Hi Stewart parkrunners,
It was great to see so many of you this morning for our last parkrun of 2018. It turned out to be quite mild and luckily the wind had settled.
As always the event only took place thanks to our amazing 25 volunteers:
John GRAY • Alan GUY • John LEES • Sarah DONNELLY • Kenny SALKELD • Fred FORTH • William Anthony SIGSWORTH • Carolyn GALE • Ruth MCMASTER LEES • Lucy TAPPER • Molly TAPPER • Leah DONNELLY • Ruby DONNELLY • Sean DONNELLY • Peter ATKINSON • John CAMPBELL • Alan BLACKWOOD • Anna ROWAN • Ian WATSON • Andrew SIMPSON • Susan COLEMAN • Pippa ROWAN • Emma ARMSTRONG • Jamie RICHARDSON • Lucy RICHARDSON
New Year's day parkrun will go ahead on Tuesday. It is double parkrun day so you are welcome to Stewarts park at 9am then Albert park at 10.30am. If you are able to help out at either runs please get in touch - Ruth and Andy will be over the moon.
Speaking of New Year - who is up for a resolution? How about adding your name to the volunteer roster over the coming weeks? We would love to hear from you either through our Facebook page or by emailing email@example.com.
You are in for a treat at Stewarts on NYD where 3 'Dames' will be completing the course - give them a wave as you see them.
It was fantastic to welcome 37 first timers this morning as well as visitors from.....
Fulham Palace, Gunpowder, Banbury, Chester-Le-Street, Peterborough, Durham, Maidenhead, Tees Barrage, Hampstead Heath, Bristol and Townsville Australia!
I hope you enjoyed our beautiful park, fabulous volunteers and runners - look forward to seeing you in the future.
We had two milestone celebrations, congratulations to junior runner Reuben Kay completing his 10th run and Demi Yip completing her 50th run - can't wait to see you in your new t-shirts.
One of our regular runners Jacquie Kelly kicked off her 65th birthday with us - bringing tasty rocky road and chocolate cake for post run celebrations - Happy birthday Jacquie.
Also happy birthday to another wonderful lady and regular park runner Jan Baldwin.
Special thanks from me to Ruth who processed the results today.
