parkrun 112 September 26th


BBC test card 'F', featuring Carole Hersee and Bubbles the clown.

Another beautiful Saturday morning awarded Team Pines the opportunity to grab some training before we activate.


A huge thanks to all at Clumber for having us - our test run was invaluable: we learnt absolutely loads and took home lots of tips.

"When does it start?" was the question of the day. The answer... "SOON". You'll be able to find us when we're ready...


We had so much fun I'd encourage anyone to give volunteering a go. In fact it's so much fun Mikey (one of our fab juniors) got up at the crack of dawn to celebrate his 12th birthday with banners, sweets and cake in tow. Thanks Mikey!


Speaking of juniors: it's such a pleasure to see so many of them galloping round but please remember Under 11's must be accompanied (within an arms length) round the course at all times.


Quite a few tourists this week: West End Runners were out in force with Mark Lambell storming in first in a time of 17.54. Regular junior Amber Scott once again was the first female.



But's a run, not a race Tribe!

See you next Saturday...
