Bressay parkrun #67 was all about the first timers with 27 new people completing the course today! It therefore seemed fitting when Bryan Garrick led the runners home on his first parkrun outing and with a superb time of 18:08.

Altogether, 64 people ran, jogged and walked the course and the calm conditions made for 19 personal bests. Well done everyone! We were thrilled to welcome visitors from as far away as Glasgow, Lincoln, Cambridgeshire, and Manchester. Closer to home, it was great to see new runners and walkers from Gulberwick, Sandwick and Lerwick too.

Bressay parkrun is entirely run by vounteers and we hit a briliant milestone today as 142 people have now volunteered on an amazing 1,000 separate occasions! We know that our fantastic and friendly volunteers are what make Bressay parkrun so special and we'd like to say a massive thank you to you all, you're wonderful!
