Ruchill parkrun #79, 24th November 2018

This week 63 people ran, jogged and walked the Ruchill whale, of whom 18 were first timers (including a couple of visitors from Belfast and another from Kraków in Poland) and 14 recorded new Personal Bests. Representatives of 18 different clubs took part. Congratulations to all our runners, especially to Alexandra NORRIS. Alex became the first person to complete 50 parkruns exclusively at Ruchill this morning, narrowly beating me to that title by a single run. Congratulations to her! It's great that we have a core group of regular runners, but we are grateful for all our visitors too. Please do come back of you enjoyed your time at Ruchill!

The event was made possible by 12 volunteers. Thanks to:
