian summer sun. There were an incredible 43 first timers
and 30 New PBs!
First across the line was Kieran Cooper in a scorching
17:20, with Richard Cooper and Richard Yates completing the top 3.
First female across the line was Frances Jackson in 22:50, followed by
Michelle Mortimer and Tara Ferguson.
Awesome work by first time Run Director Alice Doherty and thank you to all the volunteers who made the event possible. A large number of the volunteers this weekend were provided by Manchester Triathlon Club (Man Tri), if you’d like to
learn more about the wonderful sport of triathlon then check them out

Finally, a shameless plug for their triathlon event,
Boundary Breeze which will take place on Sunday 22nd July, SIGN UP at

It was another warm morning down at the water park. This week 164 people ran, jogged and walked the course, of whom 41 were first timers and 34 recorded new Personal Bests. We had tourists visit us from Germany and from the cancelled Heaton Park parkrun.
A shout out goes to James Kelly this week who was our tail walker and was celebrating his 25th volunteering stint. Thanks for all your help and commitment to parkrun.
The event was made possible by 18 volunteers:
Rachel MCCURRIE • Kevin MAHON • Val BRENNAN • Letitia COOPER • Andy LAND • Orla RAFTERY • Richard DANIEL • Paulette STOREY • Karen FORREST • Andrew COLLEY • Kaylea HAYNES • Nicolas WHEELER • James KELLY • Cat HANSEN • Angus MCCURRIE • Paul WILSON • Niamh MACFARLANE • Andrew CAMPBELL
