Well done to all 137 of you who ran/swam in the rain this morning, (and missed the Rugby!), good effort.
Congratulations Brian Laverick achieving 250 parkruns, Sharon Husband getting that 200 and Sean O'Rourke reaching 50. Superb achievements
I would like to dedicate this report to our volunteers this morning, who had to withstand the rain, so all 137 of you could participate. I have just about dried out lol
A few external issues occurred separately with cars and windows this morning, meaning a couple of volunteers that were down couldn't help. This is totally understandable and I would like to thank Alan Guy & Kerri Muldowney for offering their time and efforts still.
Our amazing pre-setup team of Kenny Salkeld, Alan Guy & Billy Sigsworth were drenched as I arrived at 8.20, thank you guys, brilliant as always.
On barcode scanning I had my two superb children (biased I know!) Jess & Jacob, Jacob is only 7 yet he loves barcode scanning and manages well, just a note to those who shy away from this and Dan Mooney, stepping in after he had ran.
Our solo timekeeper, Susanne Davison, no pressure there Susanne lol who as she does each week did a sterling job, even with frozen fingers.
We had Isabelle Blackburn, doing her Duke of Edinburgh and handing out tokens for the first time today, another junior showing the seniors how it is done. She is even attempting backup timer next week!
Out on the course, in the heavy rain, supporting all the runners we had: Eddie Meehan, Phil Cawood, John Fearns, Sarah Davies, Linda & Billy Sigsworth, Ian & Susan Watson, Mike Peel, Kenny Salkeld and Alan McGarrity, with Richard Oliver having the task of tail walker, each one of them collecting the equipment for us. Thank you guys, especially in the conditions this morning, making it safe for us to go ahead. A vital part of parkrun, regardless of the weather.
You all help make what was a stressful start to my Saturday morning, end up good. Without you all, we wouldn't have the ability for Stewart parkrun to go ahead.
I'm now off to watch the Boro match, Why o Why?? Wish me luck
See you next week,
Stewart parkrun, Middlesbrough
