While the rest of the core team went on an adventure Chris and Pete were left in charge.

There were lots of milestones today;

First up father and son comedy duo Pete and Ollie Campbell who achieved their 250th parkrun milestone together. Pete and Ollie have run here since Event number 2 in 2014 and have completed more than half of the 250 here at Chippnham. They are both prolific volunteers and can often be seen here early in the morning setting up when Team Archer are out gallavanting - er I mean touring!

Congratulations to Julie Bean for achieving her 250th parkrun milestone. She has been running here since September 2014 and has completed 237 of the 500 here at Chippenham. She has also volunteered an impressive 44 times.

Next up Lisa Henzl who has achieved her 100th parkrun milestone. Lisa has been running here since October 2016 and has completed 95 of the 100 here at Chippenham.

Congratulations also go to Jack Toogood for achieving his 100th parkrun milestone. Jack has been running here since October 2015 and has completed 90 of those here at Chippenham. 

Finally congratulations go to Richard Morten for achieving his 50th parkrun milestone. Richard has been running here since September 2017 and has completed 33 of those here at Chippenham.

This week started off drizzly, then after a few minutes a horrible blustery wind appeared delivering a freezing, heavy rain.....but despite that 198 people ran, jogged and walked the course, getting their feet wet in the massive puddle that appeared on the path. They braved the muddy meadow - with the worst mud I have seen in 6 years! We welcomed 8 first timers to parkrun and 24 tourists from other parkruns (incl Dudley and Bristol). 4 runners recorded new Personal Bests. Representatives of 29 different clubs took part.

Thanks to the wonderful 18 volunteers who made this event happen:

Heather PERRY • Harry PEAKE • Pete CAMPBELL • Chris HUNT • Neil ADDISON • Andrew NICHOLSON • Daniel BEAN • Jules PEARSON • John PARKER • Alwyn ROYALL • Edward SATCHELL • Rita LINDSAY • Nigel SHIRES • Celia STEVENS • Katie CROFT • Kate STEWART • David WEALES • Suzanne MACDONALD
