Peacehaven parkrun #99

Another great Peacehaven parkrun saw 95 lovely people making three laps of the Centenary Park this week. Despite it being a bit overcast the rain held off as we welcomed 16 first timers and clapped and cheered 17 to a PB.

It was good to see Lisa Dickson getting a run in today. She is one of our stalwart volunteers and spends her Saturday mornings, more often than not, in hi-viz. Taking a break from running was regular attender Alison Evans who was on finish tokens and was ably assisted by Carol Moore. Alison said she knew when she had to hand out a token as she could hear the heavy breathing of the runners as they made their way down the finish funnel – there were some seriously big finishes!

Many thanks for bearing with us as we processed the results. I hope we have them all correct now. If not, please get in touch and we will sort this out.

As a run director, you are dependent on the volunteers on the day to ensure everything goes smoothly. Today was no exception with the fantastic volunteers stepping up to their roles to ensure the runners had a great experience. Huge thanks to each of you for making my job such an easy one. It was lovely to see some new faces and people trying out new roles all of which they made look easy. Without the volunteers we couldn't host the parkrun so please do consider volunteering from time to time. Oh and did we mention there’s a purple t-shirt for volunteering 25 times? https://www.parkrun.org.uk/peacehaven/volunteer/

And finally, next week is our 100th run. Please do come along and use the occasion to invite friends and relatives to try our course. The more the merrier and #DFYB!
