Crowland Parkrun - 7/9/19 - number 15
It was much cooler on the field today than recent weeks which made it perfect running conditions for parkrun and for Halmer Harriers Club takeover. 54 fabulous people joined us out on the course today to run, walk or jog their way around the 5k route, with 14 people attending Snowden fields for the first time, 5 of whom were new to the parkrun family, I hope you all enjoyed it. Tourists joined us from Coventry, Dudley and South Africa!
First to cross the line today was Mark Jennings (20.13) who enjoyed his first time at Snowden fields but has clocked up an impressive 488 parkrun’s overall! Second over the line with a new personal best was Junior runner Reuben Cave (20.14) First Lady home was Stephanie Beavis (24.40), again setting a new personal best. A special mention goes to Anita Blackburn who completed her 50th parkrun milestone today (36.04) also setting a new personal best. A big well done to the 20 runners that set new Personal bests today, that’s a whooping 37% of those that out on course.
A big thank you to all the volunteers today from Halmer Harriers run club, Katherine BAXTER, Tim BAXTER, Stephanie BEAVIS, Simon ELDRIDGE, Lisa GILL, Peter HALL, Samantha HALL, Daz HIND, Joanne JACKLIN, Sonya LAWRENCE, Diana LETTICE, Brian OGDEN, Janice PURDY, Marie SAMPSON, Amelia SIDDALL, Steve TUCKER, Sue TUCKER-REYNOLDS, Carly WILKINSON you all did a sterling job. As a relatively new member of the club I’d just like to tell others what a super friendly bunch they are and if your looking for a group to join to compliment your parkrun experience then Halmer Harriers is the place to go!
Just a reminder that there is no parkrun at Snowden Fields for the next 2 weeks (14th and 21st September) but don’t let this deter you, why not use it as a chance to check out some other local runs. Boston is a personal favourite of mine and I’m thinking of adding Kings Lynn to my list next week.
Finally I would personally like to give everyone a pat on the back for participating this morning, parkrun is a fantastic way to start the weekend so well done to you all!
Have a great couple of weeks and we look forward to welcoming you back to Snowden Fields on 28th September.
