Event 205 – 15th September 2018

Well here was me thinking all the tourists had gone home but no - a fair smattering of holidaymakers joined us this lovely morning to run, walk, jog around the lake. And it was a lovely morning made more special by our wonderful volunteers and especially Katie Taylor who achieved her 25 t-shirt today. Thank You Katie and thank you to all our volunteers who turn out on a regular basis. It would be really nice to see some new faces giving it a try - all the roles are really simple and training is always given.

Our first finisher demolished my guesstimate by a whole minute. I do like to play this little game and the first female finisher also scuppered my guess with what was a close run thing with the second female finisher - 4 seconds in it!

Looking down the list a plethora of PBs from 19 of you. Congratulations to you all.

Hope to see lots of you next week and if you are a holidaymaker returning home please tell everyone about us - we love tourists.

Event #204 8th September, 2018

The rain dried up as soon as the Run Director had completed the course check, not a moment before,  making excellent running conditions.

So many smiles this Saturday morning, from the stag party with the stag dressed in pink from top to toe complete with tutu, to the wonderful tourists from far and wide, a great representation from Taunton, both running and volunteering. Thank you. And as always our regular runners and volunteers who make Tamar Lakes parkrun what it is. A great place to be on a Saturday morning.

Event number 202; 25th August 2018

We organised a dry sunny day for parkrun today! The lake looks so much better in the sunshine. We welcomed lots of lovely parkrun tourists from Cambridge, Leicestershire, Worcester, St Helens, Ware and many more. We introduced them to the Devon/ Cornwall friendly rivalry as our course sits in both counties. Hope you have a great holiday! A fabulous effort by under 10's Eli and Jacob who came all the way to Devon/Cornwall to do their very first parkrun.

A special mention to Nicky Blythe who had her 100th parkrun today and provided a fabulous chocolate cake (à la Katie Taylor) for everyone - sorry for fluffing the announcement - a senior moment from the RD!!  Stuart Lockyer also celebrated his 50th. Special mentions to 3 locals; Ben Lovejoy for completing the 5km course and walking the furthest he has, without crutches, since his knee repair, Katy Fairhurst for her PB - fantastic! and Anita Rayer, PB, who is on fire!

Event 200 11/8/18

We celebrated our 200th Parkrun today with wearing our county colours as our lovely Parkrun crosses the Devon and Cornwall border.

Lovely to see so many visiting Parkrunners and a couple of first timers and with great comments on our course!!

Andree baked some amazing scones and sold in aid of Breast Cancer Care. You could choose whether they were jam and creamed the Devonshire or Cornish way!!!

The Donations amounted to £76.36 in the Devon way and £54.10 the Cornish way!! With more donations still rolling in.

Many thanks to the ever brilliant team of volunteers without whom, there would be no Parkrun.

Here is this weeks results:
