279 runners and walkers joined us for our Christmas jumpers & satsuma parkrunday, suitably dressed for the occasion.
The day was made even more special with Roy returning to marshal the famous “Roy's Split”.
Jim and Patrick completed their 100th parkrun, Katy and Paul their 50th and Alistair his 10th “grown up parkrun” as a junior.
For once, the volunteers looked less flashy than the participants:
But they all knew what they were doing and enjoyed working together. What a team!
Special mention to Steve who lead a team of tail walkers comprising of four under 10s.
Katy spiced up her 50th parkrun by doing “burpees” every time she passed a marshal.
It does take something truly special to be noticed among the two legged reindeers
and the running trees:
The atmosphere was so great, lots of people staying at the finish line, talking to friends, and enjoying the occasion.
33 parkrunners scored a pb:
The Daleside Cafe looked very seasonal afterwards:
Thank you all for the costumes and the great atmosphere. Have a fantastic Christmas!
