In these unprecedented times it was wonderful to have a little bit of normality in the shape of the 449th edition of Colwick parkrun.
We welcomed 196 people; 174 of which walked and jogged the course (including 4 genuine first timers) and 22 volunteers who helped to make the magic happen.
We waved to tourists from Southampton parkrun and Heaton Park parkrun at the pre-run brief, and were pleased to be able to congratulate Hilary on joining the 50 Club and Thomas on joining the 100 Club at event 449.
Huge thanks to all of our wonderful volunteers (which included six under 18s): Amy ABETHELL • Benjamin EDWARDS • Bernard JARVIS • Callie-May DICKENS • Eileen O'REILLY • Erica ILIFFE • Eve RANDALL • Evie DICKENS • Frazer HOOD • Helen HOOD • Helen WHITEHAND • Iris PEEL • Jane RYCROFT • Joseph EDWARDS • Kathryn MELLOR • Kevin BOWEN • Lydia Rose DEANE • Nick CRIPPS • Samuel TENNANT • Stephen DICKENS • Victoria RANDALL
Thank you for jogging along. The atmosphere was incredibly buoyant throughout the morning, no-one rushed off, the cafe was packed, and there was a real sense of people soaking up the 'parkrun love' just in case... #loveparkrun
