International Women’s Day – Run Report by Kelly Jackson

Saturday March 7th saw Sewerby parkrun celebrate Internal Women's Day at parkrun #431!

The Sewerby ladies decked in their purple and hi-viz were encouraging, smiley, supportive and organised for the 220 participants. Karen our RD, gave a great informative race brief and set us off to battle the windy cliff path, have our picture captured by Tom to then be blown back up the cliff path before being able enjoy the shelter in the flower gardens and woodland, then into the finish funnel! The course must have been in good form as it witnessed 32 new personal bests but also had 26 first runners.

Our hi-viz heroes were aged from 8 years through to over 70, with runners aged from 5 to 80- we did have a couple of buggy runners which is no mean feat with the woodland, and our regular canine friends used all 4 paws to pull their humans around - parkrun truly is for everyone whether you run, walk or volunteer.

Thank you to Gill, our volunteer co-ordinator, who each week organises and recruits the volunteers so parkrun can happen. If you feel you can offer your time, please email and we shall stick you on the roster. It would be amazing to have a rota as strong as Saturday’s.
