I believe there is distinctive trend now, with an ongoing increase in weekly members. It looks like the secret of fabulousness is finally out.
We are 4 and a half neat laps of challenging climbs and downward sprints. There is no other parkrun quite like ours.
So the feeling this week was one that summer has arrived. We can now enjoy the tree canopy of shade rather than the drip of rain drops.
With such lovely weather it was no wonder that our 171 runners plus hi-vised volunteers stepped out for another weekly run.
Being a slow/moderate runner myself, my general position is that most people look pretty fast compared to me. But when my fellow time keepers and marshals watched James Skinner skip past in a fuzzy blur eye brows were raised. “This is going to be a good time” were the words uttered. And indeed it was. James time started with the number 16!! That was 16.53 for 5k. He really did keep us on our toes and working fast on the finish funnel. So well done James on such an impressive time week. PB next week?
Our first lady who crossed the line like a Gazelle was Isabel Russell with an equally admirable time of 22.50
As always thank you to the ever faithful bunch of volunteers. Do sign up and join in to volunteer, is really does add another amazing dimension to parkrun when you give back.
As this is my run report I would like to say ‘well done’ to my youngest who got her best Clair parkrun time of this year and to my other daughter who volunteered to help without quibble.
Anyone fancy another run this Saturday? Meet again around 9 at Clair Park??
