Fleetwood Promenade parkrun #69 23rd November 2019

Fleetwood Promenade parkrun # 69– 23/11/2019

Luckily, the rain held off for the volunteers and 67 parkrunners who turned up on a cold, dull and breezy morning until after the finish. The cold wind picked up considerably and made things tough and unpleasant for those out on the course (and finish funnel), the times reflecting it.
We had a first timer from Manchester, runners from Southport, regulars from Darwen (the Taylors) and Blackpool Freedom Runners, Red Rose Runners and also from Glossopdale and Redway. Great to see visitors at this time of year! We nearly had a parkrunner from Australia who unfortunately got the start time wrong (7am in Oz) thinking we started at 8am - hopefully we will see him next week!
First runner across the line was James Greenaway from TCRC in a time of 19:33, second being Steve Waterhouse from Wesham in a time of 19:47.
Garrick Coventry was our first J15-17 across the line in 6th place with a time of 20:45
First lady in 17th place was Andrea Smith from BW&FAC in 24:34

Unfortunately, the Fleetwood YMCA cafe has decided to close until March 2020. At the moment we do not have a regular designated cafe for post run drinks/coffee etc. Please let us know if you would like to have a chat afterwards for a brew - we could be able to find somewhere. Due to our location though, a lot of places are closed now for the winter. Please watch this space....

A big thank you to all our volunteers without whom the event would not go ahead, Catherine ANDERTON, ,Susan ASHTON, Karen BOYLAN, Paul BURROWS, Ian CAMERON, Susan CARTMELL, Steve CARTMELL, , Susan CARTMELL, Natalie COVENTRY, Helen MEEHAN, Michael VARLEY, Mike WARRINER and Wendy WOOD
