A big turn out at Potternewton this week, our third largest field to date and impressive given the weather forecast which was 90% chance of heavy rain.
Our numbers were boosted by the mini-mermaid runners who had clearly been in training as we noticed their accompanying adults often struggling to keep up ! We’re hoping some footage of the mini-mermaids at Potternewton will be featured on BBC Look North in the next couple of weeks !
We also welcomed visitors from across the country including as far away as Brighton and many regulars from our big sister parkrun at Roundhay which was cancelled due to the World Triathlon Event.
This week there were 14 lucky people who completed their first ever parkrun plus more who’ve not yet registered, including a family all taking part. In total 203 people ran, jogged and walked the course, of whom 34 recorded a new quickest time at Potternewton.
Huge thanks to the 16 volunteers who made this event possible, particularly in view of the changeable weather experienced. The team was: Alex BRADSHAW, Maureen COFFEY, Melvyn BURTON, Michael MANSFIELD, Lindsay LOWSON, Sean MULLANY, Emma JAQUES, Nick JAQUES, Maria ROBINSON, Victoria WOODWARD, Rhonda WARD, Eliza CAWSTON, Shoaib ALAM, Ben STRUTT, Sally MANSFIELD and Nick OLESKIW
