Event number 10
17th June 2017
This week 49 people ran, jogged and walked the course, and incredibly almost half of those (23) were first timers. We also had 8 people who recorded new Personal Bests today - well done to all. Representatives of 12 different clubs took part.
Special mention this week to Agnieszka MAGIERECKA, Fabiola CHIRA, Del MCLAUGHLIN and Chris CAIRNS, each on their first ever parkrun, and Kirk SHEPHERD who visited us from way, way down south. Hope to see you all at Ruchill Park again soon.
Despite the lack of biscuits there was a great turnout at the golf course afterwards too for tea, coffee and chat!
The event was made possible by 13 volunteers - once again thanks to each and every one of them:
Simon BARRETT • Charles STUART • Barrie JOHNSTONE • Lynsey PARKER • James MCLAUGHLIN • Laura THOW • Susan MCMILLAN • Chris GUNN • Lynn MACKENZIE • Finn BOYD • Dave MACINTOSH • Piotr CHMIELINSKI • Alex PARKER
Remember we are always grateful to hear from anyone who wants to volunteer for the coming weeks, so please don't hesitate to get in touch.
