This week there was more mud, reaching the parts that other parkruns can't as 104 people ran, jogged and walked the course, of whom 19 were first timers and 5 recorded new Personal Bests. Representatives of 17 different clubs took part including Windle Valley Runners and Grange Farm and Dunmow Runners.
Welcome to Simon MILLHOUSE on parkrun #1 and congratulation to Dave FITTON on reaching the big 50 today.
The event was made possible by 20 super volunteers led by this weeks first time Run Director Ellen PARRY who did a great job and got to say hello to Darren WOOD, who, at 763 runs has completed the most parkrun events of anyone, anywhere, who was paying us a first visit:
Duncan HAUGHEY • Paul KILLICK • Sarah ABBOTT • Dave PEARCE • Alastair BENBOW • Vicky BURR • Robert SOCHON • Max NICKLESS • Jason TUTTY • Steve DYE • Jo GRAHAM • Dee HARPER • Sam WANG • Lisa MCLAREN • Ian HARPER • Kathy MILLER • Stephen WHITE • Ellen PARRY • Cynthia BOARDMAN • Lottie HARVEY
Thanks also to Chung SHUNE for stepping in at the last minute to help as a marshal. If you would like to join the volunteer team, just let us know, speak to anyone in HV, there are lots of roles, we can't put on the event without you!
First male across the line this week was Chris DYSON of Woking AC on 17:56 and first female Clare FOWLER of Ranelagh Harriers on 23:20. Well done to everyone who made it around today, especially with the swamp down by the road, certainly was a squelchy one.
Today's full results and a complete event history can be found on the Homewood parkrun Results Page.
Probably going to be slippery again next week, so please wear trail shoes to reduce risk of injury.
Please also remember that we're going to have a load of wood chip delivered this week and are holding a working party after next weeks run to spread it on the damper parts of the course. If you can, please bring wheelbarrows, trugs, shovels etc nad stay behind to help out as much as you can. Many thanks.
