Town Moor parkrun Event 508 – The Swamp-Monster Run

Town Moor parkrun Event 508 - The Swamp-Monster Run

Well done to everyone who came out today for a rainy Town Moor parkrun. There must have been a few people who looked out the window and questioned the decision to run today.

Our fastest runner today, Adrian Bailes, achieved his parkrun PB today with a time of 15:55. 18 people did their FIRST EVER parkrun today. Not only is this a great sign of parkrun increasing in numbers every week, but they did came to run the course on a rainy day for their first event. A particular welcome to Amelia Lind in the JW10 age category who has previously completed 16 junior parkruns and this was her first full 5km parkrun.

This week 388 people ran, jogged and walked the course, of whom 59 were first timers and 46 recorded new Personal Bests. Representatives of 46 different clubs took part.

We use the best waterproofing hardware for protecting phones so we can scan barcodes – sandwich bags. Thank you to Christine Powell for taking the time to wash and dry the “equipment”.


The event was made possible by 35 volunteers, so thank you so much to everyone!
