Congratulations to the 185 runners who completed today's Druridge Bay parkrun.
The results have been uploaded and cheers to Geoff who has put the photo's on our facebook page.
Thankfully today was rain free but there was still some interesting puddles to negotiate!.
As, always many thanks to today's fantastic team of volunteers.
You're Simply the best.
Please give your consideration to being a volunteer we couldn't function without you.
I know we had one tourist from Bristol,among our 19 runners completing our two laps of the lake for the first time.
Well done to our first male and female runners who are both regulars, Ian Armstrong and Carole Page.
Finally, someone today has unfortunately left with the wrong size Black Karrimor gloves, we have your gloves, please could you return the large ones next week, to enable them to be returned to their owners, thank you.
Thanks for choosing Druridge Bay parkrun, have a great week we'll all be there again next saturday
Northumberland County Council are set to reintroduce parking charges at various sites around the county, including at Druridge Bay Country Park. The first event to be effected will be Saturday 21st July, with ticket machines and signage being erected in the next couple of weeks. However your superb Run Directors have negotiated a fantastic deal for all our parkrunners……….
As long as you place a parkrun barcode clearly in your cars windscreen you can park for free at the park until 10.30am! If you are staying after this time, you will need to purchase a parking ticket. Enforcement chaps will be making periodic checks of the sites carparks so please make sure you are covered. Our advice is to leave a spare barcode in your cars, thus you always have one to hand!
Any questions just email our event inbox...…..
Alas due to parts of the course resembling a skating rink we've had to take the rare step of cancelling the event on Saturday 20th January. One of our Run Directors ran the course as part of a long run today and deemed it unsafe. With no real prospect of temperatures rising we decided at just after lunchtime on Friday to cancel. Fingers crossed we'll be ok for next Saturday. Up to the minute updates will be on our Twitter feed and Facebook wall.
So tomorrow will be a good opportunity to head down the coast to take part in the fabulous Newbiggin By The Sea parkrun!!
