Run Report May 4th 2019 – Star Wars Day

Well the "4th/force" was definitely with Marple parkrunners today! The weather couldn't have been better: bright sunshine, blue skies and a lovely "fresh" wind.

Clearly the weather had a positive impact on the Marple parkrunning community - 228 runners turned out for their usual Saturday morning fix, of whom 19 were first timers and 33 recorded new Personal Bests. Representatives of 17 different clubs took part.. There were also a few amazing milestones to celebrate:
- Gina Hitchen's 100th run;
- Elsie Evan's 250th run; and
- Graham Peak's 300th run!!!
A fabulous turnout and everyone was certainly in a cheery mood.

Walking the course bright and early to set up confirmed good conditions - a bit of morning dew but nothing else to worry about. Here's hoping the weather holds as we march into May.....
