Event 394 – 19th January 2019

Event 394 got off to a rather chilly start with the Deane Duo’s first ever go at Run Directing! We really enjoyed it and encourage anyone to have a go in the coveted Blue and White.  Being on the megaphone was a little nerve racking, but I was told I was definitely enough of a loud mouth for everyone to hear – phew!

A special thanks to superstar Stephen Dickens for his mentoring throughout the week and on the day!

Out of 258 walkers, joggers and runners we had 32 first-timers, and 34 of you recording new personal bests. We had tourists from as far and wide as Mansfield… oh, and Norfolk!

We congratulated James BURROWS for his 50th run, Toby STEWART for his 100th and Sandra GELL for her 100th parkrun

Thanks to our super team of volunteers Event 394 went off without a hitch, so special thanks to…

Our Brilliant Barcode scanners: Craig, Helen and Jacques!

Our Fabulous Funnel Managers: Grace and Emily!

Our Tremendous Timekeepers: Claire and Tracey!

Our Marvellous Marshals: Angie and Jon, with a special thanks to Maureen and Arry for stepping into the Hi-Viz at the last minute to cheer you along!

Our two Terrific Tail Walkers: Karen and Julie, making sure you all got home safely.  Let’s not forget our Fantastic Photographer, Andrew, who takes all of our wonderful pictures – like this one!

When all of the kit was packed up and taken back to the lockup, our hands had defrosted and the defib was delivered back to the hut it was, of course, time for an Omelette and a brew at Daleside café.  All the results were processed, and we had extra help from our Super Sorters: Niki, Zach and Roo!

A huge thank you to everybody who came along to Event 394 at Colwick this weekend – my Dad and I had an absolute blast in the RD blue and white! I’m sure the Deane Duo will be back again soon!
