Ellon parkrun
Event number 220
18th September 2021

No rain... as promised (!) and a really enjoyable morning. Both the volunteers and runners all made it so easy for me as run director today so a big thank you to everyone.

Lovely to see some faces from Hazlehead too where one of the runners also managed a detour to have a go on Gordon Park slide! It was still a very good time as it probably added distance and effort to the whole run.

We do remain very short of volunteers for all events in the future so please have a look at the future volunteer roster and send us an email (ellon@parkrun.com) if you would like to give volunteering a go.
