Rushmoor parkrun # 282 – 8th February 2020

Having read forecasts at the end of the week about Storm Ciara coming in who knew what weather we were in for … but Saturday morning brought blue skies, sunshine a bit of a breeze – pretty good conditions for a February run. 625 parkrunners obviously thought so too as they joined us on our course this morning. Well done to all of you – good run/walk/jog?

We welcomed 55 parkrunners who had never run at Rushmoor before and 17 of you were running a parkrun for the very first time. Welcome to the parkrun community and welcome to Rushmoor. We hope you had a good time this morning and will be back to join us for another run soon.

There are also 94 of you now celebrating a new PB this morning. Were you helped by this mornings team of pacers or running in your own zone? Well done to all you either way and thank you to our pacers!

Amongst us there were also some milestone parkrunners. Well done to the following who earnt their way into a new milestone club. We hope you enjoyed your milestone run and will be wearing your new t-shirt with us soon!
