Run Report – Event number 122 – the windy one

Clacton Seafront parkrun
Event number 122
16th March 2019

It was an extremely windy but dry morning for the 122 Clacton Seafront parkrun. 138 people ran, jogged along with a couple of dogs. We welcomed 16 first timers and amazingly 21 people recorded new Personal Bests. This brings the total number of people to have completed Clacton Seafront parkrun to 2,817 and the number of Personal Bests achieved to 3,000 exactly!!

We welcomed tourists from across the UK, including the parkrun poet (real name Tim Gardiner, @parkrunpoetry ) who wrote this short verse as a tribute to Keith Flint (in 3 line haiku form) …
