Once again we were blessed with beautiful sunshine and fast ground at Wotton Community Parc as we celebrated the 70th Birthday of the NHS! To mark the occasion we had birthday cake and fancy dress - I'm pleased to say even our Event Director Dave scrubbed up well to take on the course!
With surgical precision 76 amazing parkrunners cut their way through the grass to complete the course. On our list this week were 12 first timers and parkrun tourists joining us from from Bournemouth, Bognor and Australia!
This week 16 of our runners recorded new Personal Bests including regular volunteer Mary Lennox who took more than 2 minutes off her previous best time - well done Mary!
Taking care of operations this week were 19 of Wotton's most enthusiastic volunteers, including Dave Draisey who was volunteering for the 50th time - thanks Dave! This week's team was: Sheila Turner, Lisa Cropper, Chris Anthony, Jennifer Anthony, Tracey Strickland, Ann Fitzjohn, David Fitzjohn, Julie JENNER, Stella Laing, Pauline Draisey,Leanne Fare, Michael Brown, Sue Smith, Carl Jenner, Dave Draisey, Christine Gordon, William Gordon, Helen Lennox, Max Laing
If you would like to give volunteering a go we would love to have you with us, so please do send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org and join the team!
Don't forget that due to Party in the Parc festival taking place in the Community Parc, next week we will be running our alternative course around KLB school field and to go with the party theme, once again we are inviting you to run or volunteer in fancy dress! We look forward to seeing you there!
