Happy New Year to all our runners and walkers. What a fabulous morning - dry at last, minimal wind and even a scrap of blue in the sky!! We had a record turn out (as did Bideford & Barnstaple parkrun's today) with lots of people visiting us from across the country, Bristol (first finisher), Harrow (first Lady), Southampton, and locals from Tamar Trails, Seaton and many more, even Canada. Congratulations to those who did the double - Bideford at 09.00 and Tamar Lakes at 10.30ish (toilet queue to blame!) Thankfully everyone arrived in good time and safely.
This week 215 people (207 was our previous record) went round the course, of whom 73 were first timers and 22 recorded new Personal Bests. Representatives of 29 different clubs took part.
Thank you for all your kind comments too, we know we are very lucky to have a one lap, scenic course and look forward to welcoming visitors back again in the future. parkrun is not possible without the brilliant team of today's volunteers so many thanks to them Belinda WALKER • Robert WALKER • Pauline GEEN • Rowan DURRANT • Anita RAYER • Jane BUNNING • Carl KEENAN • Debbie STOKES • Dylan RUDLING • Graham KEAT • Phillip • Andree CARTER.
