Event number 436 – 10th August 2019

Welcome everyone to this week’s run report. Windy conditions made the course a bit challenging for everyone this morning but everyone got round okay. This week 350 people ran, jogged and walked the course, of whom 41 were first timers and 32 recorded new Personal Bests. Well done to everyone who achieved a PB today.

We are very grateful to our 23 volunteers who made this event happen. Our Volunteers this week were: Janice COOK • Ian OLDACRE • Colin STOKES • James MASTERS • Christopher EDWARDS • Ian BEVERIDGE • Graham COOK • Wendy BEVERIDGE • Kelly STOKES • Reg BRETT • Kev YOUNG • Maurice KING • Mandy ATKINSON-WILLES • Bas JACOBS • Christina SEARLE • Rebekah SEARLE • Jack SEARLE • Amelie SEARLE • Raymond SEARLE • Charlie MCCOY • Trevor LEWIS • Paris JONATHAN • Devon STEWART

Special mention goes to Maurice King who before the start cleared the course around the lakes area from fallen branches and twigs. It was also Maurice’s 200th parkrun today, no t-shirt, but congratulations. A few Milestone T-Shirts were reached today. So congratulations to: Joseph SHOWLER 100th parkrun, Brendan CLARKE 100th parkrun, David PENFOLD 100th parkrun, Leon WILDE 100th parkrun, and Gareth COPPING 250th parkrun. Also Birthday wishes from Andover parkrun go to tourist Michael NOBLE from Leeds who reached his 80th Birthday today.

That’s it from me. See you all next week.
