After a stonking 637 runners turned up the previous Saturday I was a little apprehensive as to what would happen on my watch as Run Director this week.
The temperature was a little cooler but the rain held off and we welcomed a wonderful 522 runners and walkers to Horsham park.
20 people came along to parkrun for the very first time and we also said hello to 13 tourists. We look forward to welcoming you all back soon!
I had to count this next stat about 5 times as I couldn’t believe it but an amazing 95 of you achieved a personal best time. Well done boys and girls!
We also applauded those running their milestones this week:
10 runs (juniors only) – M Canham
50 runs – Wendy Lord, Glenn Thomas, Tom Cockram, Michael Thornton.
100 runs – Victoria Saunders (also got a PB!), Alan MacLachlan, Robert Haigh, Richard Shergold.
As I mentioned earlier I was a little nervous about what the morning would bring and it was not without its challenges. With the help and support of the volunteers including members of the core team we managed to get the results out to you all.
Thank you all for making this another memorable and enjoyable parkrun and I will see you again, same time, same place, on Saturday.
