Event 86 run report from Lucie Melen

Littleport parkrun
Event number 86
1st February 2020

This week 164 hardy folk braved the wind and the mud to complete Littleport parkrun. We welcomed 16 first timers to Littleport, including Jordi MOAT of Colchester Harriers, who came in as 1st woman with a time of 21:52. An impressive 10 of these were recording their first ever parkrun - a big HELLO to you all and welcome to the community. I’d like to give an especially big welcome to little Flavia ROLFE on her first parkrun as I believe she’s only 4!

Congratulations and celebrations are due to a wonderful four people who ran their 50th parkrun today - Rachel and Matthew WINSON, Alison CROSSMAN and Jenny JEFFREYS. Well Done and thank you for the chocolates! An impressive 49 PBs were achieved today, with times right through from 18:07 to 48:55, and every single one just as important to the achiever, I’m sure! Whilst not at Littleport but a way away in Cardiff, another PB was set today for the whole of parkrun - Charlotte ARTER ran 15:49, beating her own previous record as the fastest ever female.

You might have noticed we have a brand new “selfie board”! Do have a pose and share your pictures to spread the parkrun love.
