Run Report for Dulwich parkrun event #369 on 16th March 2019 (with thanks to Steve Waters)

Well, that was a windy one. With the gusts from the last week not letting up, it was great to see so many happy parkrunners out to battle the elements today. Well done to all 407 runners today and a huge thank you to the volunteers who braved the wind to ensure we could all enjoy our parkrun fix for the week. The event at Dulwich runs like clockwork, important due to the fast course.

This week we thank all the volunteers who made event 369 happen: Joni ARTHUR, Gillian CAVELL, Adam LANGSTON, Olivia LARLHAM, Philip LAWRENCE, Chris LAWRENCE, Julia MCDOUGALL, Andrew MCDOUGALL, Rob MURPHY, Andrew O'CONNELL, Lucy O'CONNELL, Lola PETHYBRIDGE, Anthony PRANGLEY, Errol ROBATHAN, Louise ROBATHAN, Alice SHERIDAN, Ian SIPPITT, Steven WATERS and Soo YAU.

Now to our finishers this week…

We fielded a heathy number of runners, joggers and walkers this morning, with 407 taking on the course. What is great to see, is that, despite the wind, 60 Dulwich personal bests were set today – champion efforts there.

There were 63 finishers joining us in Dulwich for the first time today, we hope you enjoyed your visit including 14 who completed their first ever parkrun. Keep going, see you next week! And we had some ‘milestone’ runs with one Junior finisher earning his ‘10’ shirt with a new PB on our course (Evan COWELL-NEW), three of our parkrunners joining the ‘50 club’ today (Conan D’ARCY, Peter GREANEY and Joseph WINLAW, also a Junior runner who hit a new PB) and another of our regular juniors, William GARDINER, joining the ‘100 club’. Congratulations to all of you. Far beyond most of our imaginations, we also saw Gary SLATER clock in another park run… up to 436 runs now with over 100 at Dulwich.
