Ruchill parkrun #30 – November 4, 2017

Ruchill parkrun
Event number 30

That's right, 30 - it seems like only yesterday we began.

This week 32 people ran, jogged and walked the course, of whom 7 were first timers here, and 12 people recorded new Personal Bests, well done to each of you.

The event was made possible by 12 volunteers:

Joan MORRIS • Sarah SELF • Simon BARRETT • Barrie JOHNSTONE • Paul LENNIE • Lynsey PARKER • Caroline SMITH • Michael MCCANN • Simon HARTOG • Lauren WHITTAKER • Yevgen GORASH • Margaret NEWMAN


Special thanks to all of you, but perhaps just a special mention for Sarah SELF among this week's volunteers who traveled through from Edinburgh on one of her many parkrun volunteer tourism jaunts.

One of the most rewarding things about being involved with parkrun, amongst many of others of course, is welcoming newcomers along to their very first parkrun. Today, alongside six runners in the hundred club and a further two with over 300 parkruns in the bag, we had yet another making their debut parkrun at Ruchill - welcome to Katie TURNER - lets hope it is the first of many for you.
