Prudhoe Riverside parkrun #164 – 18/01/20

Today Prudhoe Riverside welcomed a takeover by Red Kite Runners, they officially get together on Tuesdays and Thursdays at 6:30pm meeting at Swalwell Juniors Football Club so if you are local then pop along to see them.  It was lovely to have you all and hope that you enjoyed your morning with us.

It was a tad cold and our volunteers were soon doing the dance of the frozen volunteer around the cones in the funnel area – would make good morris dancers!

However the cold snap did not deter 185 of you who ran, jogged and walked the course, of whom 26 were first timers and 28 recorded new Personal Bests. Representatives of 21 different clubs took part, we hope to see you all again soon.

We had a birthday boy this morning too and only his second parkrun, thankfully he remembered to stop running and hand his token in this time…….happy birthday Jason Seymour!

We also had a visitor from Wreake Runners in Thurmaston (Leicester) – We have ways of finding our visitors even when you don’t shout out when I ask if we have any guests, Gavin Speed – your surname didn’t let you down as you bagged yourself a nice PB too, well done!

I know I waffle on about ‘funnel duckers’ (I do have to pronounce that ever so carefully) however this morning you were all so well behaved and we had no incidents what so ever! Thank you so much, makes my life so much easier when processing the results.

I just love volunteering – I must do getting up earlier on a weekend than I do during the week! It’s worth it to see so many of you enjoying our parkrun, getting out there and just doing it, and all our lovely volunteers who brave the cold every weekend to make parkrun happen, we really couldn’t do it without you so thank you everyone.
