Wow our numbers are slowly creeping up - 443 of you joined us for some Wimpole parkrun magic at the weekend with 47 first timers, 17 of you completing your first ever parkrun and starting the road to addiction! We had 21 of you completing your 2nd parkrun - We'd love that number to also stay above the first timers, as we love to welcome people back. We had and a huge 71 PBs!
We're completely reliant on volunteers - they are the life blood of parkrun and everyone of us at Wimpole is just that - a volunteer. Please be one of the 30 this week who step up to the mark. A huge thank you to everyone who did last week.
At the front of the cafe queue this week we had Aaron McGrady, who was a first timer to Wimpole, he led the pack home in 16:45! A very impressive run and exactly 60 seconds off our course PB. We had 14 runners who were sub 20 this week. Our fastest female this week was Emily Talbot with a brand spanking PB (What a run!) in 20:27 - she was also our fastest female junior (11-14). Our fastest male junior was Oliver Warburton (15-17) who completed the course in 19:02 - also with a new PB! That only leaves our fastest female adult which was Holly Christopher in 21:40 - also with a PB (it must have been something in the water this week!)
We did have some significant runs and I was personally very sorry to miss John Barber, one of our fantastic veterans (70-74), complete his 250th! John, you're an inspiration to us all - Very well done! https://www.facebook.com/ruth.mcguinness.589/videos/397863304325695/
We had 4 people who achieved their 50th - Miranda Horlor, Sarah Provan, Andrew Rawlings and Peter Allen - congratulations on a year of parkrun!

Until next week ....
Happy parkrunning ...
