This week we finally got to celebrate our second birthday after the wind prevented us from going ahead the week before.
In true 2nd birthday party style, there were balloons, cake and party hats! The volunteers really stood out with their hats and high vis vests!
It was lovely to see all 142 of you that came along to celebrate, it really created a fantastic atmosphere. Out of the 142, 53 people were new to Whinlatter Forest parkrun.
Joining the celebrations were Tony Duncan who completed his 50th parkrun and so joins the red t shirt gang and Mark Manley who completed his 100th parkrun - great milestones and congratulations from everyone at Whinlatter Forest parkrun.
In total there were 25 new PBs set on Saturday. Mike Walker who took finish token number 1 gained a new PB, as did Sabrina Shaw who knocked quite a bit of time off her previous best and this was only her 2nd run!
It was wonderful to see so many people join the parkrun family - welcome to: David Huddart, Darren Parker, Jeremy Ellman, Ray Charig, Charlie Bradshaw & Rachel Smith. The 1st one is always hard, but it does get easier!
Thanks as ever must go to our wonderful bunch of volunteers, who did a great job on Saturday. Thanks to: John SCRIVENS • Siobhan GASCOIGNE • Sharon BARRY • Sonia DRYDEN • Brendan CARLIN • Nathan FOX • David WILSON • Suzanna CRUICKSHANK • Cathy BRYANT
