No storms were advised over the weekend but it was still quite blustery at parkrun, signs were on lock down to make sure they didn’t blow away. Route was still muddy..when isn’t it…roll on the spring and warmer days.
However we had PB’s galore 16 no less, we welcomed 17 first-timers, and Oscar was celebrating his 6th birthday by completing his 26th parkrun. Stuart completed his 150th parkrun and congratulation to Helen for reaching your 50th parkrun.
If you haven’t seen our posts already then our 4th Birthday parkrun celebrations are in planning and we are pleased to say that we will be running the route in reverse (not actually running backwards but forwards in an anticlockwise motion).
We will have cakes (supplied by Coop) as well as other goodies, goody bags for the younger runners, and perhaps a spot prize or two.
We would love for you to dress up and with World Book Day coming up why not come dressed as your favourite book character (fact or fiction!). How many Harry Potters will we see, or Matildas?
We hope that Kent Messenger will be along with a photographer too, to mark this brilliant celebration, along with our own photographer!
