Saturday 14th March was my first stint as RD at the still fairly new Wollaton Hall parkrun and I am sure I am not the only one that was pleased it went ahead despite the fears around spreading viruses. 295 of you wonderful runners finished our 5th Wollaton Hall 5k run with 143 of you joining us for the first time and 74 of you achieving your WH parkrun PBs - well done!
It was great to see many elbow bumps (as handshakes and high fives are so 2019!) as you crossed the line with big smiley faces! Not least of all these two speedy runners who both celebrated a milestone with us; Benjamin Smith was our first finisher and what a way to celebrate his 100th parkrun! Stuart Neyton wasn't too far behind finishing 6th for his 50th parkrun. Well done both!
Also a big congratulations to one of our EDs who celebrated his 100th parkrun and first ever run at Wollaton Hall. Our parkrun wouldn't have been made possible without Geoff Pennington so thank you and congratulations! Elbow bumps all round for you!
Thanks as always to our wonderful volunteers who without their help our event wouldn't have been possible. It was a seemless event - the quickest results processing I have ever managed so an extra high five, no sorry elbow bump to them:
