Run Report Event #81

Finally a week when the rain stopped and all the parkrunners and volunteers got home dry! Yippee!

This Saturday 193 people came to join in the parkrun fun of whom 104 were first timers to the forest. We saw 8 people complete their first ever parkrun to join the parkrun family - we hope you all had a fab time!

There was much to celebrate on the hill as regular runner and volunteer Janet Evans completed her 100th parkrun - a fantastic achievement and sees her join the black t shirt gang! Well done!

Congratulations to Tom Harrison who set a record for the VM80-84 category getting round the course in a fantastic time of 42.18!

In total 24 people achieved a new personal best, which is wonderful. 7 of those people were representing Derwent AC who brought a long a large group to run the course this week - the training is clearly paying off!

It's fantastic listening to all the stories as people complete the 5km route. The celebrations this week really do reflect that parkrun is for everyone - run, jog or walk - your parkrun - your way!

Without the volunteer team, parkrun wouldn't happen. This week's team was led by Jo Grucy our run director and we'd like to thank: Diana MITCHELL  • Rachel JONES • Tanya COATES • Paul COLDHAM • Anthony GAGG • Siobhan GASCOIGNE • Sonia DRYDEN • Brendan CARLIN • David WILSON • David SANDERSON
