Thanks again to Steven for his excellent report writing
This week we had 225 people coming along to Craigtoun to run jog and walk round the park. There were 20 new to St Andrews and 24 athletic clubs represented. There was also 3 parkrun first timers. We had visitors from Norwich, Hampshire, Belfast and …Dunfermline. Great to see you all.
International Women’s’ Day was on Sunday so well done for all those wearing purple to celebrate that event. We had two female runners in the top 6 and 105 female runners overall.
There were 23 PBs!
The race director mentioned that it was only five more park runs to the 400th park run at Craigtoun which also coincides with our 8th anniversary. This will be the 18th of April. There are a number of parkrunners who are also getting closer to significant parkrun milestones whether in the nervous nineties, the fidgety forties or any other significant anniversary. Please get in touch by email before the event to make sure we don’t miss any personal parkrun milestone at the race briefing.
Thank you to all the volunteers this week who make parkrun possible: Ronnie HUNTER BLAIR • Gary OVENSTONE • Adrian WOOD • Lachlan BRENNAN • Andrew Iain ARMSTRONG • Danny ROONEY • Angus BARRABLE • Katrin METSIS • Arvo KULU • George MCLEOD. And a special mention to Andrew Armstrong who volunteered at parkrun to enable him to complete the volunteering section for his Duke of Edinburgh Award
