Worthing Parkrun event number 116 on 5th October 2018

After a month away from Parkrun duties it was great to be back this week amongst the friendliest group of people you could ever wish to meet. And that, coupled with the fact it was ‘International Parkrun Day’ to celebrate 14 years of Parkrun, made it an even greater privilege to be Run Director for the day.

It was with sadness that we heard the news that we had lost one of our Worthing Parkrun community earlier in the week. Charlotte Henley-Collins passed away aged just 43. Her friend, Suzie Davies, and some fellow parkrunnners were wearing pink to highlight breast cancer awareness and were running in Charlotte’s memory this week. We send our prayers, thoughts and condolences to Charlotte’s family.

As we head into autumn, it was great to see a full roster of volunteers once again and 458 people ready to take on the course. Nearly 25% recorded a PB this week (something to do with the sea air maybe?) One of those was Nathan Freeman (pictured below) who smashed his PB and went under 20 mins for the first time with 19:47 – Congratulations Nathan.

Here's Nathan powering towards the finish line

It was a beautiful balmy morning for our 111th parkrun, with Sunny Worthing definitely living up to it's name! Thank you to runner Paul Woodroof & volunteer Silvia Bortolazzi for some of the great photos on our Flickr page showing our parkrun looking so stunning!

Worthing Parkrun event #111 on 1st September 2018

At Worthing we love hearing where our tourists have travelled from & giving them a shout out in the briefing. One of our tourists this week takes some beating, as he had cycled from Wanstead Flats to Worthing, leaving home at 2am, and was then cycling home again afterwards! Although not before helping us with clearing up - thank you Andrew Howard and well done on cycling to & from Worthing! As you can see from his barcode, Andrew is an enthusiastic cyclist and is currently cycling to parkruns within a 100 mile radius of his home parkrun to tick a few more tourism runs off his list!
