Not sweltering today but thank goodness it was warmer than the last few weeks. We shared the lake this morning with 60+ anglers competing in a carp match with a top prize of £2000 so our runners took care to tiptoe past and not frighten the fish!
Many congratulations to Jackie Lockyer and Chantal Harp who both completed their 50th parkruns and to Colin Bates who completed his 100th run and came in as the first unassisted runner - a great performance. We also had a load of PBs, so well done to everybody.
An inspiration to us all was Alan Littlejohns walk round the lake. Returning after a serious illness he completed with a huge smile on his face! Great to see you back on the course Alan.
Next week is the Easter parkrun - donations of mini eggs and spot prizes very welcome. Please give to run director James Marshall on the day and tell him what you want your prize awarding for.
Many thanks to all the brilliant volunteers today - without them parkrun doesn't happen so if you can volunteer please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org There are some vacancies for next week, have a look at: http://www.parkrun.org.uk/tamarlakes/futureroster/
