So not one of the nicest mornings in respect of the weather on Saturday and at one point I did wonder just how many runners we would get? After a late cry for help, you came good and we had a flurry of volunteers; thank you. It really was a late call this week and I cannot stress enough that without the help of our volunteers we simply cannot put on the event.
So for those of you who did volunteer, you are wonderful. We did have some newcomers to volunteering too so well done, thank you and hopefully others will follow and realise what fun it is.
A very warm welcome also to our newcomers to parkrun. I hope you enjoyed it, apart from the mud, and you will be back for more. Welcome also to our Tourists who visited us this week from Steyning in Sussex and Great Cornard.
So it was a bit of a muddy one. With the relentless rain we have had recently there are now parts of the course that are getting muddy. The core team will keep an eye on this and advise if we need to make any changes to the course through the week on the facebook page.
Chris & Mandy Lines celebrated their 50th parkrun on Saturday, well done to both of you and thank you for the cakes enjoyed by the muddy runners at the finish. Chris and Mandy have done 47 of their 50 parkrun's at Great Dunmow and in addition to their magic 50. both have volunteered 12 times each.
Szabina Nemeth also celebrated her 50th parkun. Szabina has run all 50 at Great Dunmow and again in doing so has volunteered 20 times also.
This week 52 people ran, jogged and walked the course, of whom 10 were first timers and 1 recorded new Personal Bests. Representatives of 9 different clubs took part.
