Sixmilewater parkrun – Event #51 – 30th Oct ’21

Another week that threatened to be a wash out, yet turned into a perfect parkrun morning.
61 runners and walkers made the trip to Ballyclare and these included visitors from Yorkshire and a contingent from Ballymena Runners who had come to do some pre McConnell Shield x country training and joined in with our parkrun beforehand.
On the milestone front we had Mark Evans (25), Rhona Reid (25) and Andrew Pollock (10). Apologies to our resident time keeper Stephen McCullough, who earned his purple t shirt last week for 25 Volunteer roles.
Parkrun doesn't happen without your marshals, timekeepers, barcode scanners etc...so a huge thank you to Margaret, Patricia, Vivien, Alistair, Kelly, Jeanette and Iain. and a very super Run Director - Tanya Smith thank you!
The McConnell Shield x country is in Sixmile Park next week, however parkrun WILL go ahead as normal. See you all at 9.20 for Nicole's Run Director brief.
Until the next time, Tanya

As it says at the start of this run report, Sixmile had its 50th Birthday this morning and 71 runners/walkers and 9 volunteers helped us celebrate. Vivien headed off to her old stomping ground at Carrickfergus parkrun and took over Run Director duties there, and I stepped in to run this morning.
Margaret had a table full of home baked delights and refreshments waiting for everyone when they finished and the runners greatly appreciated this treat. They were lucky the Volunteers didn't eat most of them (especially the malteser celebrations "</p
