It was a bit chilly on the riverside this morning. Life was back to ‘normal,’ with not a reindeer, Santa, elf or unicorn in sight. The rain threatened but thankfully didn’t materialise, and a respectable 156 of you joined us for the second Prudhoe Riverside parkrun of the year. 35 of you were first timers, including a posse from Elvet Striders, with ten of you completing your first ever parkrun, and 15 recording new Personal Bests. Well done all of you! Representatives of 25 different clubs took part, including visitors from Airdrie, Kendal, Keighley, Liverpool Uni, and Cornwall.
Today’s event was made possible by 28 wonderful volunteers. Run Director Helen mentioned in her pre-run brief that it would be great if everyone made volunteering one of their New Year’s resolutions. If you’ve not volunteered before, don’t worry – full training will be given and you can usually choose what you’d like to do. Contact us (please include your name, barcode number, preferred role and which Saturday you’d like to volunteer) at firstname.lastname@example.org
