Guernsey parkrun Event #157 – 4 May 2019

What a shame that after a glorious day on Friday we were met with very chilly windy conditions on Saturday but this didn't deter our 166 participants or our wonderful team of volunteers, many of whom were back from recent challenges and ready to step up to do their bit for parkrun again.

This week we had many visitors including Gail Jazmik who also doubled up to volunteer and sort our tokens and Geoff and Kathy Brown from Glossop. They all thought our course was in a stunning location but didn't want to mention the wind, ha ha no surprise there! They also had nice comments to make about our volunteer team so you obviously all did a great job, thanks team!

Well done to first finishers James de Garis and Lottie Smith and a special mention to Nicola Smith's hen party who all completed the course on her hen weekend, well done ladies.

Lastly thank you to all our 166 participants and in particular to all 30 people who ran/walked our course for the first time.

See you all again next time.
