Run Report, Event 297, 27th April 2019.

There are surely very few things that would get us all out of our warm, dry houses on a morning like that and wilfully run in circles, or stand and cheer in a sodden Wallace Park.

That’s exactly what 132 finishers and 20 volunteers did today. Our wisdom and sanity wholly justified. None of us may ever be dry again, but community was the winner today. Well done all of us. 

Milestones care not for weather conditions, and there were plenty to get through this morning.

First of all, well done to our brand new Run Director, Tim Haslett, who made his RD debut today. Despite his flagrant disregard for his personal well-being and health/safety during the briefing we can all agree that he did a marvellous job and we look forward to many more runs under his direction. The 9th different person to don the RD jacket. Well done Tim.

Elsewhere on the milestone front, Iain Webb made it to 150 (well done Iain!), Nathan Lindsay made it to 100 (two weeks ago in Glasgow), and Rory Moore made it to his 10th milestone. Well done to them all!

It was also our second “5k Your Way, Move Against Cancer” event. Make sure to check out their dedicated Facebook page and all the videos on it, as we shared earlier. 

Well done too to the Couch To 5k graduates joining us from Lough Moss. Sorry we couldn’t organise better weather for you. The sun usually always shines in Wallace Park. 

Miraculously 16 of you recorded new personal bests today, so if that was you then you deserve a very big well done indeed.

All of our results are in the usual place: https://www.parkrun.org.uk/wallace/results/latestresults/

As for our volunteers, on a day like today, we were truly indebted to them all for standing in those elements with remarkable enthusiasm throughout. The power of parkrun eh! On a day like that, words really are insufficient.

We doff our caps this week to:

Run Director: Tim Haslett

Timekeepers: Jim Pow and Nathan Howe.

Finish Token hander-outers: Nathan Lindsay.

Funnel manager: Beverly Reid.

Barcode Scanners: Naomi Bryans, Laura Johnston and Katie McAuley.

Marshals: Paul Alister, Kerstin Marshall, Michael Harris, James Gault and Meadow Cinnamond.

Tea/Coffee: Heather Patterson and Therese Stewart.

Pre-event setup: Ian Dyer, Sarah Creighton, Gwyneth Hinds, Nuala McMorrow and Alastair Dickson.

Tail walker: Team Ward, namely, Natalie, Beth and Susanna. 

Our fleet of pacers also excelled themselves as per usual today. We hope you availed of their skills. Many thanks indeed to Niall Ward (20 minutes), PK (21), Colin Ward (22), Peter Campbell (23), Jonathan Davis (24), Colin Ramsden (25), Ian Dyer (26), Sharon Ramsden (27), David Orr (28), Aoife Quinn (29), Fiona Dickson (30), Linda and Minnie (34), and finally, Noelle Dean and Brenda Harris (35).

Two bits of news looking towards the next month. We are cancelled on the 11th and 18th May as the park is otherwise occupied with the Colour Run and Balmoral Show buses. 

We look forward to seeing you all next weekend. It has to be sunny, surely.
