I had a week off run report writing last week as while our runners and volunteers were just as awesome I was lacking in inspiration. However this week the inspiration is back.
Firstly we had 6 runners all wearing a parkrun 250 T shirt. Obviously that meant they had all run at least 250 parkruns. Amazingly they weren't together and it wasn't planned - definitely the most we've had in 1 week. Another unusual happening this week was that we had more females than males 28 vs 16 which was great to see.
We had another alphabet runner bagging his M for Marshall Drive (and travelling from Ponteland to run!)
A lively group of ladies from Ripon staying in Saltburn for the weekend had an action packed day planned. Following parkrun, they were taking part in a surfing tournament, then beach cricket and ending with well deserved cocktails. However not mentioning any names at least one of the ladies was going to sneak off shopping instead of surfing.
Finally Laura ran with her mum Karen who is one of our regulars. Laura admirably ran the 5k as part of the 100k Stand Up To Cancer campaign.
We continue to have family members run / volunteer. We have sisters, brothers , fathers with sons/ daughters, mothers with sons/ daughters, grandads with grandsons, not to mention husbands and wives. Good to see that motivation runs through families.
Well done Jo for sorting out the results and well done to David for capturing our parkrun in action.
This week 46 people ran, jogged and walked the course, of whom 18 were first timers and 8 recorded new Personal Bests. Representatives of 13 different clubs took part.
