Run Report Event #71 – another soggy one!

Summer - what can we say??? At least is was fairly warm and the rain at least washed away any sweat that may have been in your eyes. It's just such a shame that the rain was driving and hiding one of the world's most beautiful views!

BUT! The rain did not dampen our spirits and we were thrilled to welcome 56 people to the forest to join us for parkrun this week, 24 of whom had never visited us before. Despite the conditions 8 people managed to notch up a new PB this week, including Matthew Atkinson who was our first finisher - following on from his second place last week and a PB last week too - on fire! Joe Hudd was hot on Matthew's heels bagging himself second place & a new PB too. Whinlatter Forest parkrun volunteer Carol Harvey also bagged her self a new PB - well done everyone!

Grace Walker joined the parkrun family this week and completed her first ever parkrun  - an amazing achievement and she was first back in her JW10 age category! Well done.

This week Jasper was our first parkrun dog back, along with his human Tanya!

All the fanfare this week, must go to our incredible volunteers who were prepared to stand out in the rain to make sure everyone could run safely and have a great time. We don't have enough words to thank you enough.
