Looking at the event history page on our website the last time we had 135 finishers was on 9th February 2013. Anyone would think that something else was going on!
Anyway... we were delighted to see a select bunch gathering at the start line just before nine... which including tourists from Grantham and Lincoln, and three genuine first timers. Welcome to our parkrun world - Lisa, Joanne and Caroline.
Sandy informed us that another one of our 'first timers' at event 432 was "just getting back into running..." and less than 19 minutes later Ed was our first finisher! Martha was our first female today and once over the line she slipped straight into a hi-vis jacket to assist Lydia, Justin and John on clipboard duties.
Despite the awful conditions 19 people recorded new Personal Bests and two of our genuine first timers gave the bell a ring too to announce their arrival!
Congratulations to Fife who joined the 10 Club, Michelle who joined the 50 Club and Steph, Zac and Ben who all joined the 100 Club today.

The volunteer roster is looking great as we jog towards the end of the year but the fuller it is the more relaxed we can be. Please check out the current state of things here and get in touch if you'd like to be magnificent in hi-vis any time soon.
Don't forget that you are always welcome to join us at the Daleside Cafe after parkrun. This week we even watched the rugby!
