A huge thank you to the 26 volunteers who made today's battle through the mud possible for the excellent 303 runners who successfully completed the Bracknell parkrun.
A pleasant temperature today. A quick stretch. A well presented briefing from Run Director Martin (upon his playground tower!)... and it wasn't long before we were lined up and... OFF!
I am still getting used to the new course however I see it has started to make an impression with the runners. It is already some nicknames as I overheard some fellow parkrunners christen the first couple of corners in the grass of the new route as "Mud-Fest" and "Mud Bath" - aptly named and certainly not suitable for a sprint finish!
I found myself particularly impressed with all of the junior parkrunners participating today. They worked very hard especially getting their little legs out of the sticky mud and up over the inclines. They sure seemed to make up for it with the downhill sections though! Many were very visible proudly wearing Junior-10 parkrun shirts, although I must question the colour choice: not many of the shirts were still looking very white by the end of the run!
Congratulations to Callum who finished 1st male for the fourth time at Bracknell with a fantastic new Personal Best.
Congratulations to Lisa Hale who finished 1st female for the first time - congratulations and we hope you'll come back to defend your title!
Congratulations to Lara on her 100th parkrun - what a lovely balloon!
