Run report #8: February 26th 2017

The 26th of February wasn’t very cold. Thankfully, hurricane Doris had passed through and it was safe to run; the fallen tree did not block the path.

It was a great turn out with 89 young runners raring to go - unfortunately one particular marshal left the scanners at home. He very kindly whizzed home to get them. When he got back, he was welcomed by a huge applause only to trip over and land on his front. It was truly a moment we will never forget. [Ed: that particular marshal was Stephen, and believe me, we're not going to let him forget his circus act either]

Amongst the huge amount of 89 runners were 15 newcomers. We hope you had a great time and will come again soon.

A huge congratulations goes to Oliver Farrer and Chloe Gregory Moss for being the first male and female to cross the line.

A big well done to the 17 pupils who achieved personal best (PB’S).

We would like to praise Adele Arbidane and Blake Beach for completing their 11th park run which is equivalent to half a marathon (22km).They will get their wristband next week.

We encourage Daniela Putnina and Rihannah Marsh to run next week as they will achieve their 11th park run too.

Last but not least, thank you to Paul and his team of marshals; we couldn’t have done it without you.

See you soon


The Whippets.
