With Valentine’s Day safely negotiated the Craigtoun parkrunners only had the front edge of Storm Dennis to contend with. Despite Windy Wilson’s weather reports 220 runners and walkers took part.
We had 6 parkrun first timers and 11 runners new to St Andrews including one who was
completing their 412 Parkrun. We welcomed visitors from Lincolnshire and from Canada, who all looked delighted to be at Craigtoun huddled together listening to the race director’s
latest injury reveal pre-race briefing
There were 25 personal bests with the first three finishers all posting their personal bests, first and second finishers breaking the 16 minute and 17 minute barriers in doing so. There was one more runner whose percentage was above 80%, well done Jim Scobie!
Thanks to the well wrapped up and hi-vized volunteers this week who make parkrun
possible: Jim Aiton, Graeme Braid, Karen Brennan, Lachlan Brennan, Tone Brennan, Grant Cumming, Lynne Herd, Tony Linney, Anne Metcalf-Macdonald, Gary Ovenstone, Adrian Wood and Catriona Yates. Special mention to our youngest ever Tail Walker volunteer - 5yr old Hannah Palmer assisted by mum Laura - she really is a wee star!
Post-race analysis was held in the Craigtoun Cafe as usual. The Cafe received a super
review in the Courier earlier this month. Well done Parkrunners, thank you very much
volunteers and well done to all the staff at the cafe.
Have a great weekend
