February 29.2.2020 – Event 249

For the first time in three weeks we weren't running through a named storm! There was a bit of wind and rain, but it didn't stop 199 people hitting the hills, with visitors from Sheffield and Surrey. We also welcomed friends from Colwick and other somewhat soggy local parkruns.

We had 23 first timers, and a brilliant 31 PB's (guys don't forget to ring the bell!), with representatives from 24 different clubs.

We celebrated Sharon Messam's 25th volunteering event and George Miller's 100th parkrun!

First over the line was Matthew Nutt in 18.50, followed by Mark Hornsey at 19.04. First lady was Amy Casson in 21.57, followed by Katherine Malone in 23.13.

A couple of reminders to help our parkruns run smoothly. After finishing please don't walk back through the funnel as it causes problems for the finishers. Also when walking back to the car park, please be aware of those still running and keep to one side to let them through.

The IT won't talk to my phone, so photos will be on our FB page....

Next week is our 250th parkrun and International Women's day. To mark this try to wear purple or green!

We're all in Kelly's safe hands next week!
