They were given a very warm welcome at the start and set off to complete the 5km. It was good to see a couple of their members after finishing themselves go back to help their fellow member who was struggling a bit to finish, showing good sportsmanship, very impressive. Congratulations to Simon Woodford who was running his 150th parkrun. The Run/Walk group is gaining momentum with the volunteers organizing them being very encouraging and supportive.

Southwick parkrun Event 324

Was this the most amazing parkrun at Southwick to date? The Halloween theme was embraced by many of the 394 people who took part with witches monks and many other costumes inluding our Event director Sean wearing a giant spider and run director Fiona with a pumpkin on her head. The costumes were judged and Jennifer O'Connor was deemed to have worn the best costume. The Clock Change reverse run was very popular and the debate on whether this assisted any of the amazing 92 who produced new Personal Best Times will go on and on. The next question is whether the Christmas parkrun will be bigger and better. Huge congratulations to Olive Keetch who ran ran her 50th run and Hamish Booth who was on his 100th. First across the line was Ricky Montacute producing a new PB to finish in 17.06 with Ryan Wheeler second in 17.27.
