This week 142 people ran, jogged and walked the course. We welcomed Ackworth Road Runners (ARR) to Frickley, with over 70 members running today as part of their Grand Prix (GP) events. (The GP is an internal year-long competition, where various races/runs are identified and form part of the GP. Members attend and get points for participating). Hope you enjoyed yourselves (at least afterwards) and thank you for choosing us.
Furthest distance for a tourist has to go to Larry Webb, who joined us from Toronto, Canada, for his first ever parkrun. Welcome to parkrun Larry, here’s hoping you are able to do a few more local ones (and looking at parkrun Canada, you seem to have a reasonable choice of parkruns within the Greater Toronto Area if you fancy it J )
We had lots of personal bests (45 in all) – Simon Newton our first finisher achieving a Frickley course PB. We also had an unofficial milestone of 300 parkruns achieved by Georgie Newton – very well done to all of you!
I do have a couple of unknowns; one at finish position 27 with a time of 23:53, and a second one at position 129 with a time of 39:25. If you haven’t received a results email or text, or recognise yourself as either of these, please let me know and I can update the results! I will need your name and barcode number so feel free to send via messenger if you prefer.
The event was made possible by 25 fantastic volunteers and I could not have been a happier Run Director today. Thank you everyone for joining us! J
