Ruchill parkrun #31 – 11/11/17

With the first frost of the winter season, the Ruchill parkrun volunteers finally got the chance to make use of the handily installed grit bins in the park! Capturing a few latecomers from the cancelled Victoria parkrun, this week 54 people ran, jogged and walked the course, of whom 20 were first timers and 5 recorded new Personal Bests. Representatives of 9 different clubs took part. We hope those who got the chance to try out our route enjoyed the challenge and come back again soon!

The event was made possible by 11 fantastic volunteers, who put in a great effort making sure the run could go ahead, and kept a good eye on our runners on a wet and frosty course. So many thanks to:

Lynsey PARKER • Caroline SMITH • Wendy GERVAIS • Jeanette C. CRAIG • Allen CAMPBELL • Alistair MITCHELL • Julia SCOTT • Finn BOYD • Margaret NEWMAN • Barbara WATT • Lawrence GERVAIS
