#82 Run Report

As my daughter was finishing her final week at Exeter university, we timed it so that we could do some parkrun tourism. Turns out that Torbay Veloparkrun was a great choice. We arrived to find lots of trailers and police in attendance. Thanks to the Torbay team and the police in making sure the run went ahead and we were all safe! Good community spirit there.
Anyway on to the run. Myself, husband and daughter arrived in time to take in the atmosphere and gave a look at the route. There was a friendly marshal who, on spotting my Gunnersbury shirt chatted away and told us about the course, his move further down south and generally gave the parkrun a nice atmosphere, thank you. From a few came many and soon we were crowded around listening to a lively new runners briefing, well done to the mini new briefer who clearly knew the parkrun rules. A deserved clap at the end and we made our way to the start with the other runners. A good breeze took the edge off the heat and it was an enjoyable 2 laps around the velopark then around a field and back. Not a PB for me but an enjoyable experience, thanks team, the marshals were great!
The breeze obviously helped some runners because of the 248, 38 achieved PBs well done. There were 68 first timers to Torbay, and 11 ran their first ever parkrun, well done to all of you!
Special mentions to Charlotte PENFOLD who achieved an amazing age-grading of 84.79% on her first visit finishing in 17:32. Also to Alex FARQUHARSON who finished in 21:54 (JM 11-14) and Iona FARQUHARSON (JW11-14) who achieved another great age grading of 86.46% finishing in 18.50. Fantastic running!
We definitely enjoyed our visit to Torbay and hope to bring the rest of the family down again at some point.
Thanks again to all the team of volunteers for their hard work.

Run Report July 21st

Torbay Velopark parkrun
Event number 81
21st July 2018

I confess to being a little excited when I saw it was raining on parkrun day......however it didn't last and the heat won through. Am I allowed to say that I will have a better appreciation when winter comes??

This was week two of our alternate course due to work going on at the astroturf, it seems to be a very popular alternative due to the absence of the hilly small field.

It is great to speak to people who are doing some parkrun tourism and it actually helps with my geography which is fair to say is appalling, I do like to try and guess what county they're from by the name on their apricot parkrun top.
