Castle Park parkrun Event #102

Hello!

It was another lovely morning, for another lovely Castle Park parkrun and on Saturday morning 425 people ran, jogged and walked the course, of whom 37 were first timers. I hope all the first timers enjoyed their run and all the tourists enjoyed their time at Castle Park and come back to visit us soon.

As usual our parkruns don’t go ahead without the help of of lovely volunteers, and this week the 27 people who have their names in lights are as follows;

Chris CHEW • Sarah SHUCKSMITH • Matthieu MILITON • Jane MANSFIELD • Harry MANSFIELD • Nicholas YEADON • Charles BAILE • Vicki HEIDKE • Helen GLENISTER • Elliott WARRINGTON • Alyson SHINNICK • Josh STATHAM • Scott NUGENT • William ROWE • Simon DEWHURST • Tory FOOT • Laura MELLING • Rachel RISSBROOK • David FOOT • Sophie STOCK • Robert POWER • Karl SIBLEY • Paul ANDREW • Fergus SHINNICK • Natalia LEIGHTON • Cicely REEVES HOODLESS • Raymond STRACH

If you are thinking about volunteering please do give it ago, we don’t bite and it is a lot of fun!

I think this week shall have to be renamed milestones week as there were quite a few! All these people need a big round of applause;
Lisa Moss, Alison Malcolm, Andrew Clark and Elizabeth Philips who all achieved 50 parkruns. Neil Sanderson reached his 100th whilst Beth Hart reached her 150th! And little Harriet Penketh who not only reached 10 parkruns and brought along some lovely biscuits, but got a new PB to top it all off! Well done to everyone, hopefully there'll be many more milestones to come.

One quick note from as the fair is still in town next weekend, it'll be another Castle Gardens start next weekend as well.

Right well I believe that's all from me - not to long a ramble this week!

Simon is in charge next week so i'll hand over proceedings to him, have a lovely week!

Over and out

Two favours I'd like to ask is please do not approach the time-keepers for your time as this is very difficult to manage and causes errors in the results for everyone, and PLEASE return the finish tokens - today we again lost 3 tokens!
