Following a spell of really hot weather, we were delighted to see 78 people come along to join us on Saturday. We were unsure if the warm weather may deter people from running up a mountain but it seems not! The sun shone and everyone was in high spirits.
Despite the heat, 9 people achieved a new PB - incredible! Well done to you all!
It was another week for a high number of first time visitors to the forest - 37 in total, we hope you all had an enjoyable morning and that we see you again soon. Phillip Stones joined the parkrun family by completing his first ever parkrun.
We sent our celebrations to our friends in Whitehaven as Whitehaven parkrun marked it's first anniversary. We hope you enjoyed our video!
The story of the day though has to go to our incredible volunteer team who managed an incident out o the course very well. For the first time ever we had to deploy the 1st aid van to assist a parkrunner that had become unwell. Thankfully everything was ok in the end. This incident put to test our emergency plan and it was fantastic to see that it worked well. parkrunners please remember if you see the van coming towards you it is because there is a first aid incident that we need to assist with.
Massive thanks to the volunteer team for going above and beyond their usual duties this week- a round of applause to: Samantha AYERS • Megan STOTT • John SCRIVENS • Hazel DAVIES • Rachel JONES • Siobhan GASCOIGNE • Sonia DRYDEN • Brendan CARLIN • Tony DUNCAN • Elspeth JOHNSON • Ava MURRAY • Liam JOHNSON
