Hello and Welcome to the Shipley Country Park Run run report Event number 68 !!
Another beautiful sunny and warm morning saw 133 people attend today; 132 people ran,jogged or walked the course 1 person wanted to be different and tried to swim round after their 4 legged friend decided they didn’t want to tackle the Famous Shipley “Hill” and went for a cooling dip in the nearby Lake taking their fully clothed owner with them still attached to the lead !!
Hope you’ve dried off Alan! ! If anyone has any photos or video footage I think You’ve been framed would love to hear from you! ! This morning we were joined by representatives from 17 different clubs our usual being Smalley Road Runners, Ilkeston and Long Eaton and some as far as Scotland and Rochdale and not forgetting a family from King’s Lynn who are also part of the parkrun family running their own Junior parkrun back home- hope you enjoyed your visit to Shipley Country parkrun! ! Today we saw 24 firstimers and 23 Personal bests broken. First finisher today was Rob Carmicheal for the guy’s in a time of 19.36 and first for the girls was Stacey Sangster from Long Eaton in a time of 23.24 Great running everyone! ! A special well done to 7 year old Jack who today completed his first 5k with his parents! Well done!
