Run Report #63
Unusually it was a grey morning with constant mizzle for the 148 runners and walkers and the wonderful 25 volunteers who cheered, supported and helped as they got wetter and wetter.
Run director, Bec welcomed tourists from Marlow, Barking, Bushy, Loughton and Reading as well as visitors from Yeovil as Montucute parkrun fell victim to the weather again. The high tide and pebble filled funnel meant another slight change to the route but light winds led to very good conditions.
The first two finishers enjoyed a close fought run with Luke Reed just pipping Adam Hennessey on the line. Eleanor Wood was first female ahead of Naomi Shaw. She was also top on age grade with another impressive 86%.
Congratulations to the 43 of you who achieved personal bests and a special well done to the 18 who did their first ever parkrun. Welcome to the parkrun family and come back soon.
Many runners and volunteers joined us to dry off afterwards with coffee in Pebbles where the wet tokens also had to be dried before they could be sorted.
See you next Saturday.
