Little Stoke parkrun 20 February 2016

As a Run Director I find that during the week leading up to the Saturday I check the weather about 3 times a day. This week was no different and it didn’t look promising. However even though we had had overnight rain between 8am and 10 am it was dry which was a pleasant surprise especially after the last couple of very wet Saturday mornings.

We had 257 runners with some parkrun tourists from Huntingdon and Cumbria who were staying in the local area and wanted to show their support to keep Little Stoke parkrun at Little Stoke Park. We had 29 new runners to Little Stoke with 9 runners doing their first ever parkrun.

Congratulations to

Junior – Robert Kiekuth on completing his 10th run

Abi Palmer, Chris Tongue, Dave Horne, Trudy Clark who all completed their 50th parkrun and Sylvia Crump who completed her 100th parkrun.

Well done to you all.

Finally thanks to all our volunteers this week. Parkrun can’t happen without volunteers and it certainly helps the Run Directors to have a complete roster well in advance.

Have a good week and see you next Saturday
