Stonehaven parkrun #73: 13/1/18 – Run-Walk-Talk

This is Jennifer who came along to Stonehaven parkrun for the first time this week and ran-walked with our run-walk-talk leader, Caroline. She finished with a HUGE smile on her face and commented afterwards how proud she felt of herself, and so you should Jennifer! Caroline will be run-walk-talking next Saturday too so come along and feel as awesome as Jennifer did! #loveparkrun 26685220_1791129504244561_4598567788786302843_o

Event # 67 – 09/12/2017 – The One without the Hill!

It snowed on the Friday night so Vikki got up early (thanks Vikki!) and inspected the course. It was mostly lovely crunchy snow apart from the hill so we opted to change the course to four low level laps. We may have only had 10 runners today but we had a lot of fun in the snow covered park:

Consensus of opinion was “bring the hill back”! There were 0 first timers and 0 recorded new Personal Bests!

We also had 10 awesome volunteers, thanks guys! 

Michael BARKER • Ailsa BARKER • Ali ROBERTSON • Kate ROBERTSON • Catriona HARROW • Louise KELLY • Vicky MCGILLIVRAY • Darroch ANDERSON

Congratulations and thanks to Catriona who has now joined the 25 volunteer club!
