Having had a couple of weeks off due to the wind and the damage from fallen trees it was great to be back. 196 runners, 24 volunteers and quite a few spectators braved the weather to turn out. There was a brief flurry of rain before the start but the run itself was only made difficult by the cross wind at the tractor turn and a small amount of mud on course. We noticed some very dirty legs at the finish and suspect people headed straight for the shower when they got home. By the time we finished though it was a lovely day.
There were 16 first timer runners today, 3 first time volunteers, and representatives of 16 different clubs took part. A testimony to the variety and inclusivity of Park Run.
You may have noticed something different out on course today - the marshals were a vision in pink. It was the first airing of our new vests and very smart they looked too. If you haven't volunteered before and think you'd look good in pink why not give it a try? It's really enjoyable and gives you a good feeling too.
21 recorded new Personal Bests! Well done to all of you. That's quite something given the weather conditions
NEXT WEEK WE CELEBRATE JOHN'S 100TH - not his birthday (as suggested by Rory) but the 100th time he has volunteered. Quite an achievement
