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!

Bressay parkrun #71 saw the return of sunshine and plenty of running visitors in the isles for the Simmer Dim half marathon. With the fine conditions, 76 people walked, ran or jogged the course and an impressive 28 were first timers to Bressay! Representatives of 16 different running clubs took part - our highest yet and clear evidence of the reach of the Shetland running scene.

Visitors this week came from all over the UK including Preston, Barton upon Humber, Aberdeen, Inverness, Penarth and Sheffield. A parkrun tourist, Scott Sumner, set the pace with an excellent time of 18:54 and there were 7 new personal bests recorded.

Bressay parkrun #70 was busy and bustling as usual with 42 people running, jogging or walking the course. We were thrilled to have 12 first timers to Bressay parkrun and a special mention must go to Cleo Gifford who completed her first park run just in time for her 6th birthday. Andrew Bailey also did well completing his first ever parkrun anywhere with a time of 20:23 and coming in third. Well done to you both!

Personal bests were few and far between this week but John Borrill, Wendy Borrill and Liz Polson all ran well to achieve new personal best times. In total, representatives of 7 different clubs took part with visitors from as far away as Sheffield.

We were delighted to hear that some Bressay parkrun regulars had excellent weekends elsewhere. Reece Black continued the trend of Shetlanders achieving good results at Kirkwall parkrun, earning first place with a time of 18:25. Bressay stalwarts Leanne Gear and Jamie Tomlinson ventured further afield and completed a parkrun in Canada.
