Beautiful sunshine and spring flowers this morning provided an appropriate backdrop as we welcomed another 21 first timers, meaning we have now reached over 1000 parkrunners at Ruchill. For us, this is one thing that stands out among the many that make us proud: the fact that in the space of our first year we have welcomed over a thousand people from all over Glasgow, across Scotland, all parts of the UK, and from around the world, to our wee parkrun. That really demonstrates the magic of parkrun and the reach that it has.
Well done to each and every person who has completed our parkrun over this past year, perhaps with special mention to Evangelie DUNN for being the 1000th to cross the finish line.
This week 55 people ran, jogged and walked the course, and 11 recorded new Personal Bests. Representatives of 8 different clubs took part.
The event was made possible by 13 volunteers:
David BOYLE • Liz CORBETT • Caroline HEVER • Chris HEVER • Dave LOVELL • Simon BARRETT • Lynsey PARKER • Wendy GERVAIS • Petra SAMBALE • Jonas LENNIE • Alexandra NORRIS • Lawrence GERVAIS • Kawei LEUNG
