Penrose parkrun #260 7th March 2020

Today was International Women's Day at parkrun and Penrose was fully manned by a wonderful team of ladies. Not only just our normal volunteering positions, but as it was the first Saturday in the month we had a whole team of lady pacers led by the legend that is Emma Stepto with the 18 minute pacer vest. Emma was followed by Kirsty Medlock pacing 25 minutes, Becky Hughes pacing 27 minutes, Jan Watson pacing 30 minutes, Morwenna Bennett pacing 32 minutes, Stacey Hocking pacing 35 minutes and the wonderful Jane Pett complete with buggy pacing 37 minutes. Thank you to the  rest of amazing volunteers, it's people just like you who make parkrun happen.

Thanks to Active Cornwall we had some lovely pink pedometers to give away, if you didn't have one and want one I have 15 left over, just ask for yours next week

Penrose parkrun#258 – 22nd February 2020

After a horrible drizzly start while I was putting out the signs, things brightened up a bit for the runners and it was almost perfect running conditions in the end, in fact the first two men home both  did PB's today.  We had a smattering of first timers and several tourists today.

We had Alan Jones completing his 250th parkrun today, well done to Alan.  We also had Adam Williams and Alistair Miller completing their 50th, both running PB's in the process and our Tail Walker today, Matt Johns, completing his 50th too.

Unfortunately we suffered a technical problem and lost all the results from one of the barcode scanners.  This resulted in a few emails and detective work to fill in a few of the blanks, hopefully everyone has got their times in and correct by now.

A big thank you to all today's volunteers, especially Charlie Johns, one of our youngest ever Tail Walkers, completing his first parkrun today!!  All today's stats are below.  See you again in a couple of weeks.

Penrose Cancellation 15th February 2020

Hi all you lovely parkrunners. I'm really sorry but with the weather warnings and gusts forecast at 70mph, it's just too dangerous to run through Penrose on Saturday. Craig and I don't take this decision lightly, we don't want to disappoint anyone but a falling branch from 30 feet up, driven by that wind is seriously going to ruin someone's weekend. The most important thing is that we take care and are all fit to parkrun another day.
