Run report June 1st – GPs, a birthday and a giant rabbit

Bright sunshine welcomed 115 participants to Crathes Castle this week for the 16th event. There were 45 first timers, with 25 participants celebrating new PBs. The first finishers this week were Alison Matthews, Jamie Ross and junior Alice Steven.

Core committee member Laura celebrated her birthday and was joined on her run by family and a birthday balloon!

It was a special parkrun day countrywide - GP pledge day. To celebrate the first anniversary of the Royal College of General Practitioners collaboration with parkrun, GPs and practice staff were invited to come and take part. At Crathes today some volunteered while others completed the course or cheered on their colleagues. It was great to have them all join us with such enthusiasm.

We were also joined today by representatives from local cancer support charity CLAN, with Clancy the mascot a big hit with all the children. Clancy and his guide braved the heat to complete part of the course and advertise CLAN's fundraising walk to be staged at Crathes in September.

So another great parkrun day, can't wait for next week!
