The windy weather did not deter the 137 people who ran, jogged and walked the course this morning.
We had 28 were first timers and representatives of 22 different clubs but really must applaud the 29 recorded new Personal Bests in those tough conditions.
A big shout out to Carol from JSM who ran her 100th parkrun and provided us with banana bread, shortbread and some amazing fudge after the run. Also good to meet some new faces to Inverurie, we look forward to welcoming you back in brighter conditions!
We had a first this morning in that Gordon volunteered as photographer although he did say he struggled to find many smiley, happy faces! We look forward to seeing the photos later!
Today was event number 19 and we are not sure when we will be able to hit that 20 button! Due to the current Coronavirus situation we continue to receive full guidance from HQ and will keep everyone updated on FB about our position going forward. Thank you to everyone for their understanding and support in this.
As quoted by Davie Black on parkrun Friends Scotland FB site we “Can't begin to emphasise the importance of the commitment our volunteers are making today as we face some very concerning times right across the world. Huge nod our yellow fellows one and all. “
