As we are now well into the summer holiday period, the volunteer roster is increasingly becoming harder to fill. Our August VC , Annie has been working extremely hard to ensure all volunteer roles are filled by Saturday but this has required several appeals for support. Ideally, we would want to get our roster completed as early as possible so the roster can be sent out to all volunteers who have offreed their services. Could we ask that Killerton registrants look at the roster for the rest of August ( and beyond!) and offer any support they can? Please help to make Annie's role as easy as possible this week! Thank you for your support.
Following this Saturday's run, I had a conversation with Phil the Head Ranger at Killerton and somebody we deal with regularly. Phil needed to pass on some concern from staff at the Stable Cafe regarding the consumption of cake in the cafe and within the yard area. It would appear that such consumption is not felt to be appropriate and is happening very regularly ( as would be expected as runners celebrate milestone events). We have therefore been asked to consume such cakes beyond the cafe/yard area, perhaps around the gazebo area or close to the finish. As we are guests of the NT, and to maintain our good working relationship, we would ask that this request is adhered to.
This week's report has been written by Oli Clarke one of our teenage volunteers.
After last week’s cancellation because of high winds, today was a very muddy 430th run at Killerton parkrun.
We had 288 runners with 23 new PB’s.
There were 44 first timers, with visitors from Australia, Nottingham and Kent, 13 of which completed their first ever parkrun.
We hope to see you all again!
Lucy DALE completed her 10th parkrun
Dan POMEROY completed his 50th parkrun
Shaun FRY completed his 200th Killerton parkrun
Duncan HARRIS completed his 100th Killerton parkrun.
One runner gained an age-related score over 80% - David Wilkinson at 81.36%, and for the women, Sue Smye received the highest age-related grading at 77.96%.
Out of all of the 288 people that ran, jogged and walked with us this morning, there were people from 30 different running clubs like Cullompton Crawlers, Sidmouth RC, South West Road Runners and Tiverton Harriers.
