#309 Great day for PBs

Tinsel Run ad for 18-Dec-21

It was perfect running conditions on the Leas light winds and not too hot or cold for November!

It was great to welcome our tourists today from Ally Pally and Bromley and also to all the first timers.

It was my first go at being run director today and I wanted to give a big shout out to the lovely Blister Sisters and my neighbours Sarah & Chris who came to support me as volunteers and run the event today.

Parkrun is a volunteer run event, so if you can spare a Saturday morning please volunteer by emailing in via parkrun webpage or when you are next at parkrun why not jot your name down on the future rosters sheet.

Christmas Day and New Year’s Day

Parkrun Christmas 1

Subject to having sufficient volunteers to ensure everyone is safe, we are planning for Folkestone parkrun as usual at 09:00 on Saturday 25th December 2021 and 1st January 2022.

Friends and families welcome

If you have family or friends staying with you, please bring them along to join in, volunteer or just watch. Everyone is welcome. Santa hats and elf costumes are optional.

Visiting friends or family elsewhere?

Many parkruns will be putting on events over the festive period. If you are planning to be away, check https://www.parkrun.org.uk/special-events to see if there is a parkrun local to you that will be operating; or perhaps offer to volunteer with them. Your barcode records your attendance at any parkrun in the world.

Also a big hello to our friends from Florida who ran with us today.

Well done to Andy Ingleston and Craig Hoveman on their 100th events.
