Event No 276 – A pacy start to the day and goodbye to Gary

8624c537-fb07-4339-9a3e-1705f6aeced1

This is  a funny part of December.  Christmas is in sight yet just out of reach.  Still a bit more work to be done and a lot more shopping.  We're ready to wind down for Christmas yet just need to make one more final push.  To help with putting more effort in we were lucky to have a pacer day today and very many thanks must go to our pacing volunteers not only for coming forward to help but running either on or very close to their allotted times.

Pacing must help because there were 25 new PBs today: many congratulations to: Sam Willis, Russell Cook, Joe Brooks, Kevin Gillespie, Dean Russell, Sebastian Judge, Jack Waterton, Robert Freshwater, Faye Morris, Martin Phillips, Lewis Claridge, Christel Wilkinson, Celine Whitehouse, Elizabeth Raine, Katie Froggatt, Joe Well, Michael Slade, Paul Cooper, Sean Wade-Bond,Jade Lewis, Clare Williams, Andrew Biggs, Emma Elkington, Luca Melis, and Heather Wheatley.

We were delighted that we had 13 first timers -one of whom (Gaetano Basiaco) was the first person home in 18.13 - very well done.  First woman back was Harriet Kealy in 21.43 - congratulations  to you both.

While were pleased too say hello to some new faces, it was also with a degree of sadness that we said au revoir - not goodbye - to Gary and Jacky O'Leary, who are moving away. Both are well known to Panshanger regulars and Gary was one of the founders of Panshanger parkrun.  They leave with all our best wishes in the next phase of their lives and we hope to see them back again soon.

Panshanger parkrun – 16th November. Tourists collecting P’s.

A clear but autumnal morning greeted the 325 people who ran, jogged and walked the course, of whom 33 were first timers and 28 recorded new Personal Bests. There were plenty of smiles at the finish, possibly relief at having completed the final muddy leg.

Visitors came from far and wide including Nottingam and Scunthorope, many visiting to collect a P for their parkrun alphabet collection.
