11th September 2021

I don't know what you all thought but I thought conditions were pretty much perfect for a parkrun. An amazing team of 20 volunteers were assembled by our RD, Jim Hendry. It was my first chance to run Strathclyde parkrun since the parkrun pause and it was awesome to be back running my home event.

Special mention to Brian William Morris who ran his 250th parkrun on Saturday, his 126th at Strathclyde. Brian started his parkrun journey on 28th May 2011 and has ran at 54 different locations. Brian has also been a regular volunteer at Strathclyde and was joined on Saturday by his wife and daughter, Kayleigh, who ran her 7th 5K parkrun. Well done team Morris.

Other notable milestones were William Burgess who ran his 150th parkrun and Graeme Kennedy who ran his 50th parkrun.Well done, Gents.

Strathclyde parkrun Event number 487

Well guys, glad you are all reading the run reports and posts on social media. Last week as you recall we had an issue with participants at the front end of course not making way for regular park users. This morning we had a complement from a member of the general public saying that he appreciated the participants giving him room as he walked on the shared paths. Well done, guys - let's keep it up!

Saturday morning was another hugely successful event with a field of 323 people despite the damp conditions. In the field on Saturday were another 62 first timers - a warm welcome to the parkrun family.

As you will be aware we are operating under the COVID Framework and as such can no longer do shout outs. However, we will continue to acknowledge shout outs on our social media channels. Last week we welcomed Harris Rosling into the Junior 10 club, Harris celebrated this milestone by recording a PB. Yesterday Peter Williams, a Strathclyde regular, ran his 250th parkrun of which 199 have been run at Strathclyde - well done, Peter. Another milestone recorded yesterday was for Graeme Blackwood who ran his 50th parkrun. Graeme was accompanied by his son, Calum, who ran his first parkrun. Well done, the Blackwoods.

If you want a shout out posted on social media or the run report please speak to your RD.

As we move into September a reminder that Strathclyde parkrun is brought to you every Saturday by volunteers and we are always looking for participants to step forward and share the responsibility. Since we started back we have relied heavily on our core team most of whom also like to run so if you would like to volunteer and share the load please email us at strathclyde@parkrun.com.
