Saturday 14th December will go down in our parkrun records books! Not only was it possibly the worst weather conditions with horizontal hail, sleet & snow but it was the day that parkrun friends Ewan & Paul broke the most amazing barrier. It was the day that Paul helped Ewan in his wheelchair to complete the entire course! Those that have visited us before know that we are famed for our rather challenging course and that we have the most elevation of any parkrun in the whole of the UK. The fact that they completed course was no mean feat and is completely incredible. Huge kudos to both of them and massive congratulations! It was lovely to see and hear everyone cheer them both around the course.
Congratulations are also in store for the 3 people who gained a new PB - George Fawkes, who took finish token 1, Michael Childs and Deborah Hallsworth. Well done!
Despite the wintry conditions this week 81 people came along to run, jog or walk the course and were supported by 9 amazing volunteers:
Carol HARVEY • Nick EVANS • John SCRIVENS • Andrew JONES • Sonia DRYDEN • Suzanna CRUICKSHANK • Stephen SINGLETON • Pauline SINGLETON • Ailsa HARRISON
Suzanna was very kind and brought along Celebrations for everyone to enjoy at the end, but we are not allowed to sing Happy Birthday! So, we'll just say it instead...HAPPY BIRTHDAY SUZANNA!
