Event 15

A very cold and icy morning, bitterly cold but beautifully scenic conditions for Drumpellier’s 15th event. The cold air wasn’t a problem for the 176 hardy runners that joined us this morning, crisp conditions underfoot made for a perfect track.

A magnificent amount of first timers this morning, 59 in total including our first finisher this morning Robbie Kennedy. There were also several first timers within the Couch to 5K team that joined us today from the Airdrie branch of Jog Scotland, well done to Kenny Dickson, Ali Leith, Fiona Elliot and all the others, that’s you part of the parkrun family.

The conditions today definitely made a difference for a whopping 32 runners who recorded a PB, well done Martyn Glancy, John Friel, Megan Stewart, Gail Tennant and all the others. The atmosphere was fantastic this morning, as it always is, there was plenty of chatting and laughing around the course, so well done to everyone.


A special shout out to the Bark Runners today, woof, especially Dan the border collie that dragged Ann Dickson to the finish line.

There were a few who reached parkrun milestones today, they included Arthur Duggen who chalked of his 150th in the company of his son Luke on his 9th birthday who was a first timer at Drumpellier, well done team Duggan.

Another fantastic event, well done Dougie Holmes our run director and all the Hi-Viz heroes you were all amazing.

A cold start ended with a very warm feeling as we all crossed the 5K finish line, you are all amazing , thank you for coming along to Drumpellier parkrun.

parkrun really wouldn't happen without volunteers so please consider it for future weeks. Full training is given and nothing is too difficult so come on and give it a try!
