Rising Sun parkrun Event Number 200 11th September 2021

What a beautiful morning to celebrate our 200th run, it was lovely to see so many of you join us whether that be as a park runner, a volunteer or a spectator. Thank you to the many visitors who took the time to tell us how friendly our volunteers are, we know that we have the best volunteers and it makes us very proud, but it is nice to hear it from visitors to our fabulous parkrun. If you would like to volunteer, drop us a message at risingsun@parkrun.com
This morning we welcomed 60 first timers with us and 36 of our park runners bagged themselves a PB. Congratulations to Michael McAuley and Andy Duguid on their 100th parkrun and Karen Hulme on her 350th parkrun, great achievement guys.
Well done to Philippa Lilly who received a tub of celebrations chocolates for being our 200th runner. Philippa ran today pushing her beautiful daughter Robin in her buggy. It’s a double celebration for them as today just happens to be Robin’s 1st birthday. Happy Birthday Robin, we hope that you all have a great day celebrating.
Good luck to those of you doing the Great North Run tomorrow, we look forward to seeing all of the t-shirts next week.
Have a great week and we’ll see you next Saturday
