“Bring us your cold, your wet, your huddled masses yearning to run free, as we hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men and women are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty, Running and the pursuit of PBs”
So it came to pass under the watchful eye of our RD in chief 91 citizens of the newly formed Tamar trails Waterworld set off to circumnavigate parksquelch. The conditions were best described as slightly wet and the heavens opened again just prior to the off, but the hi viz heroes out on the course were undeterred in encouraging the field of runners on their way round. Whilst enjoying the run and conditions immensly I also made sure to thank each of them on the way round as it wasn’t the best day to be stood out on the course. A big thank you to all of you volunteers.
This week 91 people ran, jogged and walked the course, of whom 25 were first timers and of those 6 choose Saturdays slightly precipitous day to record their first ever parkrun, welcome to Alex Hewitt, Sarah McCall, Tom Watson, Jess Alderley, Claire Hilless and Honey Sloman. Hope you enjoyed your first parkrun and we see you all back soon
