The event on this week had a more autumnal feel as the temperature dropped a little and as 95 people ran, jogged and walked the course, we were gifted some nice cooling rainfall to keep us all cool. This week I had chance to talk to a few of our visitors including Dave and Heather Collins who joined us from Bournemouth parkrun, they were on holiday in Okehampton but made the trip to the trails to enjoy our course, Dave was our most seasoned parkrunner today completing his 276 parkrun, and also Alan Wetherlet a veteran of Heartlands parkrun, quite a quirky course if you haven’t ran it yet, well worth a visit. Welcome to you, and to all our first timers of which we had 29 this week.
The glorious mud and rain made PBs a bit harder this week but still 18 of you managed this fete and representatives of 23 different clubs took part.
This week Jerry Kevern ran his milestone 25th run whilst Laurence Hicks and Amelia Edgson ran their first and joined the parkrun family. I hope to see lots of you next week please let us know if you are celebrating any milestones.
