Another great parkrun, with our second highest ever turnout of 428 participants. The numbers were boosted by 107 First Timers (probably another record). 27 of these were doing their first ever parkrun, the numbers are still growing. Hope you enjoyed the experience, and will come again.
There were loads of visitors, and we had our first coach load of 29 parkrun tourists from Les Croupiers Running club in Cardiff on their way to the Plymouth Half. They even brought a cake to celebrate Helen Hubbacks 100th parkrun with us, which was greatly appreciated by the volunteers.
We had 37 volunteers today boosted by our ever popular pacers (most kept to their correct times) and helped those keen to get a PB this week.
Thank You to all the volunteers today:
Vincent Reginald HUXTABLE • Philip BLAND • Tom POPE • Christy LONGLEY • Stuart ANDERSON • Steven ALDER • Simon SHORROCK • Tracey BENTON • Brian BEALE • Mark BENTON • Matt POWELL • Kathy BEARD • Georgina DELLA VALLE • Philip HOBBS • Allan PENDLETON • Max BOYES • Adrian SMITH • Colin HOLDOM • Patricia SEABROOK • Lisa WOOD • Freddie HORWOOD • David HORWOOD • Jeanine RANSOM • Pete MANNING • Paul THOMAS • Vicky BATCHELOR • Paul TOMLINSON • Mary CLOTHIER • Doug WARD • Ian BOOTH • Katrina BUFTON • Mel HUGGINS • Georgina HAINSBY • Theo GASKIN • Adrian DAVIS • Jon WILLIAMS • Alan PARKINSON
