Temple Newsam parkrun
Event number 234
19th August 2017
Firstly, many thanks go to Crossgates Harriers this week for successfully staging their take over and introducing the Superheroes theme- there were some great costumes on show.
This week 182 people ran, jogged, walked (and possibly flew) the course, of whom 19 were first timers. Representatives of 25 different clubs took part.
The event was made possible by 34 volunteers:
John Paul STUTTARD • Sarah MARQUIS-LINLEY • Melvyn BURTON • Jo MOORWOOD • Ronnie BRAY • Gillian HALL • Paul ADAMSON • Graham WILSON • Julie SMITH • Alan SMITH • Gillian LAMBERT • Shaun LOFTUS • Kate CRONSHAW • Chris ADAMSON • Bradley CLARKE • Louise CLARKE • Lynn PARSONS • James CLARKE • Chris MEADLEY • Julie WILSON • Christian JACKSON • Andy DARBY • Cirilo PALENZUELA • Katherine FENTON • David HUDSON • Loz DARBY • Paula WATSON • Andrew HARVEY • Janine LEE • Claire MALTAS • Lourdes MARQUIS-LINLEY • Matty CAMPBELL • Hannah LONG • Imogen HESTER
Thanks to all volunteers for helping out. Please consider putting yourself forward for volunteering roles -you are all Superheroes in our eyes and you don't even have to dress up for it (most weeks).
Also featured this week was the popular re-introduction of the original Route A course, a little flatter and perhaps faster. This seemed to help a whopping 39 of you to record new Personal Bests. Superhuman efforts all round!
Jason Firth clocked up his 50th run and Nathan Vaughn his 100th. Well done both!
