Run Report 07/07/18 – Liz Kershaw (with help from Digby the dog!)

Hi Huddersfield!!! Thank you for having us to visit, what an amazing park and a fab team you have. Here is Digby’s run report:


My name is Digby and I’m 5 months old. I’ve been parkrunning for 3 months now. I know, I know, I’m too little to do it all myself, but my Mum’s have been encouraging me to at least do the first 3km and one day I’ll live up to my nickname of “parkrun pointer”! Greenhead Park is a brilliant place to parkrun, loads of paths and junctions, lots of amazing things to smell, other dogs to chase.
I had a great time! Becky Burdon was the boss today, and gave a fab introduction to everyone. It was quite a long one today, only because so many people were running milestones….. 50: Suzy Overton, Brendan Halliday, Ron Lister; 100: William Rose; 150: Fred Iyekekpolor; 250: Jeanette Pierson, Matthew Pattison; 300: Lynne Mannion!

Luc Burnip finished in 16:50, Olly Williams in 17:34 and Jamie Brannan in 17:48. They all ran very fast. One day I know I’ll run that fast, although I don’t think either of my Mum’s will ever be able to keep up with me!
There were 610 runners and walkers, 75 PBs, and 23 brand new parkrunners (I hope you get the bug like I have!) A massive thank you to all the lovely people in bright yellow, especially all the ones who rubbed my ears,
I do love a good ear massage; parkrun wouldn’t exist without you guys, and all your cheering helps us get round. I hope you all have a great weekend in the sunshine. I’m off to have a nap now, all the excitement is just too much for this little puppy. Hope to see you at another parkrun soon.
