Aberystwyth parkrun Event number 386 21st December 2019

Twas the Park Run before Christmas, when all through the park not a creature was stirring, not even a lark.

Who are we kidding? We had 95 Lords and Ladies a-leaping across puddles, and dancing across the finish line, not to mention 13 drummers runners ringing the bell for their PB’s.

In the mild but damp weather we had at least 5 tourist runners and 4 first timers, thank you to them for joining us today. Special mention  this week goes to our very own reluctant runner (her words not ours)  Julia Liebeschuetz  who raced across the finish line with nothing but a podcast about coffee to assist her, especially as her sprint marker had been removed last week. Well done Julia for her determination for that strong finish

The event was made possible by 16 volunteers:

Helen WILLIAMS • Anita WORTHING • Helen ENOCH • Karen WILLIAMS • Jane THOROGOOD • Nick THOMPSON • Jane E BAILEY • Lionel CURTIS • Sue FOWLER • Catrin HOPKINS • Philip THOMAS • Moss INNS • Bethan EVANS • Adam HEPBURN • Nicky HERRIOT • Michelle SYMES
