Warmer climes than last week were about this morning, but the season must have many of you in its thrall. It thankfully didn’t stop ninety five of you from joining in with our monthly pacer week. And pacing is NOT easy, I was 35 minute pacer this week, and the theory of running seven minute kilometers is MUCH easier than in practice!
Anyway, nine of you scored new PB’s, including fellow pacer Billy Maitland, who was desperately trying to swap his bib at the start and just cruised around in his usual laid back style. Six of you took on our course for the first time, and we hope you come back soon for another go.
Billy and I were joined by these other hi-viz heroes, and the event just couldn’t go ahead without them:
Joanne LUCKING • Graham YATES • Richard WEYMES • Mel REED • Paul RAFFERTY • Ben MITCHELL • Jean CALLENDER • Peter MCMULLON • Jo PAGE • Richard HESLOP • Haydn WEYMES • Janine CALKIN • Claire DAVIES • Joanne EDWARDS • Billy MAITLAND • Marzena MARZEC • Victoria LANCASTER • Simon HEAL • Paul TAIT • Pam RAFFERTY • Sharon CARR • Frances FEWSTER • Robin BERKLEY
Want to give something really special this Christmas? Then volunteer! It gives a nice warm feeling inside. Just check the roster here - https://www.parkrun.org.uk/prudhoeriverside/futureroster/ - and drop an email to email@example.com with your barcode number and role preference. Nothing is too difficult and full training is given. Plus, I’M Run Director next week, so you just know it’ll be fun! Seriously though, we really do rely on volunteers, parkrun just can’t happen without them, they’re even more important than the runners. I mean, we love them too, but...y’know…
I’m going to sign off before I dig myself an even bigger hole. Enjoy the rest of your weekend!
