Wetherby’s first parkrun of the decade! Lots of you arrived and ran, jogged or walked the course. There was a good clutch of first timers, and in particular one very exuberant individual, whose name I do not know.
Anyway, you seemed to enjoy yourself and we do hope that you will come back to charm us each week.
There were three PBs, Erica di Martino, Demy Dowley, and Julian Hance. Also there were many of our regular runners, including Fiona Knapton with her daughter Lauren.
We also had first timers Kate Chandan, and her little son and daughter.
They all completed the course in a good time, but unfortunately they had no barcodes. Hopefully you will all register and come back to us soon.
We did have a problem with the finish tokens, so if anyone has been left out, please contact us.
Rob Whitaker, an early finisher turned volunteer, was invaluable in helping us resolve the problem by ensuring that everyone stayed in line in finishing funnel as the tokens were given out.
Just as seeing new faces is a pleasure it is equally nice to see runners returning after an absence. Nykie ran today, but was unable to match the grimace that her husband Ritchie always pulls for the camera.
Just a reminder that we have a pair of trainers left from 28th December run and some gloves from today’s run – if either of these belong to you, they are safe, and can be collected next week.
Colleen is your RD next week, so please come along and keep up your New Year resolutions so that we have over 100 runners yet again!!
