A thin mist hung over the Tor, framing a cool and still morning for 146 people to complete the Street course. First time visitors numbered 25 and the perfect conditions aided 29 parkrunners to record new Personal Best times. A string of fast finishers and friendly competition at the top resulted in some long sought after firsts: Edward Brown sub 19, Marc Rossiter sub 20, Peter and Jack Barker sub 23, Carol Martyn and Mark Pople sub 24.
Meanwhile, just 20 minutes later, Teresa England proudly celebrated her Milestone 50 event with a tailwalk!
Many congratulations to all!
We are fortunate at Street to always have plenty of keen volunteers to cover each role every week. A rota of Run Directors, a reliable setup and takedown crew, an army of enthusiastic and cheerful marshalls, at least 2 tailwalkers each week, knowledgeable barcode scanners, a fully manned funnel team, a professional photographer (usually) and in the background the all important results-processing wizardry, volunteer coordination, report writing and stream of social media updates. Huge thanks to every one of you for, not just making parkrun happen, but making Street parkrun such a positive, welcoming and wonderful place! This week the stars were:
