WHITSTABLE PARKRUN REPORT – No. 554 06/08/2022
Sunny Whitstable, with a cooling northerly breeze, welcomed 345 runners to parkrun this week, one more than last week, with tourists from South Africa, Norfolk, Reading and elsewhere in Kent.
The stats: 48 were first timers at Whitstable, 15 of them making their parkrun debuts – hope you all enjoyed it and will be back! Ashley Day, Chloe Wang, Helen Clark and Deborah Christodoulou all ran their 50th, it was Gianluca Marcelli’s 100th and Bromley Veteran Roger Harris chose Whitstable for his 400th parkrun. There were 29 PBs. Congratulations and well done to you all!
As ever, a huge thank you to all our volunteers without whom parkrun and the achievements of all 345 finishers today, and the finishers every week, couldn’t happen – Sterling work! More volunteers are always welcome, if you’re ready to take a turn click the link on the Whitstable parkrun website https://www.parkrun.org.uk/whitstable/.
Another reminder is needed, it seems, of the (nationwide) parkrun rule on dog leads: they must be handheld, not attached to the waist – otherwise the runner is liable to be disqualified.
Have a lovely weekend everyone!
