Event number 108
22nd February 2020
This week 383 people ran, jogged and walked the course, of whom 39 were first timers and 57 recorded new Personal Bests. Representatives of 19 different clubs took part.
Well done to everyone who took part this week, both runners and volunteers. It was a blustery day - we just hope the wind was blowing in the right direction (especially up those hills!!). Huge kudos to our first timers and to anyone reaching milestones this week - you're all awesome!
One of the things I personally love so much is the kindness and positivity that exudes from Crewe Parkrun each week. Everyone is friendly, kind, supportive,helpful and upbeat. There really is no place I'd rather be at 9am on a Saturday morning!! In light of recent events in the press this week, it really has made me reflect on the importance of being kind to one another and I think Crewe Parkrun is a perfect example of exactly that. Let's be proud of what we all bring to one another and our community as we come together each Saturday morning and let us always continue to be kind xxx
This week, we asked one of our regular volunteers, Joe Scott if he'd be willing to write a few words about his feelings on Parkrun and how he got involved. So in Joe's words, not ours.... thank you Joe, you're awsome xx
I have been asked to give my feelings on the Crewe Parkrun.
I'm Joe, one of a team of volunteers who marshal. I'm the one at the end of the lake in the valley just before the hill.
I was somehow coerced into it by my Son, Greg, who runs every week, but I have to say, I'm completely hooked on it now. I get so much pleasure out of seeing you all and having lots of banter with you, not to mention the high-fives I get!! I hope my encouragement to you helps a little - and some of you now recognise me in town, which is great!
I'm so glad my son got me involved, as I feel I've made quite a few more friends and to be involved with something this good, I have to say, I think you are all brill for taking part and it must be a wonderful feeling when you get to the finishing line.
I would like to thank everyone for making me feel so welcome, it makes an old man very happy and long may it continue. Thanks again to all, see you soon.
PS - I would recommend anyone to come and join us, you won't find a more friendly group of people anywhere'
It's wonderful to see the impact Parkrun has on not just the runners who take part but also on those who volunteer. So next time you pass Joe down in the valley, be sure to give him a high-five!
See you all same time next week?
Have a great week and stay safe.
Crewe Parkrun Team xx
