A blustery morning greeted parkrunners at the second attempt at event number 41 having had to cancel the previous week due to storm Dennis.
A pre-run course recce helped the RD make a last minute decision that the out and back alternative disused railway line route was the order of the day. We are very fortunate to have this second course option in Tetbury.
A parkrun tourist came from as far away as Canada to join the hardy local parkrunners/walkers.
No big milestones this weekend, but there was 15bfirst timers to Tetbury, a very smiley family with matching bobble hats doing their 10th parkrun who helped make up the 80 runners for this event. The rain fortunately stayed away, a rarity of late!
I came along with two running buddies from Running Somewhere Else one of whom was running her first parkrun - Tetbury was the course we chose for her first. Have to say we were (not so secretly!) pleased to hear we weren’t going to tackle ‘the hill’ given the conditions underfoot - plenty of time to enjoy that challenge when the ground eventually dries up.
My sister also came along to support us and remarked just how friendly the volunteers were and that they made an effort to come over and chat as she waited patiently for us at the finish line. It’s what we all love and know about parkrun but it’s still great to receive the feedback. So once again thanks to all hi-viz volunteers without whom our parkruns could not take place. Please do consider giving volunteering a go as it’s a great way to get out and meet new people.
Another successful parkrun and look forward to my next visit.
