Oh, what a difference a week makes! We took a break, enjoyed the sunshine and came back to find that winter had returned to the course - with many of us misjudging the number of layers needed to keep warm having prematurely put away our big coat.
The amazing volunteers braved the bracing wind to marshal, time, clap and cheer home 145 brilliant parkrunners. The splodgy puddle on the back straight was back with a vengeance but didn't hinder 16 personal bests. We also welcomed 20 first timers who had the pleasure of the puddle for the first (and second) time.
First across the line, for the third time, was Nicholas representing the JM11-14 category. If you're wondering what this means, it's for Junior Males between the ages of 11 and 14 years old. Leading the way in the other categories were Conor (JM10), Juliette (JW10) and Lola (JW11-14).
Lola received her latest milestone wristband along with Noah, Joe, Sam, Samuel and Robert. Well done to you all!
If your child is working towards a very coveted milestone wristband and you find yourself wanting to find out how it all works, then why not become a regular volunteer? We're looking to spread the load in the core team by training up new Run Directors (the ones in the blue and white vest with the microphone). It's not scary at all - the core team is very supporting and will guide you through the process. If you're interested then come and have a chat. We'll be in the café thawing out our feet by the fire until summer reappears!
