The atmosphere before the run was unusually but understandably subdued today, the usual small talk about the weather or getting in your excuses in early for why your run may be slower than you were hoping had been replaced by something much more serious. There were few of the handshakes, back-slapping, hugs and smiles that typically greet you, and most conversations were held at an awkward distance. If you didn’t know better, you would have thought we had all had a massive row. Fast forward 5K later and many of the smiles were back, and much of the tension and worry had visibly lifted, even if only temporarily. It appears that 5K of endorphins and importantly, a little parkrun normality in this crazy world had helped us find ourselves and each other again.
Until next time, spread kindness and love

Bramhall parkrun
Event number 595
29th February 2020
This week 399 people ran, jogged and walked the course, of whom 29 were first-timers and 23 recorded new Personal Bests. Representatives of 19 different clubs took part.

We did it! 1,000,000,000 km recorded at Bramhall parkrun, what an achievement! The first recorded 5K was back in April 2008 with Michael Halman crossing the finish in a superfast 16:23. 200,000 panting runners later Gretel Smith (JW10) sprinted across the same line to take us to 1 million kilometres, and that wasn’t her only accolade of the day, I think that post yesterday was our most popular (250+ likes and counting).
49599297583_9ec9bd2c10_c
Yesterday also marked our most popular February to date, and that was before the 5th Saturday and despite the fact, the month was the wettest on record and we had a storm nearly every week. Runners, walkers and especially volunteers give yourself a pat on your soggy backs.

Next week parkrun will be celebrating International Women’s Day, and we will have our full team of pacers out too.

RECORD-BREAKING FEBRUARY!!, 1,717 completed the 5K, beating our previous 2015 record of 1,536 and we have another run to go too.
This week’s run report is by Lee Barnard

This week I visited Bramhall parkrun for my 85th different parkrun location, it was a fresh morning in Stockport with the Hall bathed in sunshine.

Milestones this week were Gary Howarth with the arbitrary milestone running his 300th parkrun, T-shirts winging their way to runners in the coming weeks from parkrun HQ, are Paul Smith and Nick Does running their 250th parkruns, Darren Taylor and Dominic Hughes running their 100th parkruns, Carla Godwin running her 50th and Cian Philpott running her 10th parkrun. Congratulations and welcome to 7 people who joined the parkrun World by doing their first parkrun this weekend.

Adam Waldron was the first finisher in a time of 16:44, with a new PB, the first female was Sofia Tavini in 20:15. Highest age grade was claimed by Barry Archbold with 81.13%, followed by Sharon Johnstone in 77.58%.
