The morning was calm, cold and icy as 34 hardy runners set off. Today’s field included one local first-timer and an impressive five PBs were recorded. Representatives of 4 different clubs took part. However, most worthy of note must be the three Bressay stalwarts who were each notching up their 50th parkrun at this event - Janice Hamer, Andrea Jeromson and June Moulder. For Janice, it was a double celebration as she was the first lady to cross the line. First male, Norrie Lyall, continued a rich vein of form to set his fourth successive PB. Trainee Run Director Moraig Lyall kept proceedings moving along under the experienced eye of Andrew Fox. As always, the Speldiburn Café was the final stop for many of today’s participants, where coffee, cakes and bacon rolls aplenty were passing across the counter.
The event was made possible by 17 volunteers:
Andrew FOX • Hannah BATESON • John BATESON • Ann THOMSON • Kathy KELLY • Noel KELLY • Anne BATESON • Kenneth GROAT • Wendy BORRILL • Norrie LYALL • Moraig LYALL • Susie FOX • Elaine HEINRICH • Julie JOHNSON • Val TURNER • Caroline HENDERSON • Holden HALL • Valerie MORRISON

Bressay parkrun #92 was cold! 35 people ran, jogged and walked the course with 14 hardy volunteers making it all possible. First timers this week came from as far afield as Australia and the slightly more local, Bressay! The cool, calm conditions helped a whopping 12 people to achieve personal bests - well done to you all. Congratulations also to Bressay stalwart Elizabeth Gifford who completed her 50th parkrun today!

Fun fact of the week: 735 personal bests have now been recorded at Bressay parkrun. You lot just keep getting better and better!
