This morning, like many other parkruns, Hillsborough parkrun celebrated International Women's Day. The vast majority of our hi-vis heroes were women, made up of members of the Seven Hills Harriers Running Club resplendent in their fantastic bobble hats and club hoodies, alongside regular volunteers from Hillsborough.
We had a bumper turnout of 543, partly due to another local running club, the Steel City Striders, holding the final of their parkrun cup. Well done to Izzy Carter who took the 2020 trophy. There were 19 first timers and 29 tourists, including some from as far afield as South Wales (Hillsborough is going international !) The lovely running conditions meant 107 people achieved a PB.
We had a number of people earn their milestone t-shirts:
Junior 10 - M Smith
50 - Judith Havenhand, Alex Beagley (aged 12), Lynn Oxlade
100 - Mark Carrigan
250 - Richard Chisem
Also worthy of note, despite not being an "official" milestone, Richard Pegg reached his 300th parkrun event.
