Penrose parkrun Event # 239 12th October 2019

It looked as though we would have a wet one as it rained most of the night, but the rain held off this morning, and there was still a healthy turnout. It was still a bit boggy underfoot at the finish, however, and I think that may be the last finish in our usual spot for this winter. Mounts Bay Harriers came down this morning with their juniors, who are all pretty quick! The leaves are starting to fill the pathway and it was my first dark setup of the Autumn.

This week 232 people ran, jogged and walked the course, of whom 18 were first timers and 43 recorded new Personal Bests. Representatives of 22 different clubs took part.

The event was made possible by 14 volunteers:

Yvonne TURNER • Sarah ALLEN • Ross ATKINSON-BEAUMONT • Jules LEWIS • Marie KAY • Diane WARREN • Robert BURROWS • Mark DORRELL • Hayley ORCHARD • Susanne WOOD • Poppy WOOD • John GORTON • Jess WHITEHOUSE • Phoebe LAY
