The rain is just a state of mind, and it seemed ok in the end. Certainly volunteering on the platform was ok (!), our timekeepers ran the phone app beautifully with phones sheltered inside plastic bags (so don’t forget that tip if you’re volunteering) and most runners returned not looking too soggy!
I always enjoy seeing and chatting to the tourists, and they seemed to represent Bournemouth to Scotland this morning. I hope the contingent from Carlisle, representing Parkinson’s awareness, enjoyed the course too.
Our first two finishers came through scanning without their barcodes this morning, so being a teacher, I sent them into the corner to think about what they’d done. Meanwhile, Thomas Logie got to claim third place, for first known parkrunner…
We’ll done to Holly Wootten, our first female finisher, and well done to the 30 of you who recorded PBs.
Jenni “not you again!” Cunniffe (sorry I’m always so rude to you Jenny!) continues to run with baby clearly very on the way, and Lesley Tickell put a top stint in with the buggy. Very impressive, you too.
I’ll be mainly drying gear out, sorting tokens, and drinking coffee, and if you’d like to be part of the volunteering fun next week, please get in touch via firstname.lastname@example.org
The usual stats are all below. Look forward to seeing you all again soon.
