Good evening Chaddy Hall parkrunners.
This weeks run report is from Rachel Davis who is a Bushy parkrunner tourist.
It is great to see a report with a different view on us and shows how our little parkrun is a true Gem.
Thank you Rachel for the following report.
Hi Leeanne, John and team
Just wanted to thank you all for the friendliest welcome ever! I did want to name check the first female across the finish line this week to mark international womens day, so congrats Elise Evans.... a first timer too! I'm not sure if that means a first timer at Chadderton Hall or if it was your first EVER parkrun, but either way that's an awesome way to start out!
My time was pretty average on the whole, however given that there are FOUR hills and my local run is the very flat Bushy Park, I'm adding 4 mins to my time (no precise calculations involved in this decision whatsoever) meaning it would have been close to a PB on home turf... hooray!
Big thanks / Special mention to my crew.... Jan Curtis who adopted me from a random FB post on PR discussion group when I put a message out to the community about which PR in Manchester I could reach easily from my hotel & which fitted in with my alphabeteering.... Penny Meadowcroft and Tom Kasprowicz got on board and came with Jan came along for the ride, picked me up from my Manchester Picadilly hotel, took me for a pre-run coffee AND checked me onto the next available train back to the city afterwards. I really hope you can all plan a trip down to London and either we can work out the Bushy Pilgrimage or I'll come along to Finsbury Park with you all.... lovely to make some friends for my next trip to your fantastic city!
So I loved meeting you all, a fantastic and very pretty course and still surprisingly scenic even on lap four! And great to see 12 out of 16 of the volunteers were female this week in support of International Womens Day and celebrating women in sport. THIS GIRL CAN / US GIRLS DO!
Well done to everyone for getting up that hill four times (I only managed three running, walked one), CONGRATULATIONS on PBs and of course a Massive Cheer for Terry O'Neill for the big 5-0 and red t-shirt on the way!
See you all again! X
