So yet again the wind did blow. But all the volunteers, wrapped up warm and became hero's. the parkrunners happily went off, and arrived back happy to see the finish. 24 volunteers and 236 parkrunners made a happy but breezy morning. It was a tough morning to be volunteering and just to acknowledge the Hi Vis Hero' here is a e-mail that came in:
Hello Hastings Parkrun,
There were two milestones Neil Jeffries wearing his 250 t-shirt and Phoebe Cote who ran her 50th parkrun.
INTERNATIONAL WOMAN'S DAY 7th MARCH
Hastings parkrun will be celebrating IWD on the 7th of March and we would like to celebrate by asking you all to try and bring an extra female friend or relative down to run, walk or volunteer at parkrun on this day. Please wear purple if you can. You will be amazed at what parkrun can do!!
Parkrun is for everyone, what people don’t know is that the figures for participation are a little unbalanced. Research shows that across the world women are less likely than men to take part in parkrun – and that’s despite females making up 54% of registrations! 11-17 age group is very under represented.!!!!! So please encourage any youngsters to come and participate.We actively encourage walking - don't be put off by thinking it's a run. You can bring the kids, the dog, a buggy...everyone is welcome.
!8th April Date for you diaries.
Hasting parkrun will be celebrating our 5th Birthday on THE PIER. Please start spreading the news. Jane and Ken will be your Run Directors that day, and will lots and lots of volunteers!!!!!!!!! It will be fun.
See you all Leap Year Saturday
