This week 105 people ran, jogged and walked the course, which contained a good mix of puddles and mud, always a bit more fun when you get dirty!! Luckily the set- up team had cleared all the fallen branches, major rocks and untrained dragons, so we runners were free to enjoy the delights of the trails without too much worry.
One runner celebrated a milestone today, congratulations to Rebecca Towe who clocked up her 100th parkrun, definitely a case of keeping it in the family, as she becomes the third member of the Towe family to hit this milestone. Luckily they’re not running in opposite directions or they would never see each other again.
We have a number of runners close to varying milestones in the coming weeks , I hope to give all of you a mention to help celebrate your achievements, official and arbitrary so please feel free to shout out when asked by the RD in the pre run brief.
20 runners today were first timers at the trails and 4 of those were brand new to the parkrun family, welcome to all our visitors and first time parkrunners its great to see new faces enjoying our parkrun each week.
Despite the soft going underfoot 17 fleet footed runners managed new PBs (not that I’m jealous) the youngest being in the age 10 category and the oldest in the 65-69 age category, so there’s hope for me yet, well done to each of you.
Representatives of 10 different clubs took part with a first ever representative of Run DST
