Good morning ladies and gentlemen. Welcome aboard flight LPR#91 to elation, hysteria, pride, or wherever else you would like your final destination to be. We have perfect flying conditions today although the low sun may cause a few of you to wish to lower your sun visors as we approach carnage corner. I would like to thank you all for taking your seats so speedily this morning, some in record time. Huge congratulations to Edward Smith who made it to the seat one in a personal best time of 19 minutes and 40 seconds closely followed by Simon Mace and John O’Gorman who completed the front row on the left side of the plane. Our front row of ladies today are Katherine Gourd, Eloise Kate Billington and Caroline Beechy. As always the ladies are on the right.
You will experience a long period of elevation today which can cause some turbulence so we ask you to please support each other through this period as being a 2 lap course you will experience it twice. However, for those of you who have paid for the premium garmin or fitbit package on board today will be very impressed with your twin peaks on strava. As we lower the altitude you may notice some slippy, muddy conditions and we do apologise for this but we cannot control mother nature. Should you feel unsteady on your feet we recommend adjusting your own foot positioning first before assisting others. There are no life jackets on board but a full first aid kit and defib machine are held at the finish funnel should they be required. Your amazing crew will direct you around the course towards the exit and our mini marshals will happily provide you with extra power to get you through this 5km flight with a simple high 5. No refreshments will be served during the flight but there is homemade cake to greet you on landing, courtesy of Helena who today celebrates her 50th park run.
We have 117 passengers on board today, 63 males and 54 females, so we particularly appreciate the efforts of Alistair Penman, Eloise Kate Billington, and Alex Forrest for pre notifying us of their Vegan meal requests. Our regular travellers from Hitchin Running club, North Herts RRC, have agreed to stay quiet during the first timers briefing to allow all our newbies and tourists the chance to find out what they have really let themselves in for aboard a LPR flight.
Your Captain today is Laura Kemp and she has a fantastic crew who have all given up their time voluntarily this morning to direct you through your flight, keep you safe and ensure you arrive at the finish funnel in the best possible time. We are always seeking to recruit new crew members so please press the call button above your head to email our team who will happily advise you of the process and welcome you aboard our happy team.
Ladies and gentlemen, we recognise there are hundreds of other parkrun airlines you could have run with today so we appreciate you choosing LPR and look forward to welcoming you back again soon.
