Prospect parkrun #80 – Happy New Year

Run report by Laura TAYLOR

The first day of a new decade brought overcast grey skies to Prospect parkrun but we could not complain as it was a dry day which meant the mud was finally starting to dry in places making our parkrun a little bit less muddy compared to what it has been over the Christmas period.

Despite the gloomy grey sky, the Run Director for the first Prospect parkrun event of 2020 (Dan, the man) was full of good humour and smiles during the run briefing. Luckily for Dan he recently went to the opticians and found out he had 20-20 vision. Ah we all laughed during the briefing!

We welcomed 219 people to Prospect this morning, it was wonderful to see the regular faces but also newbie's too! On that note, we had 7 first timers to parkrun, ever! We hope you enjoyed your first parkrun and we will see you again in the future.

One of the reasons why I enjoy the run report writing is to congratulate those attaining Milestone runs. Today we had plenty of milestones to celebrate. Huge congratulations to the following parkrunners:

10 (juniors) Jonah DUNFORD
50 Claire RAYNER
100 Laura TAYLOR
Victoria CAULTON
250 Krysia SMITH

On a final note, thank you as always to the Run Directors, Core Team and the many volunteers that have made Prospect parkrun the success it is. I urge you all to have a go at the many volunteer roles we have available at Prospect. Volunteering will add that special extra element to your parkrun experience.

Once again, wishing everyone a happy new year and thank you to everyone who has been involved in making Prospect parkrun a success in 2019
