Event number 455 – 21st December 2019

Welcome everyone to this week’s run report. Despite the recent rain we had a dry morning and no wind which always helps. We returned to the Winter Course which changes it round a bit. So well done to everyone who completed today’s Andover parkrun. This week 262 people ran, jogged and walked the course, of whom 20 were first timers and 15 recorded new Personal Bests.

We are very grateful to our 24 marvellous volunteers who made this week’s event possible. Our wonderful volunteers this week were: Bas JACOBS  •  Charlie MCCOY  •  Christina SEARLE  •  Colin STOKES  •  Colin YOUNGER  •  Gaynor BRINDLEY  •  Ian BEVERIDGE  •  Janice COOK  •  Jeff BIRKS  •  Jenny CASSON  •  Julie JACOBS  •  Karl GAILER  •  Kathleen WEYERS  •  Kelly STOKES  •  Kelvin MASON  •  Kerry WARDELL  •  Louise BROWN  •  Martin HUGHES  •  Martin KAIRYS  •  Matthew BENNETT  •  Maurice KING  •  Rebecca MCCOY  •  Simon EGGINGTON  •  Wendy BEVERIDGE.
