Castle Park parkrun
Event number 107
12th October 2019
This week 301 people ran, jogged and walked the course in wet and slippery conditions, of whom 24 were first timers and 16 recorded new Personal Bests. With these conditions we did not expect too many PB’s but well done to those who have improved on previous times. Representatives of 21 different clubs took part.
A BIG Shoutout to all First Timers who braved the conditions and completed their first parkrun, together with the 26 selfless volunteers who gave their time to make this event possible for you.
Thank you to all the volunteers:
Kathryn CHAPMAN • Jane MANSFIELD • Harry MANSFIELD • Andrea SPENCER • Luke SHEPHERD • Rosemary NUGENT • Charles BAILE • Charné SMITH • Jared SMITH• Kobus SMITH • Ian CHAPMAN • Helen GLENISTER • John EMMETT • Suzanne MASON • Scott NUGENT • Andrew FARMERY • Tory FOOT • Jessica BOXFORD • Jenny PENNELL • Seamus POWER • Christopher BROOKS • Karl SIBLEY • Paul ANDREW • Henry WARD • Cicely REEVES HOODLESS • Martin HOWE

This brings to an end yet another successful parkrun event. Before I go I also want to thank all of you who participate and who make it possible to continue delivering the parkrun week after week after week. We received a glowing commendation this morning from a park user thanking parkrun for what they have done for the community offering this event and also to the friendly parkrunners and volunteers who are always ready with a smile and a greet. On this positive note I hand over to Tory who will direct the proceedings next week.
Good luck for the week ahead, especially those that are participating in events ranging from 5km’s to half marathons tomorrow and hope to see you all next week.
