On a windy and grey Saturday morning, 290 people ran, jogged and walked the course, of whom 51 were first timers and 26 recorded new Personal Bests.
We had 11 people brand new to parkrun! Welcome to Jacob, Samuel, Kevin, Charlotte, Peter, Shandiz, Sorrel, David, Helen, Moira and Sheila. We hope to see you again.
Representatives of 28 different clubs took part.
Thanks, as always to our fabulous volunteers! Can we please ask that volunteers arrive with plenty of time to spare before 9 am. This prevents the Volunteer Coordinators from having a little panic that key roles are not filled just before 9 and gives us plenty of time to hand out high vis, instructions and pacing vests and still get ourselves to the start line if we are also running.
Look at our happy volunteers (with special guest appearance from Rami as RD)
The event was made possible by 32 volunteers:
Stephen KNOTT • Gareth PERRY • Emma BRISTOW • Liz JUDD • Emily ROLLINS • Catherine SWEBY • Georgia CARRICK • Verona NI DRISCEOIL • Stuart ROBERTS • Alex PITKIN • Andrzej KUICH • Emma TITCOMB • Ken FORD • David SPENCER • Bridget DIBBEN • Adriana KEMPT • Rami MALKI • Antony BRADLEY • Mark DYSON • Kaitlin EMERY • Carl BENNETT • Caroline SHARP • Jeff JOHNSTONE • Enrique MARTIN • Lily GORROD • James MARTIN • Carol GRAY • Marius STANFORD • Alastair SHAW • Dave ROBINSON • Kirsty PUGH • Laurie COOPER
Pacing is always a good way to volunteer and still get a run credit. We had some fabulous pacing this week – Alex bang on 19 minutes, Dave bang on 21 minutes, Stuart at 22:02 and Enrique at 23:58. Cath was pacing 26, Laurie at 29, Andrzej at 25, Mark at 30 and Adriana as walk/jog pacer.
The first 3 finishers didn’t scan, but the first lady was one of our first timers – Heather Stevens.
Another of our first timers, Jaclyn McGlasson ran her 50th parkrun - but it wasn't only her 50th parkrun, it was her 50th different parkrun! We also had Jon Rheault, Sarah Peck, Rosie Sauvage and Annie Drynan celebrating their 50th parkruns. Well done
