Thurso parkrun welcomed 2022 with a New Year’s Day parkrun.
We had an amazing 66 people turn up at 9.30am to run and walk. We also had three otters join us, playing in the river, which gave much joy to our volunteers and parkrunners.
We had 13 first timers including tourists from Dunfermline, Glasgow, Winchester, Inverness and Hillsborough, Northern Ireland. We hope that our local first timers join us again very soon. There were 3 personal bests, what a way to start your new year! Well done to Graeme Bremner, Sheila Smith and Catherine Lamont.
First over the line was Kevin Cormack in 18.43, followed by Bryan Newlands and Adam Critchley. First female was Sheila Smith in 23.38, 2nd female was Marnie Ker and 3rd female was Jennifer Bremner. First junior was visitor was Joe Capwell, who normally runs at Inverness / Torvean.
Bryan Newlands reached his 50th parkrun milestone and Leonard Zabek reached his 200th parkrun milestone. Congratulations to both of you!
A big thank you to Rebecca SINCLAIR, Aileen SIMMONITE, Marie CUTHBERT, Sophie CUTHBERT, Andrew CUTHBERT, Ruan PEAT, Kerrie MACKENZIE, Mairi CLASPER, Tony CHALMERS, Colleen WOTHERSPOON, John CUTHBERT, Andrew CRAWFORD, Ellie CUTHBERT and Frederick BRADLEY for volunteering.
Lynne and Leonard Zabek who joined us from Dunfermline very kindly took along tablet for all the volunteers and the sweet treats were greatly appreciated, thank you both.
Liz Black was celebrating her 60th birthday on New Year’s Day and shared the birthday joy with providing tablet for all the parkrunners. Thanks Liz and we hope you enjoyed the rest of your birthday.
Happy parkrunning in 2022
