Nobles parkrun Event #77 – 25th May 2019 TT Practice Week

Well its officially here.....TT practice week is underway, well it was! Much like the opening of the Mountain Road one way ( a whole 7 mins before being closed) we eventually lost the battle with the weather and practice was moved to Sunday. Luckily we had no problems as the sun greeted over 100 runners

Firstly, a quick update on John Tipping. John fell on lap two, hitting his head as he fell - we took John to A+E where he was patched up and given the all clear. Thankyou to all those that stopped and ensured John was looked after and his situation was communicated to the Events Team. John would like to pass on his thanks to everyone that helped and showed such kindness. The picture below was taken after John had been cleared and allowed to return to Castletown to catch up with his friends and family - John will return next year

Thankyou to all the marshals that helped close off the event in our absence and managed so wonderfully to control our car parking arrangements - heroes one and all

Our marshalling team was boosted this week by visitors Freya and Katie Ehlen, who whilst supporting Brad Ehlen offered to don the heroes hi-vis - thankyou ladies and well done Brad on your 290th run

25 5 Visiting Marshals

TT started and brought us our first two wheeled runner. With our TT event next Saturday we hope to see a few more too - please be careful when parking due to the uneven ground.

Belated birthday wishes also to Ollie Kennaugh who was 7 on Saturday, and joined us for his first ever run, as did Dad Leigh - pictured below with Issy and Jane (Sis and Mum). Enjoy your weekend guys

25 5 Happy Birthday

We also met this intrepid due - Mark Heaney and Mari Hansen. They used Nobles to achieve there '5k+ every day for 31 days' challenge, brilliant job, well done...

25 5 5K+ 31 days

And finally, a massive well done to our parkrunners that took part in the Edinburgh half and full marathons on Saturday. Bring your bling Saturday!

First race day exciting. We will be posting during the week to ensure we can get those without transport to Conrhenny....and more importantly back again

Stay safe...see you Saturday
