Gloucester North parkrun #157, 17/11/2018
Report by Mark Perkins

Welcome to this week’s run report for Gloucester North. This week’s run conditions were dry with a little bit of wind and only 38 sleeps till Christmas Day. Well done all 107 runners.

Firstly, I would like to thank all the volunteers, helpers and supporters for giving up your time to come out on a Saturday morning, it's much appreciated and without you parkrun just wouldn’t happen. Please get in touch if you can help in any way, details are on the website or just ask the race 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 put you in the right direction.

Parkrun volunteers this week were as follows-

Alice COMPTON, Annalee TIDMARSH, Christopher BOYLE, Denise POWELL, Ella GREEN, Emily WINSKILL, Georgina EMILE, Helen JONES, Karen BENNETT, Kerri GREEN, Lara TIDMARSH, Louis GREEN, Mark PERKINS, Mary BRUTON, Megan THORESSON, Rachael HEYWOOD, Rachel PEARCE, Sarah DHILLON, Stephen BRADSHAW, Vinay KARADIA and William TIDMARSH.

This week’s speediest runner was Toby Scott with a time of 17.49 in his 50th parkrun plus a cheeky pb. The first female runner was Kiya Dee with a time of 20.00, thank you for visiting Kiya. First under 15 was Jacob Berry with 19.41, again another pb.

For the statos amongst you, there were 24 first timers, 18 people with personal bests, and runners from Leeds, Heathrow and Leamington Spa.

Just a couple of items to mention before I go, firstly please could you check you have not left with one of our precious finish tokens and secondly, next week we will be having a collection for the local foodbank.

Thanks to all, both runners, helpers and spectators and we hope to see you at Gloucester North or just parkrun in general very soon.
