Following last weekends double disappointment, parkrun number 232 finally took place this morning under the Run Directorship of Amelie Wallace.
Today, we welcomed tourists from Mile End, Bakewell and Wrexham as well as 12 first timers. Four runners were completing their 50th parkruns along with Chris Arkell who was running his 100th. There was also a belated 10th birthday shout out to Frank Shepherd who was running his 10th ( he did want to do it before his birthday but last weeks cancellation put paid to that). They were among the 410 runners/joggers/walkers who lined up at the start in near perfect weather conditions.
The first male to finish today was Aaron Burgess and the first female was Katy Bradley who finished 45th in a personal best time of 21:53. As well as Katy, there were 67 other participants who achieved PB’s today. Well done to you all.
Finally, a big thank you to Maggie and all her hi viz heroes who all looked resplendent in the sunshine this morning. Don’t forget to view the future roster if you would like to volunteer at a future event.
