parkrun #127

Well done to our 60 walkers and runners this week, the weather was a little overcast but seemed cool and still, with no wind on the pier. (I might be wrong about this, there is always a little wind down there)

Welcome to our visitors today including Duncan Bain from Thousand Hills parkrun in South Africa.

We were so excited to celebrate Jim Ritchie’s 100th parkrun (95 of these were at Alness) and he came across the line with a fantastic time of 34.17. Jim’s 100th balloon was camera shy it took off not long after the runners, maybe it was disappointed Jim thought it would hold him back.

Another exciting milestone today was Gillian Mackay reaching her 50th parkrun (46 in Alness) in not quite a PB of 27.37 which she can’t blame on the balloon because she wouldn’t run with it either.

After all this excitement who would believe that we could have more!

15 minutes later here comes our first runner with a course record of 15.02! what an incredible run Ross, well done!
