As today’s Run Director, I’m (unofficially) declaring this morning the muddiest Prudhoe Riverside parkrun since our records began. The puddles on the main path were more akin to water jumps, and made for a challenging 5k for the 69 of you who ran, jogged and walked the course this morning. Nine of you were first timers at Prudhoe Riverside, including two who woke up this morning, looked at the weather and thought ‘Perfect conditions for my first ever parkrun!’
We don’t usually mention the names of those who get a PB, as there are usually too many of you, but today is an exception. Most of you settled for getting round without falling over, so congratulations go to Louise Allen, the only person to improve on a previous time! I’m sure normal service will resume next Saturday, assuming it’s stopped raining by then...
The event was made possible by 18 fantastic, volunteers who were in fine voice, despite the conditions. Our thanks go to:
Joanne LUCKING • Lalage BROWN • Richard WEYMES • Alison HABEBI • Mel REED • Jane MORTON • Paul RAFFERTY • Katharine RUSSELL • Donna MAUGHAN • Helen BOADEN • Richard HESLOP • Janine CALKIN • Rachael TURNBULL • Nicola MACLEAN • Simon ALLEN • Simon HEAL • Sharon CARR • Robin BERKLEY
