Fortunately, Storm Dennis stayed away long enough to allow event #60 to go ahead, albeit with some wind and rain, especially on the back straight! This week's Run Director, Michael Bruce, did a sterling job on his first time at the helm!
Of the 126 parkrunners who braved the less-than-perfect conditions, 11 were first timers to Market Rasen Racecourse. We hope you enjoyed the venue and the hospitality and hope to see you back again soon. 15 parkrunners recorded a PB and earned the right to ring the bell. Many congratulations to you all! One runner ran their first ever parkrun with us today. Welcome to the parkrun family and we hope come back and visit us soon. There were representatives from 13 different clubs and tourists hailed from Peterborough and Newark.
There were no running milestones reached this week but 126 people are one step closer to earning their next t-shirt!
This week the top three finishing men were:
1. Vincent Riviere- 17:17
2. Simon Daniel- 17:40
3. Raymond Clayton- also 18:39
Whilst the first three ladies through the finishing funnel were:
1. Janine Stones- 20:13
2. Helen Shillings- 21:02
3. Rosie Earndon- 21:52 PB
Our course records remain at 15:11 for the men and 16:31 for the ladies.

A big thank you to all our volunteers this week who did an amazing job as always. For one volunteer, Robin Harrison, event 60 marked his 25th time of volunteering. Many thanks, Robin and we hope to see you in your new t-shirt soon. Without the volunteers, these events couldn’t go ahead so please get in touch if you think you can become a high vis hero. We'll give you full training on the morning and promise it will be lots of fun.
You can see the future volunteer roster here: please get in touch if you'd like to join the volunteering fun.
Thanks as always to our supporters; Market Rasen Round Table, Duckworths, PK Construction, Brianplant, Smiffys, Nicholsons and of course, Market Rasen Racecourse.
