This Saturday was another chilly one, but despite this we still saw 142 of you over the line. We also had an excellent turnout of 26 volunteers who guided and cheered you around the course, so huge thank you to them!
Even our honorary dog marshall, Buster, got in on the action!
First over the line was Luke Beresford, who sped round in 18:19! Next was Mark Brown in 22:41, closely followed by Mark Shankland in 22:49. For the ladies we saw Cerys Buxton over the line first in 25:03. Second over the line was Hazel Winchester in 27:08, with Danielle De Simone not far behind in 27:13. Excellent efforts and well done all!
As most of you know we have had to change our course due to our previous start and finish area being too water logged to use. We have decided to keep our new start and finish area permanently, so please spread the word! We would also like to thank all of you for your feedback on the new course and for bearing with us through these changes, it is unbelievably challenging to plan a new course that is bang on 5K, as well as fitting in our normal non parkrun lives - who knew finding and now loosing 200 metres in a park like Shipley could be so difficult! This week will pretty much the same, just some minor tweaking - and before you all ask, the hill remains
Finally just a mention about our Food Bank Donation Point. We started this last year, donating to Salcare in Heanor, and have had a great response and will be carrying on with this. So, if you can, pop an extra tin into weekly shop and bring it down.
Thanks again, and see you all this coming Saturday at our new starting area down by the Visitors Centre
