Event No 199

Sunny Bank Holiday - Event Number 199
The sun was out and 192 runners/walkers started the bank holiday at Rushmere parkrun. The first timers/tourist briefing was busy with 48 taking instructions on our beautiful course.
A big thank you to my amazing team of 14 volunteers who helped the event run smoothly today
Ciaran Forde - first timer to Rushmere was 1st male home in 17.21 I hear you lost a couple of seconds by almost taking a wrong turn. Ruth Pullinger was 1st lady home in 23.19.
Valerie Freestone - from Bedford was celebrating her 100 Milestone. I hope you enjoyed Rushmere please bring all your friends and family back to Rushmere soon. Although please Simon Cole feel free not to make such a dramatic finish and fall at my feet every time you visit.
Enjoy the rest of this sunny bank holiday.
Don't forget next week is Hawaiian Fancy dress for our 200th event
Take care
