It was a wonderful morning for a run! The sun was shining, the colours were simply beautiful and the rain held off until well into the afternoon. We had 328 folk at Wimpole with 16 of those being first timers - and 5 of those being brand new to parkrun. We also had 37 PBs - with 7 of those earned by people who have run over 50 parkruns. Congratulations to all of our PB runners, with shout outs to those 7; namely: Nick Green (183), William Law (104), Fiona Richardson (101), Clare Regale-Day (79), Dan Haverly (77), Diane Haverly (76) (both visitors from Crosby!) and Ian Stemp.
The event was made possible by 28 volunteers and we thank you all! Please do offer to help; it was hard to fill the roster for Saturday's run, which makes the week more stressful than necessary for all of our volunteer co-ordinators.
Today's full results and a complete event history can be found on the Wimpole Estate parkrun Results Page. Our headlines were that Lee Pretlove crossed over the line in first place for the 20th time in 17:52. Our fastest female was Matilda Taylor (who was also our fastest female junior this week 15-17). She finished in 13th place with a time of 20:55. Our fastest male junior was Daniel Davey (15-17) who finished in 18th place in a time of 21:18. The young ladies certainly out ran the rest of the female field this week with our top 2 females being juniors and Lauren Davison being the fastest adult female this week.
We didn't have many significant runs this week, we did have Rob Smith who completed his 50th and Emma Sarginson who completed her 10th.
Until next week ...

Just a note to say that we will not be hosting a parkrun on 1st January as the Estate is not open. Other local parkruns are though, so please do check the parkrun main website for a list of who is and is not hosting one and their start times. This is the only day of the year when you are allowed to get 2!
(Go on; you know you want to!)
Just to let everyone know that as the Estate is not open on Christmas Day, we will not be hosting a parkrun on the 25th December. Our Christmas parkrun celebration (dressing up definitely welcome!) will be on 22nd Dec.
