Thanks to everyone who took part this morning, both participants and volunteers - all of you help make Stormont parkrun the amazing friendly and welcoming community it is.
This week 263 people ran, jogged and walked the course, of whom 29 were first timers and 41 recorded new Personal Bests. Representatives of 20 different clubs took part.
We'll do our best to arrange less windy conditions for you next time - one day we're going to be lucky enough to get a tail wind down the avenue - it hasn't happened yet, in four and a half years, but here's hoping!
A big well done to the folks doing milestone runs today: Karen Steele completed her 100th parkrun and Andrew Bates completed his 50th parkrun, achieving a new PB in the process!
The event was made possible by 25 amazing volunteers:
Marion BROWN • Davy LAMBE • Marianne HOOD • Anne MCNALLY • Max MCROBERTS • Stephen HAMILTON • Anne SMITH • Peter LOSTY • Una MCNEILL • Kathie EDWARDS • Alison CANNING • Lara CANNING • Jeff SPENCE • Rohan RAMAVATH • James MCCLEAN • Helena DRYSDALE • Ellen DEEHAN • Michael SADLIER • Catherine ROSS • Leah DRYSDALE • Rohith RAMAVATH • Rebecca SADLIER • Andy ORR • Maura MCMATH • Amanda FIELDHOUSE
There are plenty of opportunities to join our fantastic team of hi-vis heroes over the next few weeks and we'd love to have some new faces on board. All roles are straightforward and full training will be provided; if you fancy giving it a go, or even if you'd just like more information on what's involved, just get in touch with firstname.lastname@example.org.
Today's full results and a complete event history can be found on the Stormont parkrun Results Page.
Don't forget that Stormont parkrun will not be taking place next Saturday, 8th February, due to a cross country event taking place in the estate - why not use this as an opportunity for some tourism to one of the many other events we're lucky enough to have on our doorstep, and we'll see you all back at Stormont on the 15th.
