There was a family theme running through Saturday's parkrun. Brother and sister Alex and Tilly were barcode scanning (Tilly first came to Wetherby parkrun just to meet Joseph whippet!) One of our marshals, Will brought along his daughter in her fantastic 'cross country' buggy and we were so happy to see 7 year old Tamsin taking part in her first parkrun with her proud dad Martin.
Some people enjoy running or walking with family or friends, whilst others enjoy having an hour or so just for themselves - I've heard many people say it 'sets them up for the weekend'.
Of course, being Wetherby we also had plenty of dogs. Teddy our Tail Walker brought along her dog Dobby who will only do 2 laps of the course and then is quite content to be looked after at the finish line whilst Teddy completes the last lap. I'm sure many parkrunners will know just how he feels!
This week 94 people ran, jogged and walked the course, of whom 21 were first timers and 7 recorded new Personal Bests. Representatives of 17 different clubs took part.
The event was made possible by 15 volunteers:
Gillian FOX • Teddy WILCOX • Will GREENWOOD • Leo KNAPTON • Helen TATE • Elizabeth BALL • Vanessa YEOMANS • Henry PRICE • Karen GLYNN • Helen FOREMAN • Tilly FOREMAN • Alex FOREMAN • Barry HUTCHINSON • Trish COMET-SMITH • Pauline GALLACHER
