Sorry this is a little late,I was hoping Derby might score
Overly optimistic perhaps, I think that will happen next in 2024
Today we welcomed the Stubo to the 200 volunteering at Birkenhead ranks
A club that 100% doesn`t include Tom Hanks
The fan of the Vale that always wears the shorts
I do not know though if he likes the liquorice allsorts.
If you would like the chance to wear the lovely coloured hi vis
You don`t need to get in a tiz
Or even drink some fizz
Just email us at Birkenhead@parkrun.com
And we will add you to the roster with aplomb
Aplomb is a great word isn`t it? Anyway welcome to this week`s run report. Thanks for coming today,we really do appreciate it as if you didn`t we`d have to do a squirrel parkrun and that would be terrible. It`s time for the results I hear you say.
Our first finisher (male) was Neil Oakes of Mersey Tri in a new pb of 17:30! Next up was Steven Leslie of Village Road Runners AC in 17:37 then Mike Jones of Victoria Park Harriers and Tower Hamlets AC who ran a new pb of 17:45!
Our first finisher (female) as Jen Ellison with a new pb of 20:11! (15th) Then it was Sophie Haslam of West Cheshire AC who ran 21:04 (28th) and Claire Campbell who finished in 22:25 (53rd).
