6th January 2018 – parkrun 170

What an absolute belter of a morning. Sunshine, no wind, no rain - just a teeny, weeny bit of frost and ice to worry about!! Thank you everyone for walking across the bridge. It was the most surreal moment to see you all walking across the bridge but it was the right thing to do.  Happily no one broke anything and we only had one faller who hurt her knee so I didn't have a mountain for Health and Safety forms to complete.

A huge parkrun welcome to all our 37 first timers this morning. I do hope you enjoyed it and we look forward to seeing you all again next week and I have no idea how it happened but we even had 4 new personal bests so congratulation to you.

I embarrassingly forgot to thank all our volunteers again today - shame on me. Without volunteers parkrun doesn't happen and we always need more of you . There's a free tshirt in it if you do 25 stints :)

Today was the last Tamar Lakes parkrun for 2017 and a lovely turn out on a blustery day. We had a Colvin take over for first finisher Levi with a new course PB and trouncing his Dad - Come on Brent you can do better ! Then lo and behold first lady finisher was Mum Sara Colvin on her 100th parkrun. Congratulations Sara.

It was lovely once again to see visitors and first timers alike and we hope you enjoyed 2017 as much as we did. Here's some Tamar Lakes stats for you:

Volunteers = 131 on 636 occasions

Runners = 1789 completing 5775 laps between them

New Registrations = 426 who got their barcode for the first time.

Here's looking forward to a magnificent 2018.

Tamar Lakes parkrun 163, 25/11/17

A chilly morning and smattering of frozen hail made the slippery bridge extra slippery! We had quite a few first timers and tourists so hope you enjoyed our course. Many thanks to the volunteers who withstood the biting wind at the finish and for those of you who volunteered for coming weeks.

We just have a timer vacancy for 2 December so please message here or contact tamarlakeshelpers@parkrun.com if you want to be part of the fantastic team that manages parkrun this Saturday or can volunteer for following weeks. See the roster at http://www.parkrun.org.uk/tamarlakes/futureroster/

A quick note to say we are holding parkrun Saturday 23 December (fancy dress strongly encouraged and there will be a prize!) and 30 December as usual. However, we will have an extra parkrun on New Year's Day 1 January 2018. THIS WILL BE AT 10.30am. Bideford will be holding their parkrun at 9.00am so there is the opportunity for a double.
