Run Report by: Joy Elsmore
This week's event saw slightly less puddles to avoid but still lots of lovely mud as parkrunners tackled the alternative-alternative course once again. A spot or two of rain threatened to dampen spirits, but by the end of the event the sun was shining and bright- a lovely start to the weekend.
233 people ran, jogged and walked the course, of whom 29 were first timers and 36 recorded new Personal Bests. Representatives of 25 different clubs took part.
On Saturday, we also had *two* people celebrating their 250th parkrun at our event! An amazing achievement- congratulations again to you both, and thank you also for the cookies!
Event #90 was my first week as Run Director, having trained and done lots of volunteering over the past few months. Dinton Pastures parkrunners are always friendly and our volunteers so willing to help, it's a delight to be able to give something back to the parkrun community. I'd also just like to thank the rest of the Run Directors for being so welcoming and willing in helping me to learn the role!
