Bressay parkrun #82 was certainly up there with the all time most rainy parkruns and the extremely wet conditions did not let up at any point before, during or after the run! 40 fantastically brave and hardy souls completed the course this morning and it was impressive to see 7 new personal bests among the results today. Well done everybody!
We welcomed 10 first timers to Bressay today from throughout the UK including Edinburgh, Fife, Nottingham and Hastings. We hope to see you all back on a dry and sunny day! Representatives of 7 clubs took part and leading the field was Bressay's own Richard Ingrey with a great time of 20:23. Charlotte Black was the first female home in a time of 21:02.
Bressay parkrun has the best volunteers and today was no exception! Despite the wet conditions, our volunteers were cheery and enthusiastic from beginning to end and we want to say a huge thank you to everybody who volunteered today. You very much earned your bacon rolls!
Thanks also to everybody for bearing with us when the barcode scanners went pear shaped due to the wet conditions!
