Hello Wimpolians and visitors!
What a Saturday we had!! We had estimated starting at 9.15am but we had not counted on the rain and it was distinclty chilly!! I ran the course at 730am and got soaking wet and only now I stopped shivering.
Thank you to all the clubs who turned up with their flags, vests and banter. We had great feedback.
The run saw Brian O'Connor finish first in a speedy 17:52, first Male Junior was Lucas Blackwell in 20:35 and Carla Brown was the first lady in 21:08. First Female Junior was Emily Talbot in 22:27. Great running!!
Our pacers did a sterling job - if you fancy pacing do let us know, it is fun and very rewarding if you hit your time and pull others along to reach new PBs.
As ever our thanks go to the marshalls without whom Parkrun would not exist. Please try and volunteer, if you are unsure ask the Run Director, he/she will be happy to explain what is required.
Harry is in the directing operations next Saturday so you could not be in better hands.
Have a great week and happy running
Debs and James
