Event #138 Saturday 25th May 2019


It was the Spring bank holiday weekend and the sun managed to peek out right at the end as 130 people ran, jogged, pushed buggies, walked their pooch and walked the course, of whom 34 were first timers and 24 recorded new Personal Bests. Representatives of 18 different clubs took part including St Albans Striders and Bristol and West AC.


We welcomed tourists from Guildford and Upton Park whose own runs were cancelled, Bristol, Burgess Hill, Market Harborough and also a group from St Albans, nice to see visitors here, hope you enjoyed your run through the woods!


New to parkrun this week were Grace HARTLEY and Lizzy MILLS, run #1 is the most important, so super well done!


Reaching the 50 milestone this week and earning their red shirts was regular volunteer Marie BUYS, and Tim CANE, 30 of Tim's runs here at Homewood. Stepping up to 100 runs, all the way from St Albans was visitor to Homewood Sue EDWARDS, well done to everyone and thanks for the cakes!


The event was made possible by 20 amazing volunteers led by this weeks Run Director Steve DYE:

Duncan HAUGHEY • Sarah ABBOTT • Samantha PENNELL • Kate HICKEN • Max NICKLESS • Phil MOSS • Jason TUTTY • Steve DYE • Jane STRATFORD • Jill HOPKINS • Maia HOPKINS • Lucy HOPKINS • Dee HARPER • Lisa MCLAREN • Ian HARPER • Kathy MILLER • Richard MILLER • Richard JONES • Marie BUYS • Jake MARTIN

Why not become a Homewood Hero? All you need to do is let anyone in High Viz that you can help at a future event and your on the team, you can even do some roles and run as well, so please give it a go, we wouldn't have Homewood without our lovely volunteers.
