Spring running at last. The set-up team were greeted by a beautiful blue sky, the park trees were greener that last week and the parkrun flag didn't sink into the ground quite so easily.
It was great to see 193 people running, jogging and walking the course, well done in particular to the 7 people doing their first parkrun, another 7 who had come back for a second one and the 14 on their 3/4 runs (getting hooked yet?).
We had 25 visitors in total, good to see you all, of notable mention (because they are the only ones I can remember) were the members of the Humber Tri Club back and our single visitor from parkrun Denmark. Thanks for visiting Skipton and hope to see you back soon.
Quite a number of Personal Bests among the 1/2/3/4/5 run categories, great progress and keep running there will be much more to come.
New club members this month were Katie Boucher on 10 runs, Victoria Willett reached her 50 milestone, Skipton regular Wendy Hall achieved 100 and Humber Tri visitor Leanne Kilvington also ran her 100th. Excellent running discipline! As you may know parkrun are getting to grips with the backlog of club shirts, starting with those who have been waiting longest, so your club shirt email may take a few weeks to appear.
As always thanks to the volunteer team, your run only happens because of them so please take your turn on the volunteering rota.
