Back home at last...….to the Park anyway.
After five weeks of being away we came back to find out what they had done to the park.....well.....
Compared to last year, fairly unscathed. The main part of the top field had been used as a car park for the TT fortnight, but likely a little section has an impact on our route.
A couple of the matting sections crossed the path by the church as well as the final uphill to the finish section......but with a good bit of forewarning and a couple of cones by the time we started - we survived (despite forgetting to raise it at the pre run briefing...ooooops)
Once we had remembered how to do the set up, we were raring to go by 08:45, and despite the drizzle we were pleased to meet a few visitors again this week.
It was also good to see a few old faces too, as some had not been able to make Conrhenny during our temporary move.
The weather meant limited pics, but we grabbed a couple - with Max nowhere to be seen (probably finished) heres 'Senior Hammall' in full flight
…..chased down not far behind....
Don't forget those hardy volunteers out there though, come rain (and usually more rain) or shine they turn out week after week. We would love to see more of you join the back room team - fancy it? If you want to try one of our easy and very rewarding roles once in a while please let us know - via email or social media. The coming weeks rosters are available here: https://www.parkrun.org.uk/nobles/futureroster/
One of our prime volunteering roles is Tailwalker - a most responsible position, as the role holder ensures all get round safely - offering assistance and encouragement where necessary, and more importantly making sure no one finishes last (or behind them!). Plus a bonus....you get both volunteer and run credit.....woohoo!
Heres our most recent Tailwalker - adding an extra special tail....'Snoopy', see you soon Jon Watterson.
We look forward to seeing you all next Saturday, whilst we keep a mindful eye on all those heroic fools taking part in next weeks Parish Walk......barmy, absolutely barmy
Good luck to you all
