Burnham and Highbridge parkrun greeted 245 participants this morning with a very warm and pleasant welcome. Joining our local and regular parkrunners, we had visitors from Cwmbran, Crewe, Mount Edgecombe, Clacton, Norfolk, Portsmouth and Massachusetts, USA to enjoy the run and gorgeous conditions for all. Thank you all for attending today and we hope everyone had an enjoyable run.
Congratulations to Pete Gibbons on completing his 50th parkrun today. Additionally, Russell Jones completed his 100th Burnham and Highbridge parkrun. Memorable milestones for both Pete and Russell and many more parkruns to look forward to.
A polite reminder to all our parkrunners please to be mindful of other users when participating in this weekly Saturday morning activity. We don’t have priority over other people when parkrun commences and the section through Apex Park is narrow, especially at the start and early stages of the course where everyone starts on mass. Importantly, we want everyone to enjoy their run, but complete a safe run where we can avoid contact with members of the public who are equally entitled to be in the area and follow their individual pastimes or to enjoy the local environment.
A big thank you to all our volunteers who made today’s event so successful. There are many roles on our offer and the core team will make everyone feel welcome. Some of the roles may seem daunting, but as Christine Hall demonstrated, each role can be very fulfilling. Our thanks to Christine today for putting some of our seasoned timekeepers to shame by accurately recording every runner today. If you could fulfil a volunteer role in future weeks, please let us know by contacting firstname.lastname@example.org.
Our first runners home was Richard Saupe in 18:25, and Charlotte Simmons in a personal best time of 21:42, 23rd overall. However, our thanks go to everyone for making today’s event so successful.
