35 volunteers made it possible for 321 people to run, jog and walk on a very cold and misty morning.
A number of the volunteers were Harpenden Arrows, they were there supporting the graduates from their beginners course. Well done Juliana JONES, Jennie LASKAR, Geraldine ARCHBOLD-SHORE, Camilla TEMPLE, Maggie MOORE, Marta SERRA, Supirya KUMAR and Chloe HISKETT.
We had 24 first timers, 34 PB's and 5 people joining milestone clubs. Danielle PAULING, Khaleel MIAH and Shakeel MIAH all joined the 10 club. Kelly BYWATERS joined the 50 club and Tina GILES joined the 100 club.
First gent across the line was Rob BARNES in 18:27 and the first lady was Abi BROWN in 22:34.
I believe parkrun is all about numbers and here are some I like: 23:00 Hugo VEAZEY, 26:00 Omar SULTON, 29:00 Jenny FLANNAGAN and 33:00 Motin MIAH. 32:23 Ziaul LOTF and 38:38 Supriya KUMAR who was one of the Arrow graduates. And my favourite of the day 33:33 Samantha COLLETT.
