It was a fairly bright morning with a bit of a chilly breeze and we were delighted to welcome 212 runners and walkers to this weeks Hereford parkrun. Following the heavy rain in the week there were a few water obstacles to tackle on the course.
Despite the head wind 19 of you still managed a PB, with Gill Rivers, Marc Kendrick and Leo Cui making it into the Hereford Hall of Fame (a PB with 10 or more runs completed). Well done to all of you - hope you had a little post run treat to celebrate.
We had 21 first timers today which included visitors from Bristol, Leeds and Swindon to name a few. 10 of you were having your first experience of parkrun and we hope it was a good one. We look forward to hopefully seeing you all again soon.
A mention must go to Neil Tiley whose home parkrun is Swindon. Neil completed his 391st parkrun this week in Hereford. It was his first visit to our course and we were the 86th venue that he's run at. He's also has numerous volunteer credits to his name. He mentioned after the run how much he'd enjoyed our course and we very much hope he chooses to visit us again at some point so we can hear on his progress as he edges closer to the '500' milestone t-shirt.
Finally, the biggest shout out goes to our volunteers this week who experienced some chilly fingers and feet whilst doing the various roles. Each week we need a dozen or so volunteers to safely hold the event, so please do get in contact if you can help out. Future rosters can be found on the website and you can put your name down by either e-mailing, commenting on the facebook page or speaking to one of our volunteers on Saturday morning.
Enjoy your week and we look forward to seeing you again soon.
