Ruchill parkrun Event number 14

Ruchill parkrun
Event number 14
15th July 2017

With liquid sunshine yet again in Glasgow, this week 20 people ran, jogged and walked the course, of whom 11 were first timers and 5 recorded new Personal Bests - well done to all. It may not have been the biggest turnout but we certainly did not lack effort and enthusiasm.

We are always delighted to see people complete their first ever parkrun with us, so well done to Marion DORAN, Gemma SMITH, Kristin GEPPERT, and Dale PEDERSON, and thank you for choosing Ruchill for your debut.

The event was made possible by 12 volunteers:

Robbie WISHART • Alasdair DUKE • Kevin FARMER • Simon BARRETT • Lynsey PARKER • James MCLAUGHLIN • Katie MILNE • Jonas LENNIE • Susan MCMILLAN • Catriona SCOTT • Deborah (Debbie) PARKER • Agnieszka MAGIERECKA

To join this heroic band of volunteers - without whom we simply would not have an event - please email us and get yourself on the roster.

Today's full results and a complete event history can be found on the Ruchill parkrun Results Page - congratulations to the first three over the line, all sub 20 minutes which is no mean feat given Ruchill's 'undulations'.
