The second event of 2020 saw numbers return to more normal levels for us and we welcomes 141 people to run, jog or walk the course on Saturday. This time though the locals out weighted the first timers with 48 of the 141 being new to Whinlatter.
It was a mean and moody day with the cloud fairly low, but it was nice to see the views as the parkrunners moved around the course. The conditions however, proved to be ok as 22 of you gained a new PB. Whinlatter Forest volunteer David Wilson absolutely stormed through to a new PB knocking nearly 2 minutes off his previous best time. Rose Rowlands was most impressive with a new PB that was 10 minutes quicker than her previous time! Well done everyone.
Milestones were aplenty this week with Hedley Fletcher reaching 50 parkruns & Rachel Shaw completing her 100th! Definitely a parkrun to remember. This week 4 people joined the parkrun family by completing their first ever parkrun - welcome to: Colin Semple, Lausanne Jenkins, Sabrina Shaw & Darren Walker.
The most fantastic milestone this week though belongs to Janet Knights who completed her 25th volunteer stint! Thank you for all your support Janet, it really is appreciated.
Janet was surrounded by another fantastic volunteer team this week who were: Diana MITCHELL • John SCRIVENS • Jo GRUCHY • Rachel JONES • Sonia DRYDEN • Brendan CARLIN • Andrew KNIGHTS • David SANDERSON • Suzanna CRUICKSHANK • Janet KNIGHTS • Anna FERGUSON
We are looking forward to next Saturday when we will celebrate our second birthday! We'd love to see you there to run, jog walk or volunteer!
