Not too hot, not too windy, not too cold - that sums up the conditions for the fourth run since our return to the Moor.
With many of our core team away, it was down to long-time Run Director Nigel to guide our team of 38 wonderful volunteers. We were delighted to welcome our founding Event Director Ian Kirtley (shown below in his ED days) back for the first time since Covid so we were able to give him a well—deserved shout-out.
We had 434 participants, of which there were 24 parkrun first timers, and 70 who did their first Town Moor event. We saw 60 PBs of which 8 achieved this on their 2nd ever event. It’s always impressive to see people continue to get faster year after year: 8 years after first running with us Sam Hansen achieved a Town Moor PB on his 180th parkrun.
Congratulations are due to to several milestone eventers this week: Carol Davidson completed her 200th run, Steven Taylor and Guy Letts each completed their 150th, Moj Feshki did his 100th and Chris Parkin finished his 50th.
We were going to be cancelled for the Hoppings next week, but as they are sadly not happening we will be back to do it all again. See you then!
