Run Report for 11th November
We had a parkrun with a bit of a difference this week; no finish tokens made for some interesting and impromptu place recordings - apologies to all of you that we covered in sharpie ink, I'm reliably informed it will wash off eventually!
We also had some stunning pictures of our run taken this week - the autumn colours and the beauty of the estate come across so clearly; if you haven't yet looked through them all, then grab yourself a cup of tea, a choccy bicky or 2 and put your feet up for half an hour - you're in for a treat!
However, this week 338 people ran, jogged and walked the course, of whom 50 were first timers and 27 recorded new Personal Bests. The event was made possible by 37 people, who gave up their run so that you could complete yours. If you haven't volunteered yet please step up to help out; I promise there are people far busier than you who already do so on a regular basis. Go on ... be a giver, no-one really likes a taker!
Today's full results and a complete event history can be found on the Wimpole Estate parkrun Results Page. However, Brian O' Connor was our first runner over the line in 18:17. Lindsay Porter was our first lady in a time of 21:31 and Miles Blackwell was our first junior, completing his 5k in 19:37. Congratulations to all!
We also had some significant runs this week with Phil Whitbread completing his 100th run and I completed my 100th Volunteer.
Thanks also to all of you who supported the National Trust with their Christmas Fayre.
Wimpole Estate parkrun started on 12th January 2013. Since then 8,804 participants have completed 60,424 parkruns covering a total distance of 302,120 km, including 10,121 new Personal Bests.
Until next week ...
p.s and to all of us RD - #DFTB!
