The route is an undulating one with a drop down to the turnaround point and hence a climb back up. I’m pretty accident prone so heeded the warnings to look for tree roots and uneven ground and managed to stay upright. It is a beautiful run through the woods with the leaves beginning to turn and I’m sure the autumn colour will be appreciated as the year continues. I loved seeing the finish line through the archway!
Today we were joined by 95 runners. There were 24 people running at Oriam for the first time, of which 3 were doing their very first parkrun. Welcome to the parkrun family! We hope you enjoyed yourselves and will be back next week for more.
A massive 32 people worked extra hard and achieved PBs this week. What a fantastic achievement! A special mention for Geraldine Hodgkiss who completed her milestone 100th run. Congratulations!
As ever we were supported by the fantastic volunteers without whom parkrun wouldn’t happen. Next week the is a volunteer takeover by Heriot Watt Sports Union but please sign up to help in future weeks. It’s never too early to volunteer.
