Run report 207 – 10th August 2019

It was dull and cloudy and no number of filters have been able to remove a grey sky from the photos. But as soon as the gates opened and parkrunners started flooding the park, it was brighter, there were smiles and chatter... Is it not great to start the weekend with something so uplifting as parkrun? Surrounded by friends, old and new, and by 'parkrun buddies' (people whom we see only on Saturday mornings but they have become part of our lives, and something is missing if we can't see them once a week).IMG_5469

This week 220 people ran, jogged and walked the course, of whom 24 were first timers (9 completed their first ever parkrun) and 14 recorded new Personal Bests. We had visitors from Nottingham, Galway and Malling parkrun in Kent.

We had 3 pacers: 21 John Stevenson, 23 Colin O’Prey, 25 Trevor Moutray. All ran on target. They were happy to help and we were happy to have them, so win-win. We got positive feedback and we hope to organise pacers week as a recurring event. Please help us to make it happen by volunteering. See opportunities here: https://www.parkrun.org.uk/stormont/futureroster/
