A dry morning with only light winds greeted our runners for the first parkrun of 2020 and a good turnout of 191 which made for a busy course.
Well done to first finishers Richard Moore (SM30-34; 21:08) who was running with us for the first time, and to Lottie Smith (JW15-17; 22:51) In fact we had 21 first timers as well as 9 of you who managed to record a new PB, congratulations.
No running milestones to celebrate this week, but we do give our congratulations to Caroline Mauger who has clocked up 25 volunteering stints with us and earns the purple milestone shirt. If I’d known that earlier Caroline, I would have had you in the purple cape!
Maybe I’m easily pleased but there’s nothing like sorting all the finish tokens and finding them all there! We are now on Event #190 and since we started we have lost 48 tokens, making up replacements when needed from our back up supply. Once those have gone we will need to use some of our donated funds to buy a new set of tokens, but we can delay that for a bit longer as our loss rate seems to have gone right down! Thankfully our “please do not take your finish token home” messages are getting through!
The volunteer roster is looking pretty healthy for next week, with room for just two more marshals, however there’s plenty of space for 18 January and thereafter all weeks going forward, so if you would like to try volunteering please get in touch.
The Beach House Cafe remains closed until 23 January so another two weeks to go until we can enjoy a warming drink post parkrun!
Kirsten is in charge next week and we have our fingers crossed for decent weather once again.
