Marlborough Common parkrun – Event 37 – 29 June 2019

Whew, what a scorcher!! The hottest day of the year so far meant that sensible Marlborough parkrunners took it pretty steady with their pacing! Good call. Nevertheless, it was a gorgeous morning on the common - those winter mornings in our ski jackets felt like a world away!


We were an international bunch today with visitors from Wales, Sweden, New Zealand and Malmesbury! We had a group of people from Pizza Express in Marlborough and Devizes, team-building as part of their fundraising efforts for MacMillan Cancer Support. Our first men's finisher was Michael Stone and our first women's finisher, Amber Eden, managed a new PB despite the heat. Nice work!


We are grateful as ever to the 21 hi-viz heroes who got up early to set the course out, help you park your car, cheer you round or work at the finish line. We couldn't do it without you. We love new volunteers - if you've not volunteered before, do have a go. It's a great way to become part of the parkrun community.


And week is the first week of our reverse-direction summer runs! We'll be running the course 'in reverse' for July and August so you might be able to snag a new PB! Do come along next week and enjoy that downhill run.
