Sixmilewater parkrun – Event #43 – 4th Sept ’21

Well the weather thankfully didn't listen to the forecast and a lovely morning was had for 82 runners, joggers and walkers.
Huge thank you to Margaret for stepping in, while Vivien had a well deserved break, and setting everything up early this morning. Thank you to all the volunteers, names below, for their expert help this morning. It makes the Run Director's job very easy when the volunteers step up and take on the roles.
Sadie Hambleton was our milestone runner today completing her 10th parkrun and as a junior, earning her white t shirt.
Last weekend was a busy one for running for Sixmile regulars and congratulations goes to Dave and Patricia Hamill, Lynn Hardie and Sarah Kinnear who competed in the Atlas Last Man Standing and amassed hours and miles of running...phenomenal achievement.
Last weekend also saw Larne Half Marathon take place and congratulations to all Sixmile parkrunners who took part, but special mention to Chris Hopkins who ran an amazing 1hr 11mins..incredible time! and also to Rhona Reid who volunteered today and once upon a time didn't think she could run 5k, but smashed 13 miles...well done.
Emma Proctor we can't let an anniversary like today go unmentioned. Margaret was so taken with the fact that this was the 2nd anniversary of you having a kidney transplant that we felt it deserved to be mentioned in despatches. Parkrun never ceases to amaze me, the diversity of people it brings together each with a story to tell and all running 5k to boot...respect.
Until the next time "</p
