Run report 25th August 2018

Gloucester North park run # 145 25/08/2018

Welcome to this week’s run report for Gloucester North. This week’s run conditions were sunny and fresh and a total of 99 runners took part and 25 volunteers
Firstly, I would like to thank all the volunteers, helpers and supporters for giving up your time to come out on a Saturday morning, its much appreciated and without you parkrun just wouldn’t happen. Please get in touch if you can help in anyway, details are on the website or just ask the run director at the next parkrun. Details of roles and dates can also be found here too, if you’re considering a role but unsure what it involves then just ask any of the volunteers as they will be happy to help you or point you in the right direction.

Parkrun volunteers this week were as follows- Caroline MARSHALL • David HOWELLS • Eden HOWELLS • Emily HUMPHRIS • Graeme BRAND • Jane WOOD • John O’LEARY • Katie HAYES • Kerri GREEN • Louise ANNIS • Lucinda ARNOLD • Lucy BEEVERS • Mark PERKINS • Mary BRUTON • Matt LONG • Michelle JONES • Michelle STARK • Neil TAYLOR • Nick BEEVERS • Noel O’DONNELL • Paula CUMMING • Rachel PEARCE • Sarah DHILLON • Stephen BRADSHAW • Tom PAYNE

This week’s speediest runner was Peter Stevens with a time of 18.00, the first female runner was Sophie O'DONOGHUE with a time of 25.15 and first junior was Isaac MIDDUP in 21.04. Well done as Gloucester north parkrun is testing on a good day with pot holes, grass and tight turns to contend with.

For the stats amongst you, there were 7 first timers, 13 people with personal bests, and runners from Selby Striders and Eastleigh RC took part.

Two milestone runs from this week were Paul Edgeworth in his 100TH run, thanks to Paul’s family for cheering too and Jane Wood on her 50th run (good to see you back Jane)
So, before I go I would just like to say sorry if I have missed anyone, spelt you name incorrectly or not mentioned you but I look forward to running with you all soon. I’ve got to go as I’m writing this report from my sunbed in Egypt and I need to tun onto my back.

Just remember its only 17 park runs until Christmas.


Thanks Mark
