Once again we have decided not to run an event on Christmas Day this year.  We will, however, run an extra event on New Year's Day with a 9:00 am start.

Thank you for your continued support.

Strathclyde parkrun Event #369

Strathclyde parkrun run report: Event 369
Barbara Candy did her 100th parkrun today, this is her report:

'There are many things that I love about parkrun. Running through puddles, anticipation of a potential pb, hugs, smiles, encouragement, friendship, volunteering, chat, meeting new people, tea and toast in the cafe and routine on a Saturday morning.   I love that I can just be without fear of being criticised. That I can turn up and run, walk or stand in the rain scanning barcodes.  I have had so many great moments at parkrun but the highlight from my first 100 runs has to be tail walking with my Dad a couple of weeks ago something I hope to be able to do again in the future.

Today I ran my 100th parkrun surrounded by friends at a park I run in several times a week.  Been coordinating today for months with Maureen O Donnell who used to run at Strathclyde and was also running her 100th at Mount Barker in Australia where she now lives.  Today has been a good day.  Thank you Strathclyde parkrun volunteers and core team.

Strathclyde parkrun Event# 349

Scottish springtime arrived at Strathclyde on the last Saturday in March and with it we set a new attendance record of 327. The attendance was swollen by the arrival of G72 Tri club en masse. The G72 Tri club also supplied a number of volunteers. A huge thanks to the club for coming along to our parkrun.

The conditions were perfect and that was reflected in the fact that we had 68 PBs and it wasn't even pacer week! Among the PBs for parkrun regulars were Hazel Collings, Helen Galloway, Scott Walker, Donnie Inglis and on her 49th parkrun Karen McIndewar. Well done to everyone that managed to get a PB.

Milestone runs were done by Pauline Henderson (150), Barbara Stewart (50) and Rosemary Coia (50). Well done ladies! Well done also to Freddie Hughes, Kai Newall and Liam Miller who all entered the 10 club, well done guys.

Finally a huge thanks to THE ONE AND ONLY DREAM TEAM of volunteers. You were all awesome!
