A drizzly start to the morning this week, but once again the atmosphere in the forest was not dampened!
A slightly larger than average crowd of 119 came along to run, jog and walk the course this week. True to Whinlatter form, half of this number were people coming to the forest for the very first time to take part in parkrun.
We welcomed back Nic Wiseman who looks after Keswick Junior parkrun who completed his 300th parkrun and whilst that's not an official parkrun milestone - what an amazing achievement!
While we're talking about amazing how about this for a fact....Lewys Poole came along this week with his Mum Emma, Dad Nigel & sister Carys from Moormead Junior parkrun. Lewys completed his 249th parkrun at Whinlatter this week, which means next week he will complete his official milestone 250th parkrun! Lewys is in the JM1O category but is only 8 and half years old, which we believe will make him the youngest person in the world to achieve 250 parkruns! Simply amazing!
This week we welcomed Tom & Anna Chignell to the parkrun family as they completed their forst every parkrun.
Conditions were good for PBs this week with 18 of you gaining a new one. Well done everyone!
