That was certainly a chilly one served up by storm Arwen this morning, though to be fair it wasn't raining and no sleet or snow! There's always a positive.
The usual pre-run keeping it brief 'briefings' from Tim, your RD today, and they were off into the wind for a short distance to The Octogon (past that bloke taking video, all giving a smile or gritted teeth chattering!) before a sharp right and heading out to Orcombe Point turn, out of sight for 15 minutes while the volunteers set up the rest of the finish zone to welcome the runners back across the finish line. Before we know it the first runners are making their way back up past the Start/Finish zone heading out towards the final turn point at the Cavendish with a short 0.4 mile stretch back into the finish zone. Well done to you all today. It was a bracing morning for all participants. We hope you enjoyed your free, weekly, timed run with us today.
This week 186 people ran, jogged and walked the course, of whom 20 were first timer visitors (surprisingly not one single first timer to parkrun today - too chilly maybe!) and 11 recorded new Personal Bests. Representatives of 22 different clubs took part.
A few stats and milestone today, First Finisher was Ryan Stocks of Kimberley and District Striders in a time of 20:12, First Lady and 2nd Finisher overall was Louise Mills of Woking AC in a time of 20:54, First Junior 10 Lady was Lily Hewart in a time of 23:55 and First Junior 10 Male was Blaze Bastyan-Knight in a new PB time of 25:43. There was one special milestone achieved today, Quinn Chappell Junior Male 10 who achieved his 10th parkrun. That's impressive running in those conditions today. Very well done and congratulations to you all.
This event was all made possible by our amazing 28 hi-vis heroes and we are very grateful to them for their help. It just couldn't happen without them: Chris BATEMAN, Lisa BERRIDGE, Darren BRADLEY, Julia BROOK, Craig BUTLER, Mike BYRNE, Louise COATES, Richard COATES, Phil DAVEY, Sue DAVEY, Nigel DUPAIN, Evie EDWARDS, Hayley EDWARDS, Linda HOE, Sarah JENNINGS, Karen JONES, Joan MASON, Stan MASON, Amanda MCCANN, Nick MILLINGTON, Terry MINTING, Donna PIERCE, Timothy PRATT, Nick RICHART, Nathan SHEEHY, Karen STEWART, Rosemary TATE, Lisa WHITE.
Why not get involved and volunteer for a future event? It's all great fun and you don't need previous experience. What's not to like!
