Event 448 – 7th March 2020


After two weeks of cancellation due to flooding and a fallen tree, it was great to be back at Colwick! The day was made extra special with us celebrating International Women's Day with a special #ThisGirlCan frame. It was wonderful to see so many women walking, jogging, running and volunteering amongst the 211 parkrunners and 23 hi-viz heroes!





Abi welcomed 23 first timers and tourists from Tring. Amongst them was Jean who registered 6 years ago and chose today to take part! Well done Jean and all our first timers!



We celebrated the 50th milestone of Katherine and Will and 100th of Daphne, Mary and Tam. Many congrats all of you- we look forward to seeing you in your milestone t-shirts soon!

A big thank you to our 23 hi-viz heroes who made today special:
Abigail CAST • Andrew PHILLIPS • Andy PARSONS • Arry NATHAN • Ben SHIRT • Callie-May DICKENS • Claire DUNKLEY • Claire O NEILL • Evie DICKENS • Gemma SYMIS • Helen HOOD • Howard WATKINSON • Ian BEASLEY • Jillian BOURGEOIS • Joanna WARD • John MITCHELL • Kathryn MELLOR • Kevin BOWEN • Megan MELLOR • Nick CRIPPS • Samuel TENNANT • Stephen DICKENS • Tina HOLLAND


SuperKev, our Event Course Checker was spot on when he reported PB conditions- 20 of you recorded a PB! Congrats- I manged to catch a few of you but you were too quick for me!


The morning was completed with a visit to Daleside where parkrunners had a lovely chat over cobs and omelettes.

Same again next week?
