Rutland Water parkrun, Event number 263 – 11th June 2022

This week 160 people ran, jogged and walked the course. Numbers were lower than we have been seeing recently, no doubt due to some local races taking place which many of our regulars were taking part in. However, it was great to see lots of people joining us from other parkruns, and 6 people coming along to complete their very first parkrun. We hope to see you back again next week!

We’re well known for windy conditions at Rutland Water parkrun, and today was no exception with a helpful tailwind on the way out and a very noticeable headwind on the way back. Despite the wind, there were some great performances as always including first male Simon Fell, with sons Isaac and Noah finishing not far behind, and first female Hannah Lord.

Three milestones to celebrate this week – well done to Christine Sharp (100), Tina Sayers (50) and Robert Wright (50). I look forward to seeing you wearing your new t-shirts soon.

Huge thanks as always to our volunteers who helped make this week’s parkrun happen. We always love seeing different volunteers each week, so if you haven’t volunteered in a while or you’re on the injury bench, why not drop us an e-mail.
