This week we had 282 people running, jogging or walking at Ashford, and as I offered to write the run report, I thought I’d make it about the numbers and new **rule** for us all to note and reflect upon.
25 first timers - welcome to parkrun. We hope you enjoyed it and that you will be back to join us again soon!
51 of you recorded a new PB! Well done you are awesome!
20 unknowns - 4 words for you - Don’t Forget Your Barcode.
23 volunteers - A special thank you as always, today was only made possible because of you.
5 different clubs with “Ashford” in their name, these being Ashford & District RRC (12), Ashford AC (5), Ashford Fit Club (2), Ashford Striders (19) and Ashford Tri Club (7) - No rivalry there I’m sure but well done Striders - A great turnout.
Finally, we all know the rules of parkrun but today for my 151st parkrun I learnt a new one. Do not catch up with last week’s RD whilst she is running, say hello, have nice chat and then overtake her and continue your run. Apparently the “overtake” is not allowed and this only applies to said RD…?
So Becca, here it is in the run report as promised. If every one reads this and abides by it then next time you run you’ll have a 1st place finish for sure…. x
**totally unofficial rule**
