Belton House parkrun
Event number 162
6th July 2019
The Grantham Running Club takeover provided a perfect opportunity for me to take the mantle of Run Director, this was great training readying me for the start-up of junior parkrun which will take place in Wyndham Park this autumn. With regular park run attendee & fellow Run Director Andrew Pask assisting me, the event went relatively smoothly, with only the weather choosing to not play ball. Rain however was not going to stop the 44 volunteers, who were mostly members of GRC from ensuring that the event was a great success, with people commenting on how much they enjoyed having pacers to assist them in trying to obtain their PB’s and that the marshals were a great encouragement. I would like to take this opportunity to thanks everyone for their help and patience in assisting me to be Run Director this week and a huge thank you to the GRC members who volunteered and also brought some wonderful cake for us to enjoy afterwards! I look forward to seeing you more at future parkrun events.
CAKE! and there was plenty more of that we shared round the parkland before cutting this tasty bake in the cafe and shared round
